ARB D-Shackle is 1” dia. This is the Grand-pa of Shackles. One big monster. Photo shows comparison between small D-Shackle and the 8.5 ton D-Shackle. I used to think this shackle was too big until I started using them. They are so much easier to use in heavy mud, cold weather and stressful winch conditions. Much easier to work with and weave straps in and out of. You will always find at least 4 of the 8.5 ton shackles in my ole Mountain Storm. I can’t stress enough how you should keep a mininum of 4 or more of the Tie Shackles in your Cruiser. You will need them on tree straps, snatch straps, pulley blocks, etc. A very important part of your recovery equipment.
ARB Winch recovery equipment is made from the best materials available and tested under the most extreme conditions in Australia. You can’t find a better quality product.Outback tuff!
