5/8″ 3.25 Ton Galvanized Screw Pin Shackle
The 5/8″ 3.25 Ton Galvanized Screw Pin Shackle is hot dipped galvanized per ASTM A153 standards. Features a heat-treated screw pin for securement. Manufactured out of forged steel then galvanized. Designed frequent removal. Permanently marked with size and working load limit (WLL), in tons. Designed to lift up to 3.25 tons of weight.
Screw pin shackles (also known as a screw pin bow shackle) are designed to offer the security of a strong connection with the ease of a quick-release pin. The bow shape has the ability to handle a wider variety of connections and multi-dimensional pulling. Chain shackles (also called D shackles) have a more narrow profile and are meant to be used for straight-line pulls.
The screw pin mechanism makes screw pin anchor shackles a good choice for temporary lifting jobs or those that require frequent connects and disconnects because the quick-release pin action is faster to attach and detach than a shackle with a round pin.
