A rated alloy recovery bow shaped shackle with screw pin (US Fed spec RR–C-271b) is used in a recovery situation to attach recovery straps, chains, cables or ropes as well as bridles and lanyards to professionally fitted recovery points.
The sizes suit a variety of vehicle weights so it is worth taking a selection.
Do not use commercial (unrated) or D shackles for vehicle recoveries. Watch the video clip below of a simulated 'failed' recovery which may occur if the incorrect shackle is used.
- On the rated shackle the pin and shackle body will be of a different diameter (pin is thicker).
- The body is embossed with the Work Load limit and batch number.
- The bow presents a larger inner working radius offering more space for attachment of straps and greater working angles when recovering.
- Always remember to slacken off a shackle pin by one half turn before recovering, this makes it easier to open afterwards.
