Price per piece.
A rated alloy Recovery Bow Shackle with screw pin (US Fed spec RR–C-271b) is used in a recovery situation to attach recovery straps, chains, cables or ropes as well as bridles and lanyards to professionally fitted recovery points.
Whenever you need to tow something, you need to ensure that you have the right kind of load bearing shackles. A shackle is a U-shaped piece of metal that is secured with a pin or bolt – or in some cases with a quick-release locking mechanism.
Shackles are the primary method of connecting rigging systems, and when you are talking about a bow shackle, you’re talking about the connecting piece that is required for connecting snatch straps to other recovery points.
The sizes suit a variety of vehicle weights so it is worth taking a selection.
- On the rated shackle, the pin and shackle body will be of a different diameter (pin is thicker).
- The body is embossed with the Work Load limit.
- The bow presents a larger inner working radius offering more space for attachment of straps and greater working angles when recovering.
- Always remember to slacken off a shackle pin by one half turn before recovering, this makes it easier to open afterwards.
Do not use commercial (unrated) or D shackles for vehicle recoveries.
Higher rated shackles are available upon request.
