English term or phrase: kenter shackle
The context is:

"On placement of an order for a windlass, we will require a chain sample, including joining links and kenter shackles (if they are to be accomodated), so they may be matched to the chain gypsy prior to manufacture."

shackle = Schaekel but what about the "kenter"?
