Video Transcript for Review of ABS Fasteners Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension - Spring Mounting Hardware - 115208GALV

Jeff Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at Today, we're gonna take a look at this 3 1/8 inch long replacement shackle strap. Now this shackle strap will connect to your double eye leaf spring to your rear hanger of a single axis trailer. Or to the equalizer of a multi axle trailer. Now shackling the two components allows the necessary pivot of the spring for evenly distributed load.

And between the axles and a nice smooth ride for your trailer. This is a steel construction. It is heavy duty. Few spec on this. The length, when we say this is a 3 1/8 inch long strap, what we're measuring is from the center of this hole to the center of that hole.

So if we put our ruler on it, center to center, there's your 3 1/8 inch measurement. Overall length from end to end, is gonna be right at 4 3/8 inches. The width of it is right at 1 1/4 inches. Thickness of the strap is about 3/16 of an inch. The bolt hole diameter is 9/16 of an inch.

And this for a quantity of one shackle strap. But that should do it for the review on the 3 1/8 inch long replacement shackle strap..

Shackle link helps connect double-eye leaf spring to rear hanger or equalizer on trailer suspension systems. Shackling the 2 components together allows the necessary pivot of the springs. Measures 3-1/8" from center of hole to center of hole.


Shackles were just what I expected. Packaging was disappointing. Heavy package: 8 schackles, 8 bolts, 8 nuts, 8 bushings all in a brown enlelope, which couldn't hold the weight and tore open during shipping. Found half the bolts on the street near my mailbox. Luckily all parts are accounted for. Please box loose parts!


Straps seem to be good quality and fit just fine but came unpainted. I wasn't expecting them to be bare steel, but fortunately, I had a can of black Krylon. I'm only disappointed I had to delay the installation by about an hour to, clean, paint, and let dry. lost a star for no paint.


Exactly what I needed, several lengths available to fit many applications


Well made (looks like a stamping), fit well. No troubles with installation.


Very good experience fast shipping I will buy again


etrailer goes all the way for there customers. My item came damaged missing and with a call they are taking care of the problem thank e trailer for all your service


Thank you for the correct size item need now I'm just figuring out how to assemble and re attach.


Very good quality and fast delivery. I can't wait to install on my trailer. I will order again from etrailer. Thanks etrailer

It is working out fine. Trailer is level now. No wear on tires. Thanks etrailer.

One year later and still holding up well. Recently did a brake job and took the time to inspect the suspension work I did with etrailer's parts last Thanksgiving. Everything is in tip-top shape. I'd order from etrailer again because they make it easy to be certain you are getting the right parts.


This shacle strap is exactly the same as the part being replaced. These worked as promised. Check out the photo and notice how bad the old hanger was!


The shackles are very heavy-duty and the holes fit a 9/16" bolt perfectly. Unfortunately the galvanize finish was extremely rough and varied from no coverage to very thick lumps. There were also very sharp-pointed protrusions of galvanize. I stripped the galvanize off with diluted muriatic acid in about 25 minutes. I then painted the shackles a satin black and they look awesome against gold-colored cadmium plated bolts, washers, and nuts. I'm very happy with the shackles and would suggest that primer or black paint be an option to the galvanize.


Ordered springs and u-bolts for a trailer I was repairing. When the package came it was missing parts because of USPS machines damaged it! Emailed etrailer about it and received the parts in two days! What a surprise, so glad I was able to get trailer back up and running!!


Found product on line, called for specs and ordered. Product was shipped that day. Quality was excellent. I would order again from etrailer.

working very well as designed
Guy S - 05/25/2016


Fast delivery, product as described online. Used on a 1999 Carmate trailer. Works great!


Completely restored our 1987 8x 10 trailer, turned out great. I found all the required parts from etrailer. Shipping was fast. etrailer was excellent to deal with. Thanks etrailer, best regards


Excellent product, great and efficient service. At no fault of, the package sat in Columbus, Ohio Post Office where I live, for three days. UPS gave the package to the Post Office, then the package was delivered three days later. The UPS-USPS partnership slows down delivery by a few days.


