Features an increased shackle bow radius which provides a minimum 58% gain in sling bearing surface, eliminating the need for a thimble. The design also increases the usable sling strength minimum of 15% which can improve the working life of a wire rope sling.
Easy-Loc pin is non-rotating; weld-on handles provide ease of use (available on shackles with a 75 ton or more working load limit). Painted red for easy identification and the mark of Crosby® quality.
Alloy steel components are quenched and tempered for maximum strength. Shackles with working load limits of 7- 300 metric tons are forged; shackles with working load limits of 400-1550 metric tons are cast.
Finish varies by working load limit: hot dip galvanized body (7-55 tons); Dimetcoted body and pin (75 ton and larger).
All Crosby® shackles are manufactured with the product identification information and work load limit information embossed for easy and fast identification.
