Remote Ground Release ShackleEGRS dimensionsblueyellow





This robust pile lifting shackle was contractor designed and developed over many years of site use and abuse. The use of these shackles compliments the “Feet on the Ground” approach to piling.


When used in conjunction with the Sheet Pile Threader, there is no need for site operatives to go above the safety of top frame level for interlocking sheet piles or releasing the lifting shackles. The shackles are suitable for lifting all steel piles up to 28mm thick and within the safe working load of the shackle. The shackle is stiffened to resist spreading of the forks when lifting at 90° to the axis of the pile. (See “Safety Check List”). When lifting sheet piles in pairs or individual piles weighing more than the Safe Working Load of the shackle, it is necessary to use multiple shackles in order to keep within the safe working load.


Pairs of shackles can be supplied mounted on a two legged steel wire rope sling. The advantage
being that the standard pair of shackles with lifting sling can be fitted to any pair of Larssen ‘U’ piles, Frodingham ‘Z’ piles, pipe or box piles. No additional parts or change of components is necessary.


The ring at the top of the sling can be hooked directly onto a standard crane hook block, ‘D’ shackle or fork anchor. Shackles can also be fitted onto a solid steel cross head according to customers requirements.
