Types of Anchor Shackles

Here at RuggedTow, we carry both screw pin anchor shackles and safety bolt anchor shackles. The difference in screw pin anchor shackles and safety bolt is the way they are tightened. Screw pin anchor shackles are the most commonly used. The screw pin slides through one end of the clevis and screws in to the other side similar to a standard bolt. The pin is secured from turning with seizing wire. These anchor shackles are easier to remove and apply. Safety bolt anchor shackles are more secure and used to handle heavier applications. The pin is screwed through, and a bolt is fastened on the other side of the shackle and a cotter pin is slid through the hole.
