CHAIN SLINGS

HOW TO ORDER A CHAIN SLING

1. Determine the maximum load to be lifted.
2. Choose the proper type of chain sling (single, double, etc.), as dictated by the size, shape and weight of the load.
3. Estimate the approximate angle between a leg of the sling and the load during operation.
4. Select the proper attachment (hooks and master links) for your sling.
5. Determine the overall reach from bearing point on the master link to bearing point on attachment.
6. Refer to the Working Load Limit Chart and to your pre-determined angle of the type sling you have selected.
7. When placing your order be sure to give complete information as to size, reach and attachments required.

 

Note: Angle to the load on multiple leg slings will be 60° or greater as long as the distance between lifting eyes of the lifting load is not greater than reach shown on identification tag.
