Attached eye wide slings are the best sling choice when a cargo load is light and bulky, or when a wide sling is needed for extra stability. Type 9 slings are also excellent at providing protection for fragile items and finished surfaces. Also known as a widebody basket sling, type 9 slings have two eyes made of narrow 1-2" webbing attached to a single ply web body. The eyes are designed small to better accommodate small hoist hooks.
A type 9 sling is also known as a basket sling because it’s meant to be used only with basket hitches. For a widebody basket sling with greater lifting capacities, a type 8 continuous eye web sling
is a better choice. A custom web lifting sling may also be an option; please call our sales team at 800-660-3585 for more information.
Like all of our nylon lifting slings, our wide lift slings are made to industry standards in a heavy-duty, 9,800 lbs. per inch industrial webbing; each has a sewn-in tag listing lifting capacities. Please note:
The width measurement for a type 9 nylon basket sling reflects the width of the short side of the sling, not from eye to eye. The length measurement is determined by laying the sling flat and measuring from one end of the sling to the other- including the eyes.
