Shackle links or straps are used to attach brackets and accessories, or to secure leaf springs to help make your trailer's suspension less rigid. On single-axle trailers, the rear of a double-eye spring is attached to the hanger via shackle links. On double-axle trailers, the rear of the first leaf spring and the front of the second leaf spring are attached via shackle links to the equalizer. The length of the shackle link will also affect how high the trailer will sit.

Galvanized Steel

Galvanized steel parts are hot-dipped in zinc after being stamped. This creates a coating that is typically 3 mil to 5 mil thick. This thick, all-around coating allows galvanized steel products to provide years of use without rusting or corroding.

Video Transcript for Review of CE Smith Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension - Spring Mounting Hardware - CE14103G

Today we're taking a look at a CE Smith Shackle Strap. This heavy-duty shackle strap or link helps to secure a loose spring or bracket on your trailer. It's a quarter inch galvanized steel construction. It's very sturdy, strong and durable. Does a great job at resisting rust and corrosion. Product is made in the USA.A few measurements that we want to go over with you really quick.

We're going to measure the distance between the holes right here, on center. That gives us a measurement of 2-3/4" overall. It measures about 4-1/4" by 1-1/4" by 1/4" thick. With this part number you get one shackle strap. The diameter of each hole is 9/16".

You only have about 2-3/4" of spacing, right here, again, center on center, when it comes to the hole separation.That's going to do it for today's look at the CE Smith Shackle Strap.

Excellent service. The products came early and everything was right. I'm sure the installation will be no problem.

Im pleased with the shackle straps, they give me a little more clearance with the new springs.

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!

- CE14103G

Very disappointed. The holes were poorly drilled and not 9/16. Very poor workmanship. etrailer sent me 4 new ones non galvanized. I reviewed those. Those are another story.

- CE14103G

It's a shackle strap, simple as that. One was a little sloppy on the galvanized coatings and I had to drill out the hole a little.

- CE14103G

Product was as described and galvanized coating seems pretty thick. Shipping was quick. Thank you.

- CE14103G

  • Locating Replacement Shackle Links for Keystone 5th Wheel Trailer Suspension
    In order to determine the correct replacement shackle links for your Keystone 5th Wheel Trailer, you will want to measure both the length and hole diameter on your existing parts.

  • Difference Between Galvanized Steel and Steel 2-3/4 Inch Shackle Strap
    The galvanized steel shackle strap # CE14103G is best suited for marine applications like boat trailers, due to the rust inhibiting properties provided by the galvanized coating. The plain steel shackle strap is better suited for non-marine usage. It could be used in a marine application, but it would be more susceptible to corrosion.

  • Solution for Trailer Axle that Continues to Pop Up
    To prevent your trailer's rear axle from continuing to pop up, a great place to start is by replacing the shackle links on your trailer. When the shackle links become worn and the holes elongate and stretch, the equalizer can move and cause the axle to "pop". When this happens while driving, typically it takes another jostle to the suspension to bring the axle back to the correct position. Shackle straps come in a variety of different lengths. One common length is 2-3/4 inches, such...

  • Tandem Trailer Leaf Spring Replacement
    Given what you've described I'd say your trailer is ready. You can definitely replace the 5 leaf spring with a 4 leaf solution as long as the capacity and the length is correct. That said we have 5 leaf options available too. When measuring your leaf springs you will want to measure from the center of one eye to the center of the other eye. Assuming that measurements is 25-1/4" the 5-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 6,000-lb Trailer Axles - 25-1/4" Long # SP-111275 would be a fine option. Included...
