Van Beest 5/8-inch Bolt-Type Shackle

Van Beest 5/8-inch Bolt-Type Shackle

High quality safety-bolt type shackle made from high tensile, Grade 6, quenched and tempered steel. Smooth bow eliminates sharp burrs which can cause serious damage to your line and spanset anchors. The 5/8" size is the perfect balance between strength, weight, and size. Fits up to 6 strands of spanset with plenty of room for your other rigging equipment as well.

This is the perfect shackle for when strength is a top priority. With a working load limit of over 6,000 lbf, you will always have a large margin of safety on any type of slackline you will rig. The distance between the eyes of the shackle is slightly larger than 1" (25mm), which makes this shackle ideal for anchoring 1" lines (with additional hardware - see 5/8" Shackle Line-Locker Kit for more info). A bomb-proof anchor for bomb-proof slacklines!

  • Bow and Pin made from high tensile steel, Grade 6, quenched and tempered

  • Acceptable temperates range from -20 degrees-Celsius up to +200 degrees-Celsius
