The Strongest Shackle You Can Buy, Size for Size!
Unlike some of their logging shackles, Skookum has made their #263 shackle with a more common frame. Like most anchor shackles, it has a rounded bale and an eyed pin. Because it's made of alloy steel, the strength-to-size ratio is incredible and far exceeds that of a typical shackle. This makes it a popular choice for general construction, marine and municipal applications. This shackle allows a spud wrench (or marlin spike for loggers) to be passed through the eye and used as leverage for either tightening or loosening the pin.
