Unidentified recovery kit - ideas?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,


I bought these the other day as they seemed too tasty to turn down. The problem is I have no idea what they are for. They're certainly bloody heavy. Does anyone have any ideas?




I've posted here as I think they are recovery items but maybe not...


If they are the thing you have been looking for since the dawn of time then let me know.

Thanks Richard,


So, effectively they're a double-ended shackle? I cannot think how many times I've needed one of those so unless someone really needs them to complete some CES they'll be going on the WLF!:tup::

Correct, I used them mainly to connect eye of winch rope to load cell.

They are indeed plate shackles....had my fingers inbetween those a few times !!


Used in hundreds of examples when connecting a casualty & / or two pieces of recovery kit together & when making up a layout for winching.





At over 12" long they're probably (could be) from a Cent ARV CES.
