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.
The recovery safety lanyard is attached to the kinetic energy recovery rope or snatch strap, to prevent any parts (e.g. shackle, recovery point, snatch rope or strap) from flying off in the event of a failure during recovery.
SKU:Recovery safety lanyard
One of the above photos, shows the Recovery Safety Lanyard fused to the shackle, indicating the extreme forces that are applied during a recovery. The Recovery Safety Lanyard prevented the shackle from 'whipping' back and hitting a vehicle or bystander.
Watch the videos below of a simulated failed recovery without a Recovery Safety Lanyard. Using a Recovery Safety Lanyard (on both ends of the recovery) will prevent the snatch strap or rope from flying back.
