Shackles are an essential recovery item & you can never have too many of them. They are most commonly used to attach recovery straps, tree trunk protectors, winch extension straps & snatch blocks. The larger 4.7 tonne shackles are best suited to electric winch recovery situations. The most commonly used shackle is the "Bow" because its shape allows for bulky items to be easily attached. Shackles should only be used on vehicles fitted with rated points featuring closed eyelets.
Pro Tip : To avoid seizing the screw pin, it's always a good idea to back off about 1/2-Full turn after fully hand tightening. Shackle Pins can seize due to the force exerted during recovery operations

Always INSPECT the Tow Points and shackles before each use. Do not use if there are visible signs of damage or wear (including cracking or elongation). Do not exceed the Working Load Limit (WLL) of the shackle or Tow Points. Always STAY A SAFE DISTANCE away from the recovery area – at least 1.5 times the length of the recovery strap. Incorrect use of recovery equipment can result in serious injury or death.
Always ensure that adequate PREPARATION for the recovery, to minimise the strain on either vehicle, has been undertaken i.e. Digging, Rock placement etc. If you do not understand how to use this equipment safely or are uncomfortable with your abilities in the use of recovery equipment, please complete a course that specialises in four wheel driving & 4WD vehicle recovery.
Caution : Shackles can become a lethal missile if something should break or fail during a recovery. Ensure that all spectators are well clear & all recovery lines have a dampening blanket on them. NEVER load a shackle across its width because the load will be imposed on the threads. The force must be at right angles to the pin.
Warning : Always follow product instructions. It is important to correctly attach the recovery strap to the vehicle. A standard towball or tie-down point IS NOT designed to be used as a recovery point. It may result in the strap or vehicle components detaching from the vehicle & causing serious damage to a vehicle or person. Only attach a recovery strap to a suitably rated recovery point or device that is suitably rated for use with the strap. Incorrect use has previously resulted in serious injury & death.
