The Green Pin® Shortening Clutch with Lock is a grade 10 shortening clutch with locking pin. The shortening clutch is an essential part of chain slings, used to shorten the length of a chain leg and prevents instability of the load. The clutch compared to the shortening hook makes a straight pull possible. This shortening clutch is available with a locking system, designed to prevent accidental disengagement of the chain.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs
Where can I find the DGUV Type Approval?

DGUV Type Approval
Van Beest puts great emphasis on the quality of products. Recently, we have renewed our DGUV Type Approvals for many of our products. This allows us to H-stamp the components with our unique H number (H94).

DGUV (Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung / German Social Accident Insurance) is the umbrella association of the accident insurance institutions for the industrial and public sectors, a leading certification association in Europe.

The test procedure includes verification of materials, verification of the dimensions on individual samples, tensile tests, fatigue tests and some specific tests such as a bending test, a latch lock test and a latch strength test. The results are compared to the specifications mentioned in the EN 1677 norm. With this comprehensive testing procedure and certification of both chain and components, Van Beest supplies the highest quality products that contribute to a safe working environment.
