The 90 degree setting of the eyes on the reverse eye nylon sling prevents twisting when under load when using a basket hitch or choker hitch. Additionally, it can be used with vertical hitches, making them a versatile choice for a lift sling. The reverse eye design also works better than a typical eye & eye sling in a choker hitch.
The configuration 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 lift 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 eye length on the 4" wide sling is 12".
In addition to the 4" width, nylon reversed eye slings are also available in the following widths: 2"
, and 6"
. If you need a wider sling, a type 9 basket sling
or the type 8 continuous eye web sling
which come in widths up to 24" are a good choice. While they do have a wider body for increased stability, they can only be used with a basket hitch.
