Re: Does anything remove Sikaflex 291?

291 is a polyurethane. Mineral spirits works before it's cured. After cure I don't know of any solvent. BTW, it comes in black or white.

Re: Shackle security

Just don't snip the end off too short. Then use a pair of small, pointed nose pliers to bend the sharp end round and tuck it under the rest of the wire. Using thin wire makes it easier.
