Bow & Anchor Shackles

Anchor shackles, often called bow shackles, feature an O-shaped bow for use in multiple sling-leg rigging applications. Anchor Shackles feature a larger rounded bow than chain shackles and allow for angular loads to be applied, subject to the reduction in the working load limit (WLL) that corresponds to the angle deviation. Anchor shackles are frequently used in industrial, agricultural and marine applications. They are available with ears that accommodate screw pins, safety bolt pins or round pins, which save time when connecting chain, wire rope, or other rigging components. GL Huyett anchor shackles are available in 1045 carbon steel or 304 stainless. Hot dipped galvanized coating also available. Note that straight loads should be on the pin and angular loads should be on the bow.

  • Choose from screw pin or round pin for quick release applications
  • Choose a bolt pin connector for semi-permanent or overhead lifting applications
  • Easily attach to multiple chain, wire rope, sling, or other rigging components
  • Rounded bow allows for side loading (subject to WLL reduction)
  • 304 stainless steel or hot dipped galvanized carbon steel provide added corrosion detection
