Stainless Long Dee Shackle


It is essential to use only high-quality shackles in any mooring assembly. EYE Marine recommend use of the following ‘screw pin’ types, BS 3032 Dee or Bow(manufactured to British Standard) - Green Pin Dee or Bow (manufactured to US Federal Specification) or the following ‘safety’ shackles Green Pin Dee or Bow(manufactured to US Federal Specification). We offer ‘Test Certificates’ with these types of shackle.

The best practice is to use a shackle that is at least one size larger than the chain.
