||In the 1970’s, the trade name Green Pin® was launched to emphasize product quality, recognition and demand worldwide. Our Green Pin® shackles are manufactured in our production unit in Sliedrecht, The Netherlands. It is a genuine “Made in Holland” product.
Currently, not only shackles are sold under the name Green Pin®, but also other items, such as sockets, turnbuckles, wire rope clips, loadbinders, etc. Please see our Green Pin® catalogue for the complete program.
A genuine Green Pin® shackle can be identified by the green coloured pin and the marking on the shackle body and pin. Green Pin® and the colour green applied to the pin are both registered trade marks of Van Beest. The original Green Pin® shackles are marked with for instance:
