Proof-tested at 200 percent of its rated workload, every GRIPPER® Sling’s wide bearing surface improves load balance and gripping power. As it won’t kink or tangle in use like wire rope or chain slings, loads don’t shift or slip. The woven spiral construction eliminates the danger of sudden failure that can occur when synthetic sling core rots or a weak link in a chain sling.

Easy to rig in either a choke or basket hitch, the GRIPPER® Sling significantly reduces rigging and unhitching time, and often eliminates the need for two-legged slings or spreader bars.

Additional Available Features: Sling PVC coatings in black or clear and Handle stamping up to 10 digits.

Maintenance: In order to properly maintain your sling, frequently inspect and return for repair.
