Van Beest Alloy Bolt Type Shackles
Van Beest Green Pin® shackles are European-made, high-quality, and meet or exceed industry standards. Van Beest shackles are marked with steel grade and a traceability code. Green Pin® P-6036 Heavy Duty Shackles can accommodate the heaviest of loads, ranging in WLL from 120 tons to 1500 tons. Bolt type anchor shackles refer to a shackle design with a medium-sized O-shaped look and safety bolt. Larger slings or straps can fit into the bow of these shackles, as opposed to chain or D shackles. For applications that require a slightly larger loop, it is recommended to use bow shackles. For applications that require a smaller loop, it is recommended to use chain shackles. Bolt type shackles are typically used for heavy-duty securement applications with a connection that is intended to be permanent or long term, or for applications where the risk of the load sliding on the pin may occur, potentially causing unsafe rotation. Bolt type shackles can also be referred to as safety bolts due to the bolt/nut/cotter pin combination. The bow and pin on these Green Pin® P-6036 Alloy Bolt Type Anchor Shackles are alloy steel, Grade 8 quenched and tempered. The finish on the bow is painted silver and the pin is painted green. A hot-dipped galvanized finish on the 120 ton shackle provides extra durability against dings and scratches. Note there is a +5% forging tolerance on inside width and length. In addition to our Van Beest shackles, we offer Crosby® shackles, and a variety of shackles domestically from Chicago Hardware and affordably-priced import options that meet or exceed industry standards.
