Shackles are used in lifting operations as removable links to connect wire rope, chain and other fittings. Screw pin shackles are used mainly for non-permanent applications. Safety bolt shackles are used for long-term or permanent applications or where the load may slide on the pin causing rotation of the pin.
The Dee Shackle is narrower than the Bow Shackle. The smaller loop is to take high loads in line. Side and racking loads may twist or bend a Dee Shackle.
