Handling Fee Reminding: $3.00 handling fee will be charged for ALL items from the same series, product code beginning with JEN- if you order less than $50.00.
These shackles take the place of S-hooks. They are stronger and some cities and parks are requiring their use instead of S-hooks. The shorter bolt is 3/8" ID and the longer bolt is 1.25" ID and holds up to 2100 lbs. This head makes removal because of vandalism more difficult.
**Installation, Safe Use and Maintenance Instructions**
IMPORTANT: To keep children safe from harm, follow these precautions and instructions when installing, using, or maintaining this playground equipment. You can see this PDF.
Installation: This H shackle has a special head with a pin to accept our H175 wrench. This head makes removal because of vandalism more difficult. Use the H175 to fasten chain on our washer seats, tire swing, swing hangers and chains. Make sure that if you are using shackles they are tightened snugly.
Safe Use: This is for children 5-12 year olds only. Not for Adults. Adults should supervise children at all times. Do not allow children to stand on or use unsafely. Do not allow it to be used if damaged.
Maintenance: Do the following to reduce the chance of serious injuries. Check monthly for cracks, rust, missing rivets, open S-hooks or evidence of vandalism such as cutting, metal showing through the material or bent seats from children standing on them. Tighten and lubricate all metallic moving parts per manufacturer's instructions. Check all protective coverings on nuts, bolts, pipes, edges, corners and all moving parts including swing hangers, swing seats, ropes, cables, chains and shackles. Replace as needed. Make sure there are no exposed footings, anchoring devices, rocks, roots, holes or any other obstacles in or around playground equipment. In high use areas these inspections should be done more frequently. Clean with mild soap and water when you do the monthly maintenance checks.
