Metal shackles are the standard choice for connecting slings, ropes, chains, and other equipment to loads or each other in lifting, pulling, or rigging operations. Each shackle has a body and a pin. D-style shackles, also known as chain shackles, are used to move large loads in a straight line because side and racking loads can distort them. Anchor shackles are used in applications where shackles will be frequently connected and removed.
