Mechanical Splice Cable Laid Body Wire Rope Sling
These smooth and very flexible slings are made from cut lengths of cable-laid fabric that is machine-formed by laying six wire ropes in a helical pattern around a core rope.
Flemish eye mechanical splices, secured by swaged metal sleeves, provide centerline pull at the eyes. They are more flexible, and the same capacity as single-part slings. Ideal for use as basket or choker hitches, where flexibility and ease of handling are essential, and cutting or abrasion is not a critical factor.
* Rated capacities basket hitch based on D/d ratio of 10 or greater.
Rated capacities based on pin diameter no larger than the natural eye width or no less than the nominal sling diameter.
Rated capacities based on design factor of 5.
Horizontal sling angles less than 30 degrees shall not be used.
