Re: How to remove pin from this shackle?

A number of knots, seizings, soft eyes will suit, as will re-doing the splice, depending on your skill. But without seeing the eye you have and knowing the type of halyard you are using, the types will vary. Shackling to shackles isn't the smartest option because it is metal-on-metal friction.

But the OPs question is about the bar which prevents the shackle tumbling. Despite the suggestions to punch it out, common for some shackles with a bar, it's not clear this bar is able to be punched out.

The images show only one hole. Punching that will just mash it. That suggests its been screwed in (good) or driven in once then the end pened out or welded in, which requires you to drill it out (pointless). Does the end in the whole have a hex/allen or driver type head?

This suggests the bar can be removed.

Re: How to remove pin from this shackle?

There are similar shackles available where the bar is secured with a ring and easily removed/replaced for halyards with spliced eyes. Maybe just trade in that one for one of those?

Is it removable without damaging the shackle? I hate to cut off my split eye and attach it with a bowline knot!
Thanks

Without seeing it in the flesh, it is hard to tell. The Wichard one we have is a peined over rod, so difficult to remove, but the one you link to almost looks like you could unscrew the rod. It is there to retain the shackle body on the line, so you are not left holding the pin and looking at the spot in the sea where the body just dropped

You can get such shackles with a pin retained by a small ring clip - not Wichard quality though!

Agree you don't want to be cutting a nice soft eye, so suggest seeing if you can get more details on the Wichard - a side image may tell you if you can't find one in your chandlery and it has to be ordered in for you.
