Trailer shackles

One of my shackles has flipped on my axel when I lifted them off the ground. Will they self correct or cause trouble? Jim

Jack it up and pry it back in the correct position.

Mine flipped recently while I had the front of the trailer dropped to the ground. To fix it, I just raised the front all the way up, with a couple of blocks, and it popped back into place. I was doing some work underneath the back which is why I had the front end lowered.
