When your lifting systems are set up for long-term or permanent applications bolt-type shackles provide added security with its secure bolted installation. In cases where your load may put pressure on the pin, the bolt-type shackle is more resistant to rotation than the screw pin. We carry Crosby and Van Beest Green-Pin bolt-type shackles.

A shackle with a wide body design can significantly improve the life of a sling because the load distribution is spread across a wider section of the shackle. The bow radius of a wider body sling can increase the sling bearing surface by more than 50%. Wide body shackles can be used with web, round or wire slings. Titan offers both Crosby and Van Beest wide body shackles.
