Type 3 & 4 Eye & Eye

Type 3 (EE) straight eye and eye slings can be used in a vertical, choker or basket hitch. These slings have a straight eye at each end that makes it easier to remove them after the load is in place. Tapered eyes are supplied on slings with a web width of 3" or larger. Eye and eye slings will be supplied with T-3 eyes unless otherwise specified.

Type 4 (EE) twisted eye and eye slings are similar to Type 3 slings except the eyes are turned 90 degrees to the sling body. This allows for a smoother choker hitch and a better fit in a basket hitch. Tapered eyes are supplied on slings with a web width of 3" or larger.
