Type 4 EE Web Slings
Type 4 slings - also known as twisted eye slings - are similar to Type 3 slings except the eyes are turned 90° to form a better choker hitch. While Type 4, twisted eye web slings are recommended particularly for choker hitch applications, this type of eye also nests together better when used in a basket hitch. The lightweight material and flexibility of the twisted eye, Type 4 web sling allows the sling to be quickly and safely handled. A treated nylon sling stretches approximately 10% at rated capacity. Nylon’s extra stretch helps avoid shock loading. Nylon web slings should not be used around acids or bleaching agents. A treated polyester sling stretches approximately 7% at rated capacity. Polyester's lesser stretch makes load control easier by reducing bounce. Polyester web slings should not be used near aldehydes or ethers. Don't see the size you are looking for?
