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.
A rated alloy recovery bow shaped 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.
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.
