• Safety factor : MBL equals 5 x WLL
• Temp. range: -20°C up to +200°C
• Finish : hot dipped galvanized
• Certification : 2.1 2.2 3.1 MTCa CE

The Green Pin BigMouth® Dee Shackle BN is ideal for use in situations where a lifting point is out of reach for a standard shackle. The BigMouth® Dee Shackle BN has a wider inside width and a longer inside length enabling you to connect the shackle to non-typical lifting points. Such lifting points are for example often found in the steel sheet pile wall industry. The lifting points on the pile walls are usually set at a depth at which only a Green Pin BigMouth® Dee Shackle BN can be used to complete the job. The Green Pin BigMouth® Dee Shackle BN is fitted with a safety bolt. Long-term durability is assured due to the galvanization of the Green Pin BigMouth® Dee Shackle BN. The shackle conforms to a range of certifications. The Green Pin BigMouth® Dee Shackle BN is suitable for both one-leg and multi-leg systems and is available in a range with a working load limit from 4.6 up to 15.5 ton.

It is required that shackles are regularly inspected and that the inspection should take place in accordance with the safety standards given in the country of use. This is required because the products in use may be affected by wear, misuse, overloading etc. with a consequence of deformation and alteration of the material structure. Inspection should take place at least every six months and even more frequently when the shackles are used in severe operating conditions.

Shackles should be inspected to ensure that:

  • all markings are legible;
  • the body and pin are both identifiable as being of the same size, type and make;
  • the threads of the pin and the body are undamaged;
  • for a safety bolt type shackle is used with the split cotter pin;
  • the body and the pin are not distorted or unduly worn;
  • the body and pin are free from nicks, gouges, cracks and corrosion;
  • shackles are not heat treated as this may affect their Working Load Limit;
  • the shackle is not modified, repaired or reshaped by welding, heating, machining or bending as this will affect the Working Load Limit;

Remove the shackle from service if:

  • all markings are not  clearly legible;
  • body and pin can not be identified as being from same size, type and make;
  • the threads of the pin and/or body are damaged;
  • for a safety bolt type shackle the split cotter pin is missing;
  • the body and/or pin is distorted or unduly worn, the maximum allowable wear is 10% of the original dimension;
  • the body and/or pin is not free from nicks, gouges, cracks or corrosion;
  • the shackle has been exposed to any heat treatment;
  • the shackle is modified, repaired or reshaped by welding, heating, machining or bending;

The Green Pin® brand finds its origin in 1922: that was the year Dirk van Beest (picture left) started to forge shackles that would later be branded Green Pin®. Immediately, customers across the globe recognized Green Pin® as an example of quality, giving the products worldwide recognition and demand. Green Pin® shackles are manufactured at our production unit in Sliedrecht, the Netherlands, making them a genuine ‘Made in Holland’ product.

In 2007, Van Beest acquired Forges de l'Eminée of France and took over the Excel® brand. In 2018, we decided to rebrand all Excel® products as Green Pin® to create a complete range of below the hook components. This means that Green Pin® represents more than just shackles – the brand also includes sockets, turnbuckles, wire rope clips, loadbinders and more. Our complete Green Pin® catalogue is available on our Green Pin®product site.

For example, most chain fittings are type-approved according to the German classification society DGUV.
