These Crosby shackles also go above and beyond these standard safety requirements by including fatigue life, impact properties and material traceability, factors that are not required by ASME B30.26. *Note all shackles 25 tons and above are equipped with RFID - radio frequency I.D.
The difference: Low quality lifting products can cause injury and damage. There are many look-alike Crosby shackles that are often found at lower prices and are also often advertised to conform to the same safety standards (if at all). Be aware that it may refer to safety ratings in effect decades ago. So for example under the same safety standard a decade ago, a lifting shackles may be rated to 100% without proof load testing while today it may be 300% with proof load testing. Be assured that we only sell the highest quality lifting shackles and our advertised safety standards conform or exceed to the current ASME standards.
