Stainless Steel Bow Shackle with Screw Pin
A stainless steel bow shackle with a screw pin is a type of shackle used in various applications, including rigging and marine environments. Here's what each of these components means:
- Stainless Steel: The shackle is made of stainless steel, a corrosion-resistant alloy known for its durability and ability to withstand harsh conditions, including exposure to moisture and saltwater. This makes it suitable for marine and outdoor applications where rust and corrosion can be a concern.
- Bow Shackle: A bow shackle, also known as an anchor shackle, has a rounded "bow" shape rather than a "D" shape. The rounded design allows it to handle a wider range of connections and load angles compared to D-shaped shackles, which are more limited in their use. Bow shackles are commonly used for general-purpose applications and are suitable for both single and multiple leg slings.
- Screw Pin: The screw pin refers to the mechanism used to secure the shackle. In a screw pin shackle, one end of the shackle's body has a threaded pin that can be unscrewed, allowing you to open the shackle and attach or detach it from the load or anchor point. Once attached, you can screw the pin back in to secure the shackle. This makes it easy to use and provides a secure connection.
Stainless steel bow shackles with screw pins are popular in applications where you need to connect or secure loads, lifting equipment, or objects while minimizing the risk of corrosion and ensuring a strong and reliable connection. They are commonly used in sailing and boating, rigging operations, as well as in construction and outdoor activities where resistance to environmental factors is important.
