   1. Self-locking elastic shackles
   2. Shackles that are connected to traverse by screw
The advantages of spring shackles in railways is safety and reliability, long fatigue life (more than 5 million cycles) and high axial load tolerance and they are easily used for installation or replacement of rail.
