These shackles are easy to use, reliable, and extremely strong.
If you are setting a more permanent rigging that does not need to be constantly opened and closed like a carabiner, we recommend using shackles.
We offer two types of shackles, the screw pin shackle and the snagless shackle. The screw pin shackle should be “moused off” with a zip tie and the snagless shackle should be used with a locking product such as Loctite.
Shackles can decrease the amount of height lost as opposed to rigging with carabiners. The Snagless shackle is ideal for connecting a lyra to a lyra rope or spanset as it has no protruding parts.

I use these shackles when i know i don’t need to take the point down. They aren’t as convenient as carabiners,but they take up less vertical height and Iove using them in my studio.
Nice Shackles. I used to pay over $19 for solid shackles at the marine supply near my studio so that we could get nice stainless steel shackles instead of the ugly forged steel ones you find in hardware stores – but once we found this site, we get all our shackles here! What a great price for a really fantastic product!
Solid shackles that do just what they are supposed to do. Also, I know it’s a little thing. But you know how ugly the galvanized steel shackles are (if you do any kind of rigging you do…) well these ones are really clean and pretty stainless steel. So much nicer. Just like the pictures you see. I totally prefer these just based on looks alone!
