Anchor Shackle 1/4 SS Hex Head

Stainless steel anchor shackle designed for the job:

  • A flush hex head allows for smooth passage through the bow roller
  • A socket wrench or a crescent wrench could be easily used to open or close the pin even after many months of use.
  • A hole in the hex head is designed to safety wire the pin to prevent pin loosening.
  • Mantus boat anchor shackles are forged and use high quality 2205 Duplex stainless steel.

*These are manufacturer’s recommendations and often differ from one marine manufacturer to another. Our anchor chain shackles are strong enough to use with Hi Test Chain—just pick one size larger than the chain.
 *The working load limit called out on our anchor shackles is 1/6th of the breaking strength vs the ratio of 1/5th for the Grade A shackles. So, when sizing our shackles, it is more useful to compare the ultimate breaking strength of the shackle to that of the chain.
