Crosby Easy-Loc V2 Improves Shackle Bolt Securement For Critical Lifts

Crosby’s latest design, the Crosby Easy-Loc V2, is aimed at changing and improving the approach to shackle bolt securement for critical lifts. The Easy-Loc V2 features a robust 316 stainless steel design that resists corrosion. In addition to being 40 percent lighter than traditional securement methods, the design doesn’t require cotter pins or tools, and it reduces install and release time by up to 90 percent.

For further enhancement to the Easy-Loc V2 bolt securement system, Crosby released a wide grip handle, ergonomically designed with the end user in mind, reducing potential lifting hazards such as pinch points and bolt coiling. The new handle assists in upping efficiency in the installation and removal of shackle bolts with simple rigging and handling points, as well as a wide opening grip. The wide grip handle is a one-size-fits-all, oversized handle to enable easy access for any hand size.
