All shackles have been tested with twice the safe working load and are delivered with certificate.

Installation

  • With the pin in retracted position and indicator bar protruding, slide the shackle over the sheet pile.
  • Align the shackle pin over the lifting hole and strike indicator bar to release the retaining mechanism.
  • Place the safety ring over the barrel assembly to safeguard against unintentional pull of wire (release).
  • With the pile in vertical position, secure the release rope and pitch the pile.


Release

  • When the pile is correctly positioned, whip the release rope away from the pile.
  • Pull firmly the release rope to retract the pin. The locking mechanism will hold it in the re­tracted position. This is confirmed by the indicator bar protruding from the barrel assembly.