Worked as advertised, good quality product. Shipping was fast as well and the folks at etrailer maintain great communication.


Great product and really easy to install. I changed all of the components under my trailer and it is riding better than before.



Worked as expected. Gave me a slight li ft.


Perfect fit for my Express boat axle, replaced Springs and axle kit, look forward to many years of service.


Exactly as described, shipped fast and well packed. These were hard to find in my area, but etrailer had all the ones I needed and at a good price. Thanks!


Great people to order from. Parts arrive very quickly and everything fits perfect and if there is a problem returns and exchanges are easy. Highly recommend etrailer.


Heavy Gauge, excellent Galvanized coverage, and it worked perfect on my Boat trailer


heavy duty and will work on my trailer


Got what I ordered, at a fair price, and the price was reasonable

Good price plus very fast shipping. Thats what counts

  • Galvanized Trailer Suspension Shackle Straps That Have Hole Spacing Close to 3-1/4-Inches Apart
    It sounds like what you need is Redline part # 115208GALV. This galvanized shackle strap measures 4-3/8 x 1-1/4 overall and has two 9/16-inch bolt holes whose centers are 3-1/8-inches apart. These are sold as a single unit so you'll want to order four.

  • Recommended Alignment Kit to Raise Trailer While Still Maintaining Proper Axle Load Weight Capacity
    Slightly longer than OEM shackle straps like the Replacement Shackle Strap - 3-1/8" Long - Galvanized # 115208GALV you asked the question from will not be a problem as long as the axle position isn't changed much. If you are adding an inch or so, it will impact the ride of your trailer as your axles are designed with a slight bow for load bearing that would be misaligned. If you are looking to raise your trailer, then you should really replace the hangers to keep your system operating...

  • What is the Finish on The Hanger Kit # APS1
    The Single-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Double-Eye Springs - 1-1/2" Front, 7/8" Rear # APS1 are bare metal and have the plug weld holes to keep them in place for a solid bead on sides. The shackle straps in this kit are galvanized and the replacement is # 115208GALV. The bolts are the Shackle Bolt with Locknut for Double-Eye Springs - 3" Long just like # 166081.

  • Will Shackle Straps Help Improve Trailer Ride
    Yes, using shackle straps will help improve the ride of your trailer, though not as much as getting the properly rated leaf springs, which you are already doing. Shackle straps will help because they are the link between your springs and what I assume is the hanger on a single axle boat trailer, and will allow a bit of movement in the system, helping minimize the rigidity in your trailer's ride. For a single axle trailer, shackle straps are generally 3-1/8" long (measured from center of...

  • Shackle Straps for the CE Smith 3-1/8
    We currently have two shackle straps that will fit the CE Smith U-Bolt part # CE15502A. For this you can choose from the Shackle Strap part # TRSL313 or part # 115208GALV. Both of these shackle straps have a bolt hole to bolt hole measurement of 3-1/8" with 9/16" diameter bolt holes. The above u-bolt has a 7/16" diameter bolt therefore the above shackles straps will work for you but the bolt holes will be slightly larger, 1/8" to be exact. The only real difference between the two shackle...

  • I Need Wet Bolts And Shackles For My 2016 Forest River Wildwood 28DBUD
    We will definitely have kits that will work for your trailer. In order for us to get the correct parts, you will have to take some measurements from your trailer. Unfortunately, there is not an universal size for shackles. You will need to measure the center to center distance on your shackle straps. If you measure your shackle straps and they measure 3-1/8", you will need the Replacement Shackle Strap - 3-1/8" Long, part # 115208GALV. You need to measure the wet bolts for the same reason....

  • Recommended Replacement Suspension Parts for 18 Foot Bass Buggy Pontoon Boat Trailer
    If the axle isn't bent from being overloaded (wear on outside of tire tread), then you're probably okay. If it's bent, you'd want to replace it. Since you don't know the axle capacity, we can make a pretty good guess if we know the bolt pattern of the wheel/hub as well as the inner and outer wheel bearing reference numbers. Knowing the axle capacity is important, so you can choose the proper replacement parts. We offer a few standard sized 2K and 3.5K axles. To recommend a replacement,...
