Shackle inspection

GP Shackle inspection

Check for wear, damage, bent or elongation of the body or pin, spreading of the shackle legs also check to see if there is any damage to the threads.

Eccentric shackle loads

Correct / Incorrect loading

Correct / Incorrect loading

To prevent an angular lift with a shackle, pack the pin. This will centre the load preventing the legs from spreading and the shackle from failing

Symmetrical loading

Symmetrical Loading

Symmetrical Loading

Shackles symmetrically loaded with two leg slings having a maximum included angle of 120° can be utilized to full Working Load Limit (WLL). Only bolt type with cotter pin and screw pin shackles should be used for this application.

Rolling of the pin

Rolling of the pin

If the load shifts the sling can unscrew the shackle pin. For long-term applications or where the load can cause the pin to rotate, bolt type shackles with cotter pin should be used.

Mousing is a secondary securement method used to secure screw pin from rotation or loosening. An annealed

iron wire is looped through the hole in the collar of the pin and around the adjacent leg of shackle body with wire ends securely twisted together.
Multiple wraps are required for securement where the load may slide on the
shackle pin
