Lifting & Rigging Hardware

The hardware you need for lifting and rigging consists of 2 main categories: Shackles and Carabiners. As Gear Experts® we pride ourselves in having the gear you need when you need it. Our selection of shackles and carabiners will help you stay compliant and get the job done.

Shackles

When picking your shackles there are a few key points to make sure that you pay attention to. The first point is country of manufacture. Many times it is required that you use a domestically made shackle due to manufacturing and testing standards. The diameter is important too. After all, a shackle that won’t fit isn’t of much use. Lastly, be sure to check the WLL or working load limit to ensure that your shackle can handle the load you plan on lifting.

Carabiners

The carabiners used for lifting might look and feel like regular carabiners, but their requirements are a bit different. They should only be used for material handling and never shock loaded which can happen if the carabiner was used for fall protection. Some material handling carabiners also have an ASME B30 stamp. ASME B30 outlines material handling standards for materials, rated loads, identification, and operating practices. But, it does not specifically address carabiners. For more information on the ASME B30 Standard click here to check out our detailed blog post. We’ve also got a free downloadable ASME B30 compliance poster in our Knowledge Base

It should be noted, there is a strong preference in the telecom industry to utilize shackles instead of rigging carabiners for material handling.
