I found the below shackle at Speedex Sh Zayed road.
The rating looks fine. Its written WLL 4 3/4T.
But the design is not same as the one i saw in few forum posts.
This D shackle has a nut and bolt mechanism unlike the normal bolt with thread only.

Can some expert tell me if its good to purchase this?
Shackles and a 2T hydraulic jack are the only thing remaining for me to purchase.

Dear,

You need something as below. If you come to use it close the bolt to the end and then turn back 1 rotation before using it. You will find it at speedex as well.

The pin shackle is the right one ... the one you are shown is will be difficult to operate and will cut your fingers while doing the rescue
