'D' Type Joining Shackles

'D' Type Joining Shackles (Lugged)

‘D’ Type Joining Shackles – These are designed to allow connection between two studless end links of anchor chain.

Unlike the Kenter Link, ‘D’ Type Joining Shackles do not fit the gypsy. The ‘D’ lugged joining shackle is used extensively for joining the chain to the anchor in more modern vessels. In the past this type of shackle was used, as the Kenter lugless joining shackle is used today, in the joining of the shackle lengths of cable together. If it is to be used for this purpose, the rounded crown part of the shackle should always face forward, so that it does not foul the anchor when letting go. It should be noted that the anchor crown shackle and the ‘D’ joining shackle face the opposite way to all other ‘D’ joining shackles in the cable.
