The shackle on the 50mm length has a groove at the base that allows it to be retained by a grub screw so it remains attached to the padlock when unlocked. With a key retaining feature also, this means that the padlock cannot be left unlocked at all - reminding the user to fasten it back into place before they can remove their keys.
The shackle on the 100mm version removes from the padlock body completely and cannot be amended to be retained. This is because the majority of uses for this model are on container lock boxes which are designed to be a tight fit to prevent access for attack and therefore the shackel needs to be fit as tightly as possible.
