  • CE Smith

This shackle strap helps you to mount a leaf spring, bracket or accessory on your trailer. It is designed to accept a 9/16" diameter shackle bolt or U-bolt. Made of corrosion-resistant galvanized steel.


Features:

  • Heavy-duty shackle link helps to secure a leaf spring or bracket on your trailer
  • 1/4" Galvanized steel construction is sturdy and resists corrosion
  • Made in USA


Specs:

  • Length: 2-3/4" from center of 1 hole to center of the other hole
  • Overall dimensions: 4-1/4" long x 1-1/4" wide x 1/4" tall
  • Quantity: 1 shackle strap
  • Diameter of bolt holes (each): 9/16"
  • Spacing of mounting holes: 2-3/4" apart on center


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.

Send an email to customer service for assistance with getting the proper parts, they actually called me at 8:00 p.m. to discuss this. That's what I call customer service. I'd highly recommend the trailer to anyone! I can't wait to place my next order. Justin was my representative at etrailer he guided me through the entire process. Awesome service thank you Justin!

Great product. Quality is solid.



by:

The parts looked good.



by:

As others have pointed out, the shackles will not fit 9/16" bolts out of the box. Had to drill out the holes on all (4) shackles purchased.



by:

Parts arrived very fast! William was a pleasure to deal with and knows his product!



by:

Bolts wouldn’t fit in holes of the shackles. I had to file them out to make them work



by:

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.



by:

The holes were too small for the bolts, so I redrilled with a 9/16" bit and all was good.



by:

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.



by:

The items were quick to ship. Appears to be good quality and were as described. My trailer is back on the road. Will buy from them again.



by:

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.



by:

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!



by:

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



by:

Fit perfect on my trailer.



by:

Worked well and top notch parts



by:

Not much to say, it's a flat piece of steel with two holes. It came the right size and fit



by:

Worked great. Great quality. Would definitely order again.



by:

Delivered as promised. Shipping cost less than gas to find ,



by:

Great Product, better than I expected.



by:

Just what I needed to complete the job.

  • Best Option For 20-1/2 Inch Double Eye Leaf Springs For Boat Trailer
    We do have leaf springs that will work for you. Since leaf springs elongate over time you actually want ones that are a bit shorter than what you have now, and for your boat trailer we have dacromet leaf springs that measure 20-3/8 inches, which is perfect for your application: - 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 2,000-lb Trailer Axles - 20-3/8" Long - Dacromet # e53SR The # e53SR has a dacromet finish with a 700 hour salt spray rating which is precisely what you are looking for.

  • 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.

  • Shackle, Bushing, and Wet Bolt for Shackle Length of 2-3/4 inches
    We have shackle straps that are 2-3/4 inches in length like the part # CE14103G but this isn't one of the heavy duty kits. For a bronze bushing you'd want the part # D014-077-00. Then for a wet bolt you could use the part # 126B2.

  • 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 # e34SR would be a fine option. Included...

  • 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 as...

  • 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. Unfortunately, trailer manufacturers do not typically keep record of smaller parts like suspension components that were installed at the factory. Finding a replacement that matches the dimensions on your current shackle is the best and most accurate method. I have attached a link that will take you to our available...
