Sliding choker wire rope slings are manufactured with a hook that slides between the two eyes. This allows the operator to place one eye on the hook, which creates an adjustable hitch around a load.
Our wire rope sling with sliding choker features a thimbled eye on the sling end that attaches to the hook; this helps prevent abrasions and general wear on the sling eye, which lengthens the working lift of the sling. Our choker wire rope slings are also available with a latched choker hook by special order. How to Calculate the Length of a Wire Rope Sling
Wire rope bridles are measured by the length of the sling leg only. The length of the oblong master and eye hooks should not be included in the overall measurement.
Our slings are available in a variety of lengths, but can also be customized to any length you need. Give our sales team a call at 800-404-7068

Proof testing certificates can be supplied with your order for a nominal fee and must be requested at the time of order. Proof tests are performed in the factory where the sling is pull tested to 2x the vertical rating and officially recorded as proof for governing bodies. During the standard manufacturing process, only random slings during a production run are tested for compliance; in order to provide proof testing certificates with your order, every sling must be pull tested at the time of manufacture.
All of our wire rope lifting slings are inspected, certified and tagged with metal tags displaying capacity, care, and instructions.
