Can be used in tie down, towing, suspension or lifting applications where the load is strictly applied in-line. Round pin shackles should never be used in rigging applications to gather multiple sling legs, or where side loading conditions may occur.
Used in Pick and Place* applications. For permanent or long-term installations, Crosby recommends the use of bolt type shackles. If you choose to disregard Crosby’s recommendation, the screw pin shall be secured from rotation or loosening screw pin shackles can be used for applications involving side-loading circumstances. Reduced working load limits are required for side-loading applications. While in service, do not allow the screw pin to be rotated by a live line, such as a choker application.
*Pick and Place application: Pick (move) a load and place as required. Tighten screw pin before each pick.
