Quad leg wire rope slings are comprised of four lengths of wire rope that are connected at the top with a single oblong master link, resulting in a design that provides excellent load balance and control. Also known in the industry as 4 leg bridle wire rope slings or simply 4 leg cable slings, they are traditionally made with latched eye hooks at the end of each rope length, but each leg can be customized with different hardware as needed. We've added thimbles to the “eyes” or loops that connect the lengths to the oblong, to offer protection at the point of contact, thereby extending the life of the sling. All of our four leg wire rope slings feature a flemish eye splice and carbon steel sleeve, for superior use of rope capacity.
Rated capacities of 4 leg wire rope slings will vary widely based on the angle/direction of the pull in the lift. The type of wire rope will also vary its uses and capacities. We offer 4 leg wire slings in both a 6x19 EIPS configuration and a 6x36 EIPS configuration; all feature an Independent Wire Rope Core (IWRC) for resistance, even in harsh environments.

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.
