Attach a 1/2" rope to Trip Lanyard (A) and Plunger Lanyard (B) of sufficient length to be handheld when load is lifted into position and secured so shackle can be released.
TO ATTACH SHACKLE: When the Plunger Lanyard (B) is retracted the Trip Lanyard (A) is spring-loaded and will be extended into the Plunger and will hold the Plunger in its retracted position. To release the Plunger, simply pull (retract) (A) and the Plunger will extend into position for lifting and (A) will extend behind (B) to lock the Plunger in its extended position.
TO RELEASE SHACKLE: Pull/retract (A) and hold in the retracted position until (B) is retracted, then release (A) and it will extend into (B) and keep the Plunger from re-extending.
BOTH ROPES ON (A) AND (B) MUST BE SEPARATE AND NOT TIED TOGETHER.
• A ground release shackle for sheet pile
• Simple plunger design allows safe and effective operation from the ground
• Individually proof-tested and serialized (certificates available upon request)
* User must not use ropes as tag lines under any circumstances! Full attention by the user must be given to both ropes attached to the Trip Lanyard (A) and the Plunger Lanyard (B) at all times to prevent them from becoming fouled and/or inadvertently activated
