Pitching Shackles

About Quick Release Pitching Shackles

Quick Release Shackles are designed specifically for pitching trench sheets and piles using appropriate lifting equipment. They must not be used for pile extraction Their purpose is to enable sheet piles to be lifted vertically into temporary guides and then released quickly and safely from ground level once the sheet or pile is secured.

The shackles have the advantage that the release mechanism is operated from ground level. This speeds up the positioning of the piles, saving time and money and increases safety on what has traditionally been a slow and laborious task.

  • For pitching trench sheet and light piles

  • Positive, spring-loaded pin mechanism secures the sheet
  • Device released from sheet at ground level via rope system
