This is the most common type of shackle, D shaped with a bolt or clevis pin across the opening for closure through the threaded section. They are primarily used to connect items such as cables or chains. Commercial shackles are not rated and are therefore not suited for vehicle recovery. Rated D-shackles should also be avoided in vehicle recovery as the rating pertains to a straight line pull.

Only use rated Alloy Recovery Bow Shackles during a recovery

Unrated 'd' shackles should not be used during a recovery as the shackle is not designed to withstand the stresses and angle of the forces during a recovery. Only use rated alloy recovery bow shackles.
