The Crosby Group has determined the shackles listed below may have a condition that can reduce the ultimate load capacity from the published catalog values. The shackle bow may have a previously undetected defect, and continued use may result in loss of load, property damage, severe injury, or death.
Crosby issued a statement saying users should identify all ⅞” 6.5t shackles with PIC 5VJ (located on the shackle), remove from service and arrange for return and replacement. For more information contact Safety Notice Technical Support at 1-800-772-1500.
