Comment on this model.

This accessory provides 42 diecast shackles in red and black.

The shackles go well with Manitowoc and Mammoet models.


The shackles come in unmarked re-sealable bags. 

There were no defects or missing parts on the review kit. 

Detail and Features

The accessory comprises diecast shackles with 24 rated at 55 tons, and 18 rated at 120 tons. 

These are high quality parts with working screw locking bolts.  However as they are diecast they will not bend so care has to be taken when using them.

They work well with lifting beams and other rigging equipment.

Quality and Price

The shackles are high quality and nicely painted, and are fair value.


These shackles work well and are a nice touch with other models in related colours.


The shackles were released in September 2016.
