A sling is an assembly designed to connect a load to a lifting device, so that the load may be lifted, turned, or moved. The Rated Capacity of a sling, is the maximum load in tons that it is designed to lift when used as prescribed under favorable working conditions. Rated Capacity is based on nominal wire rope breaking strength; splicing or end attachment efficiency; design factor; number of parts of rope in the sling; type of hitch (vertical, choker, or basket); angle of loading; and diameter of curvature around which the sling is bent.
There are four basic sling configurations, which meet most moving, lifting and turning requirements: (1) VERTICAL (Straight Pull); (2) BASKET HITCH: (3) CHOKER HITCH; and, (4) MULTIPLE LEG SLING (Bridle).
