Why Choose Hercules SLR Swivel Hoist Rings
Swivel hoist rings, also known as swivel eye bolts, are pieces of rigging hardware used to create lifting points on items. Their function is similar to that of regular eye bolts but with one key difference; swivel hoist rings are designed to pivot and/or swivel up to 360° to accommodate angular lifting forces without any reduction in capacity. In contrast, the working load limits of regular eye bolts are significantly reduced if they’re used in angular lifts.
Swivel hoist rings are stronger than regular eye bolts, with maximum load capacities ranging anywhere from 800 lbs. to 250,000 lbs. They’re commonly used to lift large, bulky, or oddly-shaped items like motors, dies, sheet metal, or shipping containers.
Swivel hoist rings are also useful when an item is going to be flipped or turned during a lift.
It is important to note that, since swivel hoist rings have more moving parts than regular eye bolts, use and inspection is slightly more complicated. Users need a torque wrench to ensure that swivel hoist rings are properly fastened to the load.
