All Massload’s Load Shackles are made with the highest quality materials and manufactured through our specialized Quality Management System. Our in house engineering team will work with you to guarantee the development of a tension link that meets all your requirements.
Our Load Shackles are designed using the latest technology in 3D modeling and FEA analysis.
Custom Load Shackles are available and can be designed to meet industrial safety factors of up to 1000% overload protection. Millivolt output or signal conditioning utilizing a 4-20 mA output for PLC interface are available.
Support local manufacture with Massload’s rugged and reliable industrial grade Load Shackles. Available in T24 Wireless and wired configurations. Wired load shackles support mV/V, 4-20mA and 0-10V instrumentation.
Common applications include vehicle road rescue and towing, load lifting, boat lifting, and line tension measurement.
Massload’s load shackles are based on the industry standard Crosby bolt type shackle and come in capacities of 8.5 t, 12 t, 17 t, 25 t, 35 t. The shackles are equipped with wire lock pin for fast assembly and disassembly.
Massload’s shackle load pins are internally gauged and made from the highest quality traceable US or European Stainless Steel.
The Wireless Load Shackles feature a 2.4 Ghz wireless transmitters with an internal antenna enclosed within a rugged and virtually indestructible enclosure ensuring the antenna cannot be damaged by rough handling. The transmitter is powered by 2 AA batteries and goes into sleep mode when not in use, extending battery life to over 500 hours continuous use equivalent. The wireless signal is very robust providing an open field range up to 2000 ft at 3m height.
Our T24 Wireless Load Shackle transmits load to a variety of T24 wireless readout indicator options including the WL-T24-HS single channel handheld LCD display, the WL-T24-HA 12-channel handheld LCD display, the WL-T24-BSu base station for data capture on PC, and the WL-T24-AO1i for wirelessly interfacing to 4-20mA PLC input.
Massload’s Load Shackles are manufactured and calibrated in-house through our VCAP certified Quality Management System.
