Also commonly called a D-shackle due to its “D” shape, screw pin chain shackles are intended for use in straight line pulls or lifts only. Side and racking loads run the risk of twisting or bending a chain shackle.
These galvanized chain shackles are excellent for use with single leg web lifting slings such as nylon slings and polyester slings. When paired with chain, they provide a connecting link to connect to other hardware. It’s important to note that they should be used only with single leg slings, as slings with multiple legs could cause side loading conditions. The zinc oxide coating provides protection against typical corrosion and rust.
These turnbuckles are used to create tension in cables, ropes and chains by turning the body of the buckle to take up slack. Used with rope, twine, cables and like items in tensioning systems. Suitable for marine, outdoor or general applications.
Our Hook Eye Turnbuckles are made with quality in mind. Our heavy duty turnbuckles are made with a 5:1 safety rating with a 2:1 proof load test and made of galvanized steel. Galvanized steel turnbuckles have a thick galvanized coating (zinc) which gives the turn buckle added resistant properties. For the ultimate resistance to corrosives, try our stainless steel turnbuckles and other stainless steel hardware. With a hook that has a weaker break strength than an eye or jaw, the assembly has a weaker overall strength than a jaw jaw turnbuckle or eye eye turnbuckle. The hook simply allows for a faster connection of the rigging hardware.
Eye and Eye Turnbuckles are drop forged for added strength compared to a machined or precision cast turnbuckle. The drop forged process adds strength while the Type 316 stainless steel offers the highest level of corrosion protection. The turnbuckle eyes are elongated, similar to the Galvanized Eye and Eye Turnbuckle, for less stress on the eye and for easier attachment of other hardware. Our eye turnbuckles are US type and meet dimensions of ASTM specification F1145-92 Type 1, Class H.
Eye to Eye Turnbuckles are one of the most common steel turn buckles. Made of galvanized steel, these turnbuckles are formed to withstand the nastiest of corrosive environments. Our eye to eye turnbuckles have elongated eyes on each end for less stress on the eye and for easier connection of other rigging hardware. The body of the turnbuckle features a reverse thread on each end to allow for tightening/loosening by simply turning the body of the turn buckle. Meant for straight line pulls only, galvanized steel turnbuckles are a popular choice among the rigging industry and our heavy duty turnbuckles are made to impress. Coming in a variety of sizes from small turnbuckles to large turnbuckles, these eye & eye turnbuckles meet or exceed the performance requirements of ASTM F – 1145 (formerly Federal Specification FF-T-791).
Screw Pin Anchor/Chain Shackles allow quick and easy removal of the screw pin and can be useful in applications where the shackle is frequently removed, but not so much in applications where the pin is subject to torque or twisting.
Zinc-Plated Lag Thread Screw Eyes are made with steel strength and are designed to attach cables or rope to surfaces. For use with ropes or cables with the same load rating. Perfect for light duty applications.
Wire open-eye or hook bolts are intended for light duty applications such as hanging small plants or other objects, and wire guiding. These eye bolts are also referred to a bent or turned eye bolts. Do not use them for lifting. Turned eye bolts are manufactured from low carbon cold drawn steel wire and are supplied with NC rolled machine threads with one hex nut unassembled. Open eye bolts feature an open hook design that allows the user to easily hang and remove loads as needed.
Wire eye bolts are intended for light duty applications such as, tie-downs and wire guiding. These eye bolts are also referred to as bent or turned eye bolts. Do not use them for lifting. Turned eye bolts are manufactured from low carbon cold drawn steel wire and are supplied with NC rolled machine threads with one hex nut. Eye bolts feature a closed loop design that secures cables and chains in order to support the weight of heavy hanging objects such as plumbing pipes and wires.
