Grommets

  • Forms a continuous loop sling
  • Rope-laid grommets also available

A grommet is a special type of sling which forms a continuous loop. Grommets either have a wire rope body or a body made up of six strands which are laid helically around a strand core. Either a hand-splice or a mechanical splice then forms an endless sling body. The minimum circumference of the sling is 96 times the grommet’s body diameter.

Rope-laid grommets are also available.
