  • Shackles are used in lifting operations and static systems as removable links to connect (steel) wire rope, chain and other fittings.
  • Screw pin shackles are used mainly for nonpermanent applications.
  • Safety bolt and fixed nut shackles are used for long-term or permanent applications or where the load may slide on the pin causing rotation of the pin.
  • Chain or dee shackles are mainly used on one-leg systems whereas anchor or bow shackles are mainly used on multi-leg systems.


  • Green Pin® offers a wide range of bow and dee shackles for a variety of applications.
  • The range stretches from WLL 0.33t to 3000t.
  • This provides our customers with a very extensive range to choose a shackle that suits their application best. Most of the shackles are directly available from stock.
  • Furthermore, shackles can be supplied to many standards such as the US Federal Specification RR-C-271, EN 13889, British Standard 3032, DIN 82101 etc.
  • Additionally we offer a wide range of general commercial shackles, which are not suitable for lifting but merely for fixing purposes.
  • Van Beest offers a wide range of other shackles to complement the Green Pin® assortment.


All Green Pin® shackles have a specific design for a specific application. Some examples are:

  • Green Pin Super® Shackles which are made out of grade 8 steel.
  • They are designed to be used in confined spaces.
  • The higher material strength is used to reduce the physical dimensions of the product whilst maintaining its WLL and functionality;
  • Green Pin Polar® Shackles are for use in extreme climatic conditions with material properties guaranteed up to temperatures of -60°C;
  • Green Pin Power Sling® Shackles are designed to provide a better radius to the sling it lifts. A bigger radius increases the life span of the sling significantly;
  • Another example of a functional design is a shackle pin with a square sunken hole. Because of the flat head there is less risk of the shackle getting caught in a net or a line.

These are all examples of highly functional designs, to optimize the use of the Green Pin® shackles in daily use.

Shackles used for lifting applications are generally marked with:

  • Working Load Limit - e.g. WLL 25 T
  • manufacturer’s symbol - e.g. GP
  • traceability code - e.g. HA indicating a particular batch
  • steel grade - e.g. 4, 6, 8
  • CE conformity code (Conformité Européenne) - CE

Green Pin® Shackles meet all relevant requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and its latest amendments.


Shackles supplied by Green Pin® can be hot dipped galvanized, electro-galvanized, painted or self colored, depending on the type of shackle and its application. You can find the finish of each type of shackle in the product section further on.
