Samson Offers New

Shear Pin Shackle-

Literature Available

Increased tanker size, exposed locations, and stronger mooring systems have created a need to protect mooring buoys or other installations from overloading. To meet this need, the Samson Shear

Pin Shackle is now available.

Up to the shear load it looks and works like any other shackle, but this shackle will shear at a predictable load. This will protect the entire system including the hawser, which is usually consid- ered the "weak link" in a moor- ing system.

The design of the Shear Pin

Shackle uses specially treated ma- terials and is arranged so that the load at shear is within a narrow band. For example: a unit rated at 350 tons will not shear below 320 tons, but 90 percent of the units will have sheared at or be- low 350 tons, and 100 percent by 360 tons.
