I’m looking to upgrade the D shackles on my Bailey V4. I’ve been looking at bolted D shackles with safety pins for extra security. 

Has anyone done this? Any recommendations please? The current ones are 40mm long and 30mm wide.

I also want to change the main carabiners too as it’s a second hand machine.

Thanks

Search on Wichard for the best SS shackles. These are load rated at 600 kg AND are self locking ie the extra clip is still added, but not the primary locking device. These are the ones used on my current Air Conception machine. I think many others use them as well.

Looks there’s only one UK distributor according to their website. Is that right? Where did you buy yours from please?
