THE CROSBY GROUP has determined the above listed shackles 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.
By use of the Production Identification Code (PIC) symbols appearing on the product, we have determined the 7/8” 6.5t shackles with PIC 5VJ shown on the bow may have this condition. See below image showing the position of the PIC on the bow. No other sizes or PICs are part of this Important Safety Notice.
