Bolt type shackles can be used in applications where round pin or screw pin shackles are used. However, a bolt type shackle is a better choice in permanent or long-term applications, or if there’s a risk of a load sliding on the shackle pin, causing it to rotate. The added safety measure from bolt/nut/cotter pin is the reason these shackles are also called safety anchor shackles.
Our galvanized bolt type / safety anchor shackles feature a zinc oxide coating for protection against rust and corrosion. A galvanized coating also gives the steels a more durable finish that’s more difficult to scratch and ding. Galvanized bolt type anchor shackles are also more cost effective than a stainless steel bolt type anchor shackle.
We offer 1/2" galvanized bolt type shackles up to 2 ½". As with every shackle, bolt type shackles have the size and working load limit permanently embossed for quick and easy identification.
