Vertical HitchAlso know as the straight lift, is the most basic hitch. One end of the sling is connected to the lifting apparatus (hoist or crane) while the other end is connected to an attachment point on the load.
Basket HitchDoubling the sling (and also shortening it) will also double the working load limit capacity. When using the basket hitch more than one sling might be needed to endure load control.
Choke HitchLooping the sling within itself and create a choke on the load. This hitch allows for a more secure grab (load stability) but for a lesser capacity working load. The choker hitch is good for short loads but for better load control sometimes several slings are required to choke on both ends of the load for a more stability and load control. Always make sure the slings cannot slide across the load
- Make sure Tag is not missing and is always readable - OSHA requirement.
- Inspect before usage.
- To prevent damaging the sling you should avoid contact with protrusions during lifting, storing, or transport.
- Make sure there are no broken stitching, knots, abrasions, color fading, or cuts. If there are the sling must not be used and taken out of service.
- Red core yarn comes in each sling. It’s an additional aid to warn of sling damage. The red thread becomes exposed when the sling is worn or cut.
- Wipe down & store slings in dry cool place for longer life service.
