Our selection of shackles includes a variety of sizes and metal treatments so you can get the perfect shackle for your lifting and rigging situation. We also have a variety of both domestic and imported shackles so you can ensure that you’re always in compliance.
When picking your shackles there are a few key points to make sure that you pay attention to. The first point is the country of manufacture. Many times it is required that you use a domestically made shackle due to manufacturing and testing standards. The diameter is important too. After all, a shackle that won’t fit isn’t of much use. Lastly, be sure to check the WLL or working load limit to ensure that your shackle can handle the load you plan on lifting.
