Ropes of sufficient length must be fixed to the pull rings of the ratchet belt to permit release of the shackle from a remote position.

With the release nut turned to open position and the indicator bar protruding, slide the shackle over the pile.

Align the locking pin over the lifting hole of the pile and while pressing the ratchet pawl down with the thumb of the one hand turn the release nut out of the shackle with the other hand until stop.

The pile may now be lifted.


When the pile is correctly positioned, the shackle is released by pulling the release ropes one way and then the other way five to six times.

The stroke of the pull is limited by the D-shackles in the ends of the toothed belt.

Recommendation: Fix small magnets

It can be a help to fix small magnets to the rope ends and place them on the pile. This will stretch the ropes along the pile and hinder them in flopping around.
