Commercial shackles are the type usually available from chandlery shops. Being manufactured from low grade steel with threads that are pressed they are unsuitable for any application that is either critical or involves lifting.
Commercial shackles are easily identified by the pin and body material being manufactured from the same diameter, they look bright and shiny with their electro-galvanised finish but BEWARE!
These shackles are available from within our comprehensive range and are mainly supplied to our agricultural and fencing customers.
Claims are made that there are some high quality Commercial Shackles - we have yet to see one.
