Campbell®, a premier material handling brand from Apex Tool Group and the makers of quality chains, blocks, clamps and fittings, today announced the expansion of its Alloy Anchor Shackle product line to include 22 mid-to-large size screw-pin and bolt-type shackles. Legacy shackles have been updated with a new innovative design and more than a dozen new sizes have been added to the Campbell Alloy Shackle line.
The new design removes all markings from the top of the shackle bow to prevent fraying of synthetic slings, which are widely used in the heavy construction, oil and gas, and marine and mining industries. The mandated lettering is now strategically placed on the sides of the shackle, making it easier for users to see the markings in the field. The angle between markings provides a quick visual guide for approximating the load angle for double and single leg slings. The radial draft geometry of the shackle ear increases the cross-sectional area for greater strength, while improving fit and function between the pin and shackle body. The new shackles are also fully CE compliant and include the CE marking, showing they have met European Union safety, health, and environmental protection requirements.
“Our anchor shackle line extension fills a void in the marketplace,” said Matthew Currin, Campbell product manager. “We conducted extensive field research, which provided insight into the needs of our customers and led to the improved design and breadth of our enhanced Alloy Shackle Line. The new features and benefits combined with our expanded offering put Campbell in a class by itself – providing unmatched value for our customers.”
All shackles are comprised of drop forged alloy steel and heat treated alloy pins for superior strength and performance. The Screw Pin Anchor Shackles are available in sizes ranging from 3/8” through 2”, while the Bolt Type Anchor Shackle line encompasses sizes from 3/8” through 2-1/2.
The Anchor Shackles also utilize a new Thermadep paint process on the pins and bolts, which creates a more attractive and durable finish than standard powder coating.
Made in the USA, the new Campbell Anchor Shackles offer unprecedented strength and durability, which have become synonymous with the Campbell brand.
