- Chain or dee shackle safety pin (single data sheet “US Type dee / safety pin”)

The sizes are ranging from 3/16” up to 3,5” (WLL 120T). These US type shackles have a 6:1 safety factor as standard.
The shackle body is normally hot dip galvanized; the pins are conventionally painted (very small ones) or powder coated. The pins can be suppplied in any requested color.
The US Type shackles are produced out of forged and high tensile steel. This in combination with the in-house heat treatment of the manufacturer guarantees a stable quality and makes sure that all shackles reach the required minimum breaking strengths.
Because of producing the complete US Type shackles in only one company, there is any marking possible as per customer request. The regular markings include Size, CE, Batch Number and WLL. So if you require additional markings, please let us know.
