Arthur Beale Says
We recommend these "Bolt Type" shackles for securing chain to anchors and for any underwater mooring arrangement when it may not be possible to carry out regular inspections. The advantage of the "Bolt Type" shackle is the pin can rotate freely without becoming undone. The split pin will ensure total security. This type of shackle is often called an "Anchor Shackle".
Choose screw pin shackles when the shackle needs frequent removing and attaching and choose bolt type shackle for more permanent arrangements especially when inspection is difficult.
This do not preclude to need for regular inspections. Lifting operations should only be carried out by a suitably competent and qualified person.
