Stainless steel Extended D-Shackles are a proven way to fit shade sails. The body of the shackle is fitted over the ring of the shade sail and the shackle pin is fitted into the eyebolt or turnbuckle.

Our D-Exteded D Shackles are all made from high quality AISI 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel.

A  D-Shackle has two main paths, the body and the pin. The body has an U-shape with a screw-in pin.

Match the loading of your Shackle with the loading of your chain, turnbuckle and/or eyebolt. In a situation where you are using a Hook-eye turnbuckle with the D-shackle through the eyebolt, it is important that the D-Shackles’ BL exceed that of the Turnbuckle. 

A good tip is to tie a galvanised wire around the shackle pin to ensure that it doesn't work loose over time.



 D Shackles













*BL= Breaking Load. It is the Purchasers’ responsibility to determine whether the testing procedure and breaking load is suitable for purpose.


Extended D Shackles play a useful role when attaching mid-points of shade sails directly to the attachment point. We stock M8 shackles with a total length 72mm.


Different Types of Shackles


Various types of shackles for attaching shade sails

There are many different styles of shackles to get the job done.  D-shackles are perhaps the most common but you may like to consider other styles such as;

Extended D-Shackles which are suitable for direct mid-point attachments

Bow Shackles which give a very pleasing finish

Twist Shackles which are suitable when the eyebolt is vertical and the shade sail ring is horizontal.  

Spring Hooks are suitable to smaller shade sail fittings where the shade sail may need to be removed frequently. 


Final Comments

Extended D-Shackles are a proven way to attach your shade sail to the eyebolt and are ideal for use with Hook-Eye Turnbuckles.
