Van Beest Shackles
Van Beest Green Pin® (G-4151) Screw Pin Chain Shackles
Van Beest Green Pin® shackles are European-made, high-quality, and meet industry standards. Each Van Beest shackle is marked with steel grade and traceability code. The G-4151 line meets performance requirements of US federal specification RR-C-271 Type IVB Class 2, Grade A. Chain shackles and D, or dee, shackles are terms that are often used interchangeably, referring to the “D” shape design. A chain shackle is more narrow than an anchor shackle, or bow shackle, and usually has a threaded pin or screw pin close. The smaller loop on d shackles is designed to take high, in-line loads. For loads requiring larger straps, it is recommended to use anchor shackles. Screw pin shackles are generally used in applications where quick and/or repeated connections and disconnections are necessary, as well as non-permanent applications. The bow and pin on these Green Pin® chain shackles are high tensile steel, Grade 6, quenched and tempered. They maintain 100% of their original WLL in temperatures from -4°F to 392°F. A hot-dipped galvanized finish provides extra durability against scratches and dings. In addition to our Van Beest shackles, we offer Crosby® shackles, and a large variety of shackles domestically from Chicago Hardware, as well as affordable import options. If you have any questions about which Green Pin® shackles are right for your application, or if you don't see what you're looking for, give us a call.
