Lifting shackles are devices used to connect the hoist sling to the load. D or Dee shackles, also known as straight or chain shackles, are designed for connecting two components only. Bow shackles or anchor type shackles, on the other hand, are capable of connecting multiple components. These shackles are secured either by screw pins or safety pins. Lifting shackles are commonly used in construction, mining, and manufacturing industries among others.
