The patented self-locking pin features a shackle body and indentations to accept the pin lugs. During the final tightening turns the lugs push up against the sprung body. When aligned with the indentations, the pin is prevented from turning unless force is applied by hand.
The hot drop-forged process provides increased strength and manufacturing consistency. Each shackle is CE marked in accordance with the Machines Directive 2006/42. Therefore, Wichard products can be used in lifting applications.
Each product displays the following information:
- Working Load Limit (WLL) = 5:1 safety factor of the break load
- CE marking
- Product origin
- Manufacturer’s logo
|Part||Pin Ø||L||A||B||D||Working load||Breaking Loading||WLL
Working Load (WL) = Static load at which the product will still function without excessive friction or wear or permanent deformation of components.
Breaking Load (BL) = Static load at which a major failure of one or more structural components or complete destruction of the product.
