Triple leg wire rope slings have three equal lengths of wire rope connected with a single oblong master link at the top for a design that provides excellent balance and improved load control. Also called 3 leg bridle wire rope slings or simply 3 leg cable slings, they’re traditionally fitted with eye hooks at the end of each length, but can be customized with different hardware as requested. The loops or “eyes” that connect the lengths to the master oblong are fitted with protective thimbles at the point of contact to reduce wear on the rope and extend the life of the sling.
As with all slings, the rated capacities of 3 leg wire rope slings will vary based on the pull angle/direction. The type of wire rope used will also create a variation in capacities and uses. We offer 3 leg wire rope slings in either a 6x19 EIPS wire rope or a 6x36 EIPS wire rope. An Independent Wire Rope Core (IWRC) resists crushing, making it an excellent choice for a variety of lift applications. All of our three leg wire rope slings feature a Flemish eye spliced with a carbon steel sleeve, for superior strength and rugged durability.

. How to calculate the length of a wire rope sling
Wire rope bridles are measured by the length of the sling leg plus the end hook. The length of the oblong master 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.
