Five Oceans shackles are manufactured with great quality.
They are forged from tough steel and galvanized to resist the harsh marine environment.
To prevent accidental opening, always seize the shackle pin with safety wire. For increased strength, use one size larger than the chain, especially with High-Test chain (the pins will still fit).
IMPORTANT NOTICE: All of our Anchor and Docking products (like Windlasses, Anchors, Anchor Rodes, Anchor Rollers, Dock Lines, Mooring Accessories, Quicklinks, Chains, Shackles and Swivels) are recommended for use under normal weather and sea conditions. In case of extreme circumstances such as hurricanes, etc, the right precautions must be taken.
Five Oceans/Baron USA will not be responsible if the products are used under unusual weather and sea conditions.
We take enjoyment in the products we make and guarantee the buyer that all Five Oceans products are ready to handle the extreme conditions of the open sea or terrain. However, we also know things can happen that's why we've got you covered for a year.
