Galvanised Shackles - Certified Green Pin

Green Pin Shackles feature a hot dip galvanised body and a zinc plated pin. The pin is zinc plated to make it easier to paint with the Van Beest trademark Green colour.

Green pin certified shackles are much stronger than standard galvanised shackles due to a narrower jaw width and thicker pin diameter.

Manufactured in the Netherlands by Van Beest to EN13889 with a 6:1 safety factor.

Each shackle is supplied with a certificate of conformity.
