Here is a neat leg shackle. Looks like it was for securing a person to a fixed object. Then again, this can be something that has nothing to do with being a leg shackle. But as you can see, there is a notch so that the chain would not chafe against the leg, so it was made to lock around something.

You are looking at a Leg Iron that has been Used. This Leg Iron looks as if it has been around for a long time. The item is 33" long and the chain is 26" long, the ring is 3 1/8" round, the shackle has a 2 3/4" opening, and the chain is 5 /16" thick. This appears to have a chain that would go through the iron ring and the leg iron on the ankle as seen in the old chain gangs. It weighs 3 3/4 lbs. It is a very interesting item to have.... - eBay (18 June 2010)

This padlock had a high bid of $109.50 (Plus $4.95 Shipping).
