What Are The Colors Of Towing Shackles?

Colorful Towing Shackles

Shackles are integral components when using tow straps, ensuring a secure connection between the vehicle and the tow point. Towing shackles, also known as bow shackles or anchor shackles, come in various colors. These colors are often used to indicate the working load limit (WLL) or to distinguish shackles for specific purposes or certifications. Additionally, […]

2 Important Tests Of Shackles

2 Important Tests Of Shackles

Today we’re going to talk about 2 important test of shackles, tensile test and salt spray test. 1st is tensile test, this test evaluates the strength of the shackle under tension andadopts the static tensile test method, connecting the shackle to the testing equipment and gradually increasing the tensile force until the shackle fractures or undergoes […]

Do You Know How To Customize Shackles?

Customized shackle

Customized shackle is very common in the industry to meet different needs, bow type shackles or dee type shackles are available by Sail Rigging. When we receive a new shackle sample, we will measure diameter and other dimension for shackles.

What Are Tensile Deformation Of Shackles?

Deformed Shackle

Tensile deformation of shackles refers to the changes in shape and dimensions that occur when a shackle is subjected to tensile (pulling) forces. Shackles, commonly used in rigging, lifting, and maritime applications, are designed to withstand substantial loads. However, when they are subjected to excessive tensile forces, they may experience elongation or stretching, which is […]

How To Control Quality Of Shackles?

tested shackles

In industries where safety and reliability are paramount, such as rigging and lifting operations, the quality of components like shackles cannot be compromised. Effective quality control measures are essential to ensure that shackles meet rigorous standards and performance requirements. Sail Rigging strictly control quality of every batch product, inspecting and test before shipment. In this […]

How to Conduct Magnetic Defect Test?

Magnetic Defect Detector

Magnetic defect testing stands as a cornerstone in quality assurance protocols, offering a reliable means of detecting flaws in ferromagnetic materials. By leveraging magnetic properties, this non-destructive testing method ensures structural integrity, regulatory compliance, and operational efficiency across diverse industries. Usually self color rigging hardware need to do magnetic defect testing, such as shackle, turnbuckle, […]

Why Working Load Limit is so important?

Bow Shackle

Working Load Limit is the maximum load , a shackle designed to handle under normal working conditions while maintaining a safety factor. Working Load Limit of Emphasize the need for understanding the Working Load Limit (WLL) to ensure safety and prevent accidents. ASME B30.26 rigging hardware requires shackle manufacturers to have identification and/or markings on the […]
