QRP Introduces Stainless Steel Shackle Pins for Heavy-Lifting Applications

QRP, Inc. introduces a line of shackle pins offering increased tensile strength to satisfy the most demanding heavy-lifting applications. These shackle pins are manufactured from stainless steel (except for their aluminum button) to promote high corrosion resistance in the harshest environments.

Among noteworthy features, the shackles can pivot when unobstructed to move 90º on both sides of vertical to correspond with application dynamics. Full visibility of a contrasting color groove on these pins indicates pin status as "fully locked" to promote safety in use. The latest design features a red button allowing for easy identification and serving as a caution in activation.

The shackle pins are body hardened to 180/210 KSI or ASTM 2759/3. They are available with shank diameter ranges from ¼" (handling up to 2,000 lbs. maximum load) to 5/8" (accommodating up to 7,000 lbs. maximum load).

QRP, Inc., a PEM® company, has been a leading manufacturer of quick release pins, lanyards, latches, and adjustable-diameter fastener products for more than 30 years.
