Jergens Introduces Shackle-Lok Shackle-Style Hoist RingMarch 1, 2012
Jergens, Inc. has announced the addition of Shackle-Lok, a shackle-style hoist ring. One hundred percent domestically manufactured, the Shackle-Lok is designed to combine the strength and safety of a hoist ring with the versatility of a shackle.
Available in a variety of inch and metric sizes, the Shackle-Lok has internal ball bearings within a tamper-resistant design that provides smooth 180-degree pivot and 360-degree swivel action under load. Shackle-Lok is suitable for lifting situations where conventional swivel or stationary hardware may be impractical to use. With a unique 3-piece design, Shackle-Lok is suitable for use in low-clearance OEM applications, general rigging applications and permanent mounting on dies, molds, fixtures and other heavy equipment.
Easy-to-remove anchor shackles are interchangeable, and the bolt can accommodate a variety of alternate styles. Magnetic particle inspected Shackle-Lok is CE-certified and conforms to ASME B30.26 and RR-C-271F standards. Designed to work with numerous thread sizes, Jergens can manufacture any straight thread size, pitch or length to meet specific lifting application requirements, the company said.
Shackle-Lok hoist rings can be equipped with Lift ID, Jergens' exclusive automated inspection and compliance system.
