Is there a double sided shackle

Does this exist? A shackle with the pin in the middle and loops in both directions so I can attach lines to two sides, one that will go up, one down?

I've thought about trying two standard D shackles, one wide jaw, one narrow and fit the narrow jaw inside the wide and just use the one longer pin but haven't found a pair that would work.

I have found double swivel shackles that I could attach two lines to but the middle is fixed so no way to attach it to the eye that will hold it. Want something like this but with the removable pin in the middle. The ends can be fixed.

Re: Is there a double sided shackle

Why not two shackles the same size, one plain the other twisted?
Connect bow to bow with the pins facing out.
If needed secure them together with whatever.
Electrical tape come to mind.

Trying to visualize this. I have an eye on the end of a SS rod that I want to attach this to so I can run lines off the end in opposite directions. How would this pin to the eye and have an attachments opposite each other?

Re: Is there a double sided shackle

Well the replies here gave me some ideas for additional search terms which lead to even more ideas for searching that eventually lead to this. Will work just fine and only $25 each.

Re: Is there a double sided shackle

How about two soft shackles - one to join the two lines, the second to link the first to the eye on the rod? Or just use short oieces of line...

Thought about using lines but the installation will be subject to a lot of movement and chafe so SS seems a better option.
