Lifting Shackles are a connecting link used to join the item or product being lifted with a lifting device such as hoist hook or sling. There are two main types:
- “D” Shackles or Dee Shackles
- Bow Shackles
The shackle is fixed to the lifting object by removing the pin, passing the pin through the object and then re-fixing. There are two main types of pin fixing mechanism:
- Screw Pin – where the pin screws into the body of the shackle like bolt into a nut.
- Safety pin – where the pin passes through the body of the shackle and is locked into place by either a split pin or nut c/w split pin.
Capacities of 0.3 to 150 tonnes available.
All our shackles come identified with a serial or batch number and all slings and lifting equipment or accessories supplied by Granada come complete with a valid test certificate.
Granada carry a small range of regularly supplied products and spares in stock but due to the very large and diverse range of products we offer cannot carry a full stock of all items at all times. Any items non-stock can be made to order very quickly and through our local network of suppliers.
Shackles are classified as a “lifting accessory” and are covered by LOLER regulations. All slings should be thoroughly examined by a competent person at periods not exceeding 6 months.
