Size, working load limit, and trademark are permanently marked on all shackles listed on this page. Loads are based on a safety factor of 6 to 1. When tested all shackles are pulled at a uniform rate of speed in direct tension. (Any deviations such as angular lifts, shock loads, modification of the basic forging, etc., will result in drastically reduced working load limits.)

Can you purchase screw inshackle pins separately?
Sorry don't know
The manufacturer does sell pins independently, but you would have to call one of our sales associates at (800) 497-0010 and place a special order for these. Depending on your shackle size and quantity, it may end up being cost prohibitive.

Not that I'm aware of.
What size shackle is maximum for use inside the 2 1/2" tube of a Taylor made mooring ball?
Use a Tay-33025 2 1/2" collar and a shackle to fit the chain probably a 3/8 or 1/2" shackle

What size shackle would I need from the mooring ball to the mooring pendant I have a 40 ft Bristol sloop sailboat? Thank you Ray
The shackle strength should match or exceed the chain strength.
What size anchor shackle do you recommend for Windlass Grade 30 BBB 3/8" dia. ACCO chain with a working load limit of 2650 lbs.?
The answer is actually quite simple. Use the largest shackle size in which the pin of the shackle will fit through the chain link. The reason is that anchor shackles are the weak link in a chain rode. For 3/8" BBB that would probably be a 7/16" shackle.
Peter,Thank you for your quick and informative reply. Now I feel I can order the correct size shackles with confidence. Are the anchor shackles Jamestown Distributors displays with the red pin made by Crosby? Thanks,Joel
