The type 6 reverse eye nylon sling features eyes set at 90 degrees, which prevents twisting when using a basket or choker hitch under load. It can also be used with a vertical hitch, making it an economical and versatile choice in lift slings. The reverse eye configuration also works better than a typical eye & eye sling in a choker hitch.
The design of the reversed eye sling also features a body covered in CORDURA® wear pads to withstand cuts and abrasions. While CORDURA® will not increase the strength of the sling, it can extend the life of the strap. The configuration also lets you reverse the eyes, so the other side can be used as a second wearing surface, essentially doubling the strap’s service life.
The reverse eye sling is available with either one ply or two plys; the eye length is 10" on the 2" wide model. In addition to the 2" width, nylon reversed eye slings are also available in a 3" width
, 4" width
, and a 6" width
. If you need a wider sling, we suggest either the light duty cargo basket
or the continuous eye wide heavy duty cargo sling
which come many widths, up to 24" wide. They offer a wider body for stability; however, they can only be used in basket hitches.
Nylon reversed sling with a flat eye (also known as a type 7 nylon lifting sling) are also available by calling our sales team at 800-404-7068
