Van Beest Wide Body Sling 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-6033 Sling Shackles are wide body shackles that can accommodate wider slings, offering increased sling-bearing surface area, usable sling strength and a great improvement to the life of wire rope slings. The design also eliminates the need for a thimble. Larger, heavier-duty slings or straps can fit into the bow of these shackles, as opposed to chain or D shackles. For applications requiring a smaller bow, it is recommended to use bow shackles. For applications that require the narrowest loop, it is recommended to use chain shackles. Bolt type shackles are used for heavy-duty securement applications with a connection that is permanent or long term, or for applications where the risk of the load sliding on the pin may occur, causing unsafe rotation. Bolt type shackles are also referred to as safety bolts due to the bolt/nut/cotter pin combination. The bow and pin on these Green Pin® P-6033 wide body sling shackles are alloy steel, Grade 8 quenched and tempered. The finish on the bow is painted silver, with the pin painted green. Note there is a +/-5% forging tolerance on inside width and length. In addition to Van Beest shackles, we offer Crosby® shackles, and shackles from Chicago Hardware, and affordably-priced import shackles that meet or exceed industry standards.
