Our reverse eye nylon sling is a versatile sling as it can be used in a choker, basket or vertical hitch. Because the reversed eye on each end stand at 90° angles from the body, they are an excellent sling for use with choker and basket hitches because the eyes prevent twisting while under load. The reverse eye sling also works better than a typical eye & eye sling
in a choker hitch.
The reverse eye web sling also features CORDURA® wear pads to provide protection against abrasions, tears and cuts. It’s important to note that the wear pads will not increase the sling’s strength; it can extend the life of the webbing. 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; each has an eye length of 11". In addition to the 3" width, nylon reversed eye slings are also available in 2"
, and 6"
widths. If you need a wider sling, a type 9 basket sling
or the type 8 continuous eye web sling
may be a suitable choices as they are available in several width options, all the way up to 24". While they do offer a wider body for stability, 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
