45mm Tandem Galvanised Shackle hanger kits are suited to tandem trailers up to 3600kg. Use only on 8mm eye springs. (710mm eye to eye)
Spring lengths from 635mm to 710mm are suitable for this tandem hanger kit.
De-rating of 20% applies to slipper spring suspension only. Tandem shackle suspension is a load sharing suspension.
Important to note that the hangers be installed 25mm longer than the spring length.
Shock loading conditions can cause the shackle hangers installed greater than 735mm centres to hit the centre rocker bar.
Hangers installed closer than 735mm centres will cause the spring to lock onto the centre rocker and prevent load sharing.
