Captive self-locking bow shackle with legendary strength and corrosion resistance.
Riggers have turned to Wichard shackles for their legendary quality, beautiful polish and smooth contours. Drop-forged 316L stainless steel construction is a perfect blend of strength and corrosion resistance and ensures that shape remains intact at loads that meet or exceed the deformation point. These bow shackles are ideal for applications that involve loads from multiple directions. At the thumb screw end, the elasticity of the shackle’s body locks the pin’s position into one or other of its small indentations. There is no need to worry about it accidentally coming loose due to vibrations. The pin is captive to prevent accidental loss. For a bow shackle that the pros have trusted for years, select a Wichard self-locking shackle.
