Buy Online, via Phone, or Purchase Order

Item: Crosby Shackle - Standard - Theatrical - Anchor - Screw Pin Type (for frequent open/close) - Round Body - Working Load Limit: 6,500 lbs - For Chain Size: 5/8 inch

Manufacturer / Country of Origin: Crosby / USA

Application: These Crosby Theatrical Shackles are used for general purpose connections of slings, cables, and chains in overhead lifting applications where a solid black coloring is required. The shackle has a large round body for general purpose connections. Outfitted with a screw pin closure, these shackles are used in 'pick and place' applications that require frequent opening and closing.  This shackle can be used in applications involving side loading, however this reduces the working load limit. During use, assure that the pin is not allowed to rotate, as this may open the shackle.

Description: Made of all alloy steel construction with a flat black on powder coat finish - Close die forged - Quenched and tempered with alloy pins - Designed with a 6 to 1 design factor (theoretical reserve capability of working load limit) - Working Load Limit number forged into the steel

Material: Alloy steel - Body and pin are black powder coated

Quality: All Crosby Theatrical Screw Pin Anchor Shackles meet or exceed the requirements of ASME B30.26, which include identification, durability, design factor, proof load, and temperature requirements. 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. Meets the Federal specification RR-C-271F, Type A, Grade A, Class 2, except for those provisions required of the contractor. Approval and certification in accordance with ABS 2006 Steel vessel rules 1-1-17.7. Meets performance requirements of EN 13889:2003.

The Difference: Low quality lifting products can cause injury and damage. There are many look-a-like 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 shackle 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.

Availability: Shipping time is subject to change PER manufacture availabilty.

Industry Designation: Crosby manufactures different types of shackles. These Crosby shackles are called 'Industrial Screw Pin Anchor Shackles' or 'Industrial Screw Pin Dee Shackles'.
