Video Transcript for Redline Trailer Suspension 18-11GALV Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're taking a look at a two and one quarter inch long shackle strap. Now this shackle strap connects a double wide leaf spring to a rear hanger for single axle trailers or to an equalizer for multi axle trailers. It allows necessary pivot of the springs for an evenly distributed load between axles and a smooth ride for the trailer. We're looking at a galvanized steel construction. It's a nice heavy duty design and corrosion resistant. This is ideal for use on boat and snowmobile trailers.

One shackle strap is included with this part number. Taking a measurement real quick of the length. Again I measured from center on center of the mouth hole, that's where we get the two and one quarter inch long measurement from. Edge to edge it measures about three and a half inches long. Overall width is an inch and a quarter and the bolt holes have a diameter of nine 16ths of an inch.

That's gonna do it for today's look at the two and one quarter inch long shackle strap.

Two out of four arrived stuck together as in bonded together (I assume during the galvanizing process). Tried chiseling them apart with no luck. Bolt holes state 9/16 inch but I tried a 9/16 inch bolt I order won't and it won't fit. Tried a stainless steel 9/16 inch bolt and even worse as it would not even get to the spline. Absolute garbage and I wish I never ordered them.

I can have these replaced for you. Please watch for an email to let you know when they have shipped.


Other than the parts taking a month to process, once they were gathered and packaged, they were delivered within 2 days! I replaced both sides with new 3-leaf double eye springs, 4 shackle straps, 6 shackle bolts, 2 Dexter U-bolt plates, and 2 U-bolts. They were really easy to replace and I did it quickly. Looks great, gonna take her out soon.


The right part for the job. I love the way retailer has video describing the part with measurements. This works really great for them so that customers are not returning items because they ordered the wrong part but even better for me. Nothing worse then waiting for a part, finally getting it and finding you need to send it back and reorder another, then wait some more for the right part to arrive. This part was 1st sent using the USPS. It took 3 weeks for it to get delivered. Once I received the package, it was empty. It looked like someone had opened it and Stolen the parts. Justin and Carol sent me a new part Express mail through UPS at no additional cost to me. This was going above and beyond to satisfy your customer. I would recommend etrailer again and again. Shipping is a far cry from another company I will not mention, but at least you know you are getting the right part.


I have not been able to use parts as UPS lost one entire shipment, damaged another shipment and etrailer left some parts out of the replacement shipment. I want to replace all the items on my trailer together in one day.

Anyways, your company has been good about fixing the issues.

I hope UPS pays for the damage and lost shipments.


these galvanized shackles have a bur around each hole that required removal with a drill before the bolt would slide through. Not bad if you have t he tools however they are not going to work right outta the box.

The spring were excellent and a welcomed upgrade


I have been a repeat customer of etrailer. I like their service and good prices. I also like their depiction of items with measurements so you can tell exactly what you are getting. Few sites document as well as these people.


Could be a little heavier for my application (12,000 pound boat on trailer); but, I got what I ordered!


A simple purchase that fits exactly and matches the description on the etrailer website. Even though I am in the business and have my own wholesale accounts, etrailer is often as cheap or cheaper and the information on the website is excellent. I wish my own wholesalers did as well on their websites and were as rapid with their deliveries.

Excellent shackles galvanized corrosion resistant and stronger than regular steel


Will serve the purpose but holes needed filing a bit for bolts to slide through


Ordered on a Thursday before 5pm. Paid 3 day shipping. Figured worst case Wednesday delivery with the holiday. Got Thursday which did me no good. Products are good service sucked this time.


Although these were galvanized, the coating made the holes less than they were supposed to be, and had to be drilled out


These are a little over galvanized takes some effort to seat


Perfect; thanks


Priced less than competitors. I especially like your product videos and the ability to submit questions online. Thanks for the great service.


all worked as promised and good quality


Awesome .....worked as it was supposed to work......

  • 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.

  • Availability Of 2-1/4" Long Shackle Strap That Is 1/4" Thick
    The Replacement Standard Shackle Link - 2-1/4" Long - Zinc - Qty 1 # LC122487 you were looking at are 3/16" thick. Instead you will need the Replacement Shackle Strap - 2-1/4" Long # 18-11GALV which are still 2-1/4" long but have the 1/4" thickness you are wanting. I included videos for both of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Replacement Shackle Straps For 1999 Ranger Boat Trailer With Tandem Axles
    On your 1999 Ranger boat trailer with tandem axles, I recommend the Replacement Shackle Link with Bolts for Dexter Trailer Suspension Kits # 018-026-05. If instead you want to piece together your system, I recommend using the Locknut - 9/16" Diameter # TRFA916DLNZ, never fail bushings # LC279684, and galvanized strap # 18-11GALV. If you want to use the regular wet bolts, you can use # 126B2. If you want a complete basic kit, you can use the Tandem-Axle Trailer Equalizer Kit for 1-3/4"...

  • Trailer Suspension Kit and 6 Inch Long Equalizers for Tandem Axles and Double Eye Springs
    Suspension kit # APT4 for tandem axles with double eye springs has 6-1/4 inch long equalizers so it is a possible option for you. Kit # AP233-H248 uses 5-3/4 inch long equalizers. But if you have to have equalizer # TREQ310 then the individual parts will have to be pieced together since there isn't a kit with that equalizer. If you go that route then you would also need: 8 of # 18-11GALV 14 of # 166081 1 of # H248 (or other hangers, see link)

  • Equalizer, Shackle and Bolt Recommendation for 8 by 14 foot Trailer
    Sounds like you are in need of a shackle kit to attach you leaf springs to the hangers on your trailer. The closest equalizer we have is the part # TREQ356 which has a distance of 6-1/8 inches between bolt holes left to right and 2-12 inches vertically. For bolts you would want the # 126B2. You would need 14 of these. For shackles part # 18-11GALV. You would need 8 of these.

  • Trailer Suspension Kit Recommendation for Tandem Trailer Similar to APT5 but With 4.25 inch Hangers
    Since we don't have the exact kit you need you'd have to piece the kit together that you need. For hangers you'd want the pat # E4139 which is 4-1/4 inches tall like you mentioned needing. For 2-1/4 inch long shackle straps you'd then want the part # 18-11GALV. For the equalizers # TREQE1. And then for bolts # 126B2.

  • Replacement Suspension Parts for a 2003 Jayco Quest 19' Travel Trailer
    Thank you for all of the helpful information! According to what you sent me I believe your 2003 Jayco Quest has dual 3,500 lb axle so that's what the leaf springs will be rated for. - Leaf Spring # e54SR - Shackle # 18-11GALV - Equalizer # TREQ310 - Wet Bolt # 126B2 All of these parts are sold as single units so you'll need to adjust the quantity as needed.
