Something which confines the legs or arms so as to prevent their free motion; specifically, a ring or band inclosing the ankle or wrist, and fastened to a similar shackle on the other leg or arm, or to something else, by a chain or a strap; a gyve; a fetter.
A link or loop, as in a chain, fitted with a movable bolt, so that the parts can be separated, or the loop removed; a clevis.
To tie or confine the limbs of, so as to prevent free motion; to bind with shackles; to fetter; to chain.
To join by a link or chain, as railroad cars.
A U-shaped metal fastener with a pin across its open end, used for attaching various sails and rigging
a U-shaped piece of stainless steel with eyes in the ends, closed by a shackle pin.
for recovery, it's the "U" shaped device with a screwable pin across the open top that results in a "D" shape so that the two ends of a strap can be securely attached from which the hook of winch cable can be attached as an anchor point
a traditional unit of length used for measuring the lengths of nautical cables and chains, especially anchor chains. Anchor chains are formed by using shackles to join short lengths of chain. When the anchor is dropped and the chain runs out, a seaman counting the number of shackles can report the total length of chain deployed. The size of the unit therefore varied somewhat, depending on the length of the short chains used. In Britain, the unit became standardized in the 16th century at 12.5 fathoms (75 feet or 22.86 meters). In 1949, the Royal Navy adopted a length of 15 fathoms, which is 90 feet or 27.432 meters; this brought the British shackle in line with the U.S. unit, which is usually called the shot.
A U-shaped metal connector with apin or threaded bolt through the ends. AKA "clevis".
a U-shaped metal fitting used as a connection for line, cable, or chain and which has a pin secured through its end by a nut cotterpin, or screw threads.
Threaded rods to which the hoist cables are socketed and which bolt to the hitch plate and the counterweight.
a U-shaped bar; the open end can be passed through chain links and closed with a bar
restrain with fetters
a Bermudian or rigging, usually small, very simple rig requires more ballast
an iron 'U' formed into a 'D' by means of a bolt or pin which screws in place through the ends, or 'lugs', of the 'U'
a U-Shaped piece of metal with a pin that goes through and screws in
Used for connecting rigging hardware together and is the main stay of rigging. Comes in various capacities ranging from 0.5Ton to 5Ton. The pin is screwed into the body of the shackle. Some pins can be locked using a nut and split pin for added security. Submitted by Piers from London, UK.
A U-shaped iron with a pin used for securing sails to stays or ropes to enable easy removal.
1. a metallic U-shaped round bar with eyes at each end; a pin can either be inserted through an eye and screwed into the other eye, or goes through both eyes and locked with a nut arrangement at one end; used for connecting purposes; 2. equivalent to one length of anchor chain ie 15 fathoms
A small U-shaped fitting often used to join the thimble in an eye splice to the fitting. The open end is connected by a screw pin. (A snap shackle has a spring loaded pin.)
A "U" shaped connector with a pin or bolt across the open end.

When the anchor is dropped and the chain runs out, a seaman counting the number of shackles can report the total length of chain deployed. The size of the unit therefore varied, depending on the length of the short chains used. In modern times, the standard length is 15 fathoms, which is 90 feet or 27.432 meters.

A “U” or anchor-shaped fitting with pin.
A "U" shaped fitting with pin Turnbuckle - Device attached to wire rope for making limited adjustments in length. It consists of a barrel and right and left hand threaded bolts
A "U"-shaped link with openable pin for connecting or attaching various components.
A u-shaped piece of metal secured with a pin or bolt across the opening, or a hinged metal loop secured with a quick-release locking pin mechanism.
A U-shaped fitting closed with a pin and used to secure sails to lines or fittings, and lines to fittings.
A U-shaped metal fitting with a cross pin or clevis pin that fits across the opening of the U as a closure.
a U-shaped fitting with a pin across the open ends, the pin sometimes being threaded at one end and sometimes held in place with a cotter pin, or both
A metal U-shaped connector that attaches to other fittings with the use of a pin that is inserted through the arms of the U.
