What size slings do I need?

Longer slings are more effective at reducing rope drag than a quickdraw, but are also heavier and bulkier. Single-length slings (60cm/24 in.) are a useful length—roughly 2 or 3 times longer than most quickdraws; they’re a good length to wear over a shoulder or as an alpine quickdraw. Double-length slings (120cm/48 in.)

How do I choose a sling capacity?

Steps to determine necessary sling capacity:

  1. Determine the weight that the sling will be lifting (LW)
  2. Calculate the Tension Factor (TF)
  3. Lifting Weight (LW) x the Tension Factor (TF) = Minimum Sling Rating for the type of hitch that will be used.

What determines what type of sling you use?

Slings are made of a variety of materials. We determine what type of sling to use by the size and type of load, and the environmental conditions in the work area. For cranes and slings to perform properly, they have to be in top condition. So, good inspection and maintenance are especially important.
