How To Choose A D-SHACKLE
A D-shackle is a great option if you want to attach your chain to other objects. However, you will want to make sure you pick the right D-shackle for your chain.
When choosing a D-shackle, you will need to find out the inside width of the chain link. The pin of the D-shackle will need to be smaller than this width in order for it to fit through your chain link.
To find the inside width of the chain, simply subtract 2x the chain link diameter from the total width. For example, here is how you would calculate the inside width of an 8mm chain:
27mm (width) – 2 x 8mm (diameter) = 11mm (inside width)
In this example, the inside width of an 8mm chain is 11mm. This means you would want to get a D-shackle with a pin diameter (Ø) of 10mm or less. (An 11mm pin might be too tight a fit).
