This type of shackle consists of a body and threaded pin or a body, screw with nut and a security cotter pin.

The screws and pins threaded with nut are produced in alloy steel.
Thanks to the use of the straight shackle, it is possible to attach polyester straps, wire ropes and chains to the loads that will be transported or moved. This equipment can still be used on the ends of wire ropes and their loops. The use of the shackle depends on the place where the application will be made, the loading of the material to be transported and the diameter of the wire rope.
