(206) 762-3700 Wire Rope Slings Single Part Body Mechanical Splice Eyes are formed using the flemish eye splice. Ends are secured by pressing a metal sleeve over the ends of the strands of the splice. Pull is directly along the centerline of rope and eye. Gives most efficient use of rope capacity and is economical.

www.rasmussenco.com Wire Rope Slings Single Part Body Mechanically Spliced Slings Rated Capacity for two-legged bridles, whether used as chokers or with hooks or other end fixtures, is affected by rigging angles, the same as straight slings in basket hitches. Note reduction in rated capacity as legs spread to wider lifting connections. Multi-legged bridles – with two, three or four straight legs – are offered with plain eyes, thimble eyes, open or closed sockets, shackles and tumbuckles. If required, rings or alloy oblong links can be supplied rather than the pear shaped links shown. Rated capacities for 3 & 4 leg bridle slings are based on equal leg slings with the sling angle being the smallest angle measured between any sling leg and the horizontal plane of the load. For other applications, consult our Fabricated Products Engineering Department.SAFETY LATCHES ARE AVAILABLE IF REQUIRED. * Rated Capacities Basket Hitch based on D/d ratio of 25. **Working Load Limit Rated Capacities based on pin diameter no larger than natural eye width or less than the nominal sling diameter.

If a load is hanging free, the normal choke angle is approximately 135 degrees. When the angle is less than 135 degrees an adjustment in the sling rated capacity must be made. Choker hitches at angles greater than 135 degrees are not recommended since they are unstable. Extreme care should be taken to determine the angle of choke as accurately as possible. In controlled tests, where the angle was less than 120 degrees, the sling body always failed at the point of choke when pulled to destruction. Allowance for this phenomenon must be made anytime a choker hitch is used to shift, turn or control a load, or when the pull is against the choke in a multi-leg lift. 3
