The anchor shackle (item number 131318) is used to connect chain to rope. Item number 131182 is a grab hook with a clevis pin. Item number 131296 is a pair of rope clamps.

The last two articles, the double clevis (item number 131317) and the quick links (item number 131173) are both used with chain. The double clevis attaches chain to chain. The quick links will fasten chain to chain or accessories to chain in permanent or temporary applications.
