April 6 - The Netherlands-headquartered lifting accessory manufacturer Van Beest has launched its range of Green Pin super screw pin shackles.

Van Beest says that the new shackles are useful for lifting jobs in which the assembly and disassembly of a load occurs frequently. The grade eight material used in the shackle range means that a higher working load limit (WLL) is achieved when compared to a standard shackle of the same size.

In order to reduce wear and increase the lifespan of the components that rest on the pin, the Green Pin super screw shackles have a chamber in the shackle eye that hides the screw thread.
