Upgraded D-Shackle (Only) for the Torc Ground Anchor Series II, to be used in place of the standard shackle when installing the anchor.
The D-Shackle normally supplied with the Torc Ground Anchor is 20mm thick hardened steel. Now that we have the Protector 22mm Titan Chain, it is arguable that a 20mm thick shackle on the ground anchor could be a weak point, so we have produced an upgraded version.
This shackle is 22mm thick hardened steel on the exposed curved section, and 20mm thick on the straight piece that goes under the base plate to retain compatibility with the existing design base plate.
This shackle can be fitted in place of the standard shackle when installing a Torc ground anchor. It cannot be swapped after the anchor has been installed with the standard shackle! An upgrade option is available on the product listing for the Torc anchor itself, at lower cost than this item, which is an extra shackle.
