Air & Lift Gear stocks the Shackles you need for your lifting job.

The D shackle (commonly seen when towing) connects the lifting device and the load to be lifted in a straight-line pull.

These shackles are often used for towing and are easily connected to the chains of your trailer’s. It is common for heavier trailers to have two chains which should be crossed to allow the trailer hitch to be caught in the X in the event the hitch jumps off the tow ball. The X should prevent the trailer hitch digging into the road.

The pin of the D shackle allows for easy connection to a variety of equipment.


The pin can be removed to slip straps, or looped rope through the shackle or, with the pin in place, attach hooks.
