KWB Adjustable Slings

KWB adjustable chain lifting slings look similar to standard lifting slings, as they"re comprised of one, two, three, or four legs of chain with a hook at each end and a master oblong at the top. However, an adjustable sling features additional shortener fittings that are attached right to the master link. These allow the operator to adjust the length of the chain legs as needed, without compromising lifting strength and working load limit.
