All of our slings are made to order with a standard lead time of 1-3 days for assembly prior to shipping.
A type 9 attached eye wide sling is an excellent choice for bulky, yet light cargo, when a wider sling is needed for extra stability; or when protection is required for delicate, finished or fragile surfaces. Also known as extra wide basket slings, type 9 slings have narrow eyes made of 1" or 2" webbing attached to a single ply webbing sling body. The eyes are designed to be extra narrow to accommodate smaller hooks.
Type 9 slings are also known as cargo basket slings or wide cargo slings because they are designed only for use with basket hitches. If you need a wide nylon lifting strap with a higher capacity, see our category of type 8 continuous eye web sling. Custom web lifting slings are also an option by calling our sales team .
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 containing 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.
Sling Proof Testing Certificates 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.
