Product Overview

A solid shackle that has stood the test of time.

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. Ideal for securing hardware to pad eyes this D shackle can also be used for countless other applications. 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 NOT captive to and allows access to the complete width of the opening. For a twisted D shackle that the pros have trusted for years, select a Wichard self-locking shackle.
