Shackle Suspension Swivel
Super Strong (Rated to 26kN)
User maintainable grease port
This unique modular design provides two (2) removable shackles with different dimensions to give you a huge range of connection options.
Rated to 26kN
(26,000KG or 57,320lb)*
Each eye unit is textile friendly and connects to high performance swivel specifically designed for torsion management.. making this delightful little device every riggers dreams.
The anodised finish offers the swivel an enhanced life expectancy and prevents corrosion.
Shackle uses 4mm and 2mm Allen keys to ensure secure locking.
*Important: kN is actually a measurement of force, not a measurement of weight. A 'Kilo Newton' is 1,000 newtons of force, and 1kg exhorts up to 9.8kg of force in free fall. To put this into context, if you are rigging with a blissfully light bunny of 40kg, should she manage to fall, your suspension point could be shocked with up to 392kg of force or 3.92kN.
This is why rigging equipment that specifies even a relatively high loading should be avoided. A 10mm steel ring that is capable of holding a static 350kg (770lb) only requires 38kg (85lb) of weight to create a force that would exceed such a rings load bearing capacity.
