A type 6 nylon lifting sling feature a reversed eye set at 90 degrees on each end. This design prevents twisting under load when used with a choker or basket hitch. The type 6 sling can also be used with a vertical hitch, so it’s an extremely economical choice. In comparison to a typical type 3 eye & eye sling, the type 6 lift sling works better, particularly in a choker hitch. 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 also features CORDURA® wear pads, which will protect the webbing from abrasions and cuts. (CORDURA® does not increase the sling’s strength, but it can extend the life of the strap.)
The reverse eye sling is available with either one ply or two plys; the eye length is 14"l. In addition to the 6" width, nylon reversed eye slings are also available in 2" width
, 3" width
, and a 4" width
. If you need a wider sling, check into a light duty cargo sling
or a wide body heavy duty basket
, as they both come in widths up to 24". While they do offer a wide body for increased stability, they can only be used with a basket hitch.
