Stainless steel Bow Shackles are a very stylish way to fit shade sails. Their curved design gives an added elegance to fitting a shade sail and are recommended for our Sundance Shade cloth Sail range which features an 'easy slide' corner which a D-Shackle will not fit over.  

Our Bow Shackles are all made from high quality AISI 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel.

A  Bow Shackle has two main paths, the body and the pin. The body has an anchor shape (bow) as opposed to a chain shape (commonly called a D-Shackle). Each body shape can be used, depending on the specific application, with a screw pin or bolt-type pin. 

In a straight pull load, our Bow Shackles match or exceed the rated loadings of our D-Shackles. However, when the load is pulled from the side the overall strength can be reduced if the load is not centred.

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

*It is the Purchasers’ responsibility to determine whether the testing procedure and breaking load is suitable for purpose. For shade sails with spans over 10 metres we recommend that the customer seek engineering advice regarding  specific loadings and the suitability of this product.

I bought a few different pieces to install my shade and was pretty impressed with the quality. Wasn't sure what size I needed but there's a lot of info on the page which is a pretty good idea. (Posted on 7/6/2018)

Headed into the shop with D shackles in mind, but for the shade I was putting up the staff switched me over to bow shackles which I had never considered.
Knowledgeable staff. (Posted on 7/14/2017)

Bow Shackles FAQ

What grade Stainless Steel are these Bow Shackles?

All our Bow Shackles are high quality AISI 316 Grade Stainless Steel.

How are Bow Shackles sized?

Bow Shackles are sized according to the diameter of the bow section rather than the pin size.  Never use a shackle if the distance between the eyes is greater than listed in the manufacturers tables.

How should the Bow Shackle be used?

Do not allow a Bow Shackle to be pulled at an angle as the legs may open. Pack the pin with washers to centre the shackle and ensure the load is pulling from the middle of the pin rather than letting the Bow Shackle tip and the load sit in the corner where the pin joins the bow. Do not use Bow Shackles with bent pins or worn and bent bows.
