An economical way of building up chain sets with absolute security, cheaper than the equivalent strength maillon and with a larger opening.
These shackles are forged and fitted with a shouldered bolt and security pin, not the common weaker threaded pin.
The nut is tightened up against the shoulder and the pin fitted then bent back on either side, allowing the pin to rotate in use while separately secured.
The independent rotation of the pin allows rappel rings to be connected via a shackle to chain or anchors whereas the threaded pin in a standard shackle can rotate undone while under load.
Manufactured from high quality European sourced stainless steel.
