Shackles can be used to join an anchor warp to an anchor chain and to connect the end link of an anchor chain to the anchor.
Anchoring shackles can be used to attach the anchor to the end of the chain – two shackles back to back is the tried and trusted method.
Back to Back refers to the crown of each shackle bearing against one another which results in both the pins taking the load correctly, one in the hole/slot on the anchor shank, the other in the end link of the chain.
Back to back shackles deliver excellent articulation which can be extremely beneficial for lateral anchoring loads.
Some anchor connectors still require the fitting of an anchor shackle to facilitate articulation
