CROSBY : “THERE IS NO EQUAL”
Why do we only sell shackles Made in the USA?
We don’t believe you should compromise your winch recovery safety just to save a few bucks on low quality imported shackles. We have stress-tested numerous low quality imported shackles and are amazed in the wide variation of material yield points and ultimate breaking strengths. This is why 99% of imported shackles are not certified to be used in critical overhead/crane lifting operations.
The recreational offroad industry is full of low quality imported shackles due to their low cost. This limits the locations to purchase USA made shackles to only your local rigging supply store. We have partnered with the Crosby Group to offer their quality shackles in our durable UV stable powder coated finishes. Each shackle is first powder coated with an epoxy-based powder coating for superior corrosion resistance, then powder coated in a polyester-based material for UV stability.
NOTE ABOUT SHACKLE FINISHES: Factor 55 sources 100% USA Made drop-forged, shackles from Crosby USA. These shackles can sometimes have small blemishes after their powder coating. These blemishes do not affect the shackle’s ability to outperform low-quality imported shackles in any way. These are a tool. A life safety tool to be used confidently with your recovery rigging. If you have a show build or simply looking for shackles to be used for display, these may not be the shackles for you. If you do, you can leave us a note at checkout and we will do our best to accommodate you.
These shackles are meant for work under the harshest conditions. Certified, Tested, and Made in the USA.
