For a long time, the lifting industry has been looking for a solution to prevent the dropping of equipment and components from heights. Dropped objects are a well-known safety hazard in the industry and have led to numerous accidents. Green Pin® now offers a unique solution to this problem: The Green Pin® Catch shackle BN prevents the accidental dropping of shackle bolts, nuts, cotter pins and even complete shackles, thereby preventing injuries or deaths.
These innovative shackles have an attachment point on each individual component to connect them to a lanyard. The lanyards can then be securely fastened to something or someone, for example to a tool-belt that the rigger is wearing. Also, ease of use is guaranteed: the disc on the nut that enables tethering rotates independently from the nut itself, thereby not coiling the attached lanyard.
The Green Pin® Catch Shackle is supplied without any wiring so every user can choose their preferred method of securing the products. The Green Pin® Catch Shackle BN has been developed in cooperation with DROPS, the non-profit organization that is focused exclusively on dropped object prevention.
In addition to the tethering options, the shackle offers a double safety (split pin and safety bolt) which prevents accidental unscrewing of the pin. Long-term durability is assured due to the galvanization. Of course, the Green Pin® Catch Shackle BN conforms to a wide range of certifications from class societies such as DNV.
The Green Pin® Catch Shackle BN is suitable for both one-leg and multi-leg systems and is available in a range with a working load limit from 2 up to 9.5 ton.
