Over the past few weeks and months, our Chattanooga, Tennessee Forge Operations has been working vigorously to improve product quality and deliveries. As you have seen with our In-Stock Guarantee, we are committed to manufacturing the highest quality products in the market, stocking over 155 of our most popular chain and forged rigging attachment products and guaranteeing to ship them in 3 business days.
We have some changes in progress which will result in even higher quality shackles. These changes include larger markings and a new shackle pin design.
Enhanced Identification Markings
The forged identification markings on our CM shackles will be the largest and most user-friendly on the market. Some of the benefits of the larger and more legible lettering are:
- Improved operator safety by reducing the risk of users misreading or not being able to read important size and WLL information.
- Reduction in replacement costs by decreasing necessary out-of-service issues due to worn and illegible identification.
- Easier identification of the product as a CM shackle with a larger CM logo forged into the side.
Over time, all CM shackles will have this improved marking.
We are also changing the shackle pins on our Screw Pin Anchor shackles (SPA) to provide more efficient thread fitting inside and outside of the shackle.
Both the Enhanced ID Markings and the New Pins will be running changes. Once we have depleted our existing shackle inventory, we will begin shipping these new shackles.
Keep your eyes open for these new shackles to hit the market soon!
