From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

This article is based on canon information, but the article's name is conjectural, as there is currently no official name for the subject.
An activated energy shackle.

An energy shackle is a piece of Covenant technology used to physically restrain an individual.[1]


When activated, the energy shackle emits a blue ring of energy around one of the limbs of an individual, and levitates in a fixed position, making it extremely difficult to move. The shackle also has the ability to electrocute the restrained individual.[1]

Usage history[edit]

In October 2552, a pair of energy shackles were used to restrain Thel 'Vadamee while he was branded with the Mark of Shame.[1] Sali 'Nyon was bound by a set of energy shackles when he was captured by Jul 'Mdama's forces in July 2558.[2]
