There are six different models of shackles to chose from. Size, work load and trademark
are permanently marked on all shackles. Loads are based on a safety factor of 6 to 1. When
tested, all shackles are pulled at a uniform rate of speed in a direct tension. All types of shackles
are available in a self-colored or hot-dipped galvanized finish. When ordering please specify the
size, finish and type of shackle. Other rust preventative coatings are available on a special basis.

Shackles meet Federal Specifications RRC-271d Type IV. Any deviation such as angular lifts, shock loads,
modification of the basic forging, etc. will result in drastically reduced maximum loads.
