These Crosby single leg adjustable chain slings offer the versatility of a single leg sling with the benefits of an adjustable design. Shortening the chain does not cause a reduction in the WLL. Single leg adjustable slings can be used for load securing and pulling. They should be used with vertical hitches in a lift and have a 90-degree angle of lift. WLL ranges from 4,300 lbs. to 35,300 lbs.
Crosby’s single leg adjustable chain slings feature the Crosby Eliminator, a revolutionary adjustable chain sling fitting that literally eliminates the need for certain components which have traditionally been required.
Benefits of Crosby Eliminator
Benefits of the Crosby Eliminator include a hinged design that prevents bending against a curved object and a wider and longer bail. The Eliminator also has a wider bail that accommodates more hook sizes and optional Latch Pin that keeps the shortened chain in position when sling is removed from the crane hook temporarily. You won’t find this style of adjustable sling fitting anywhere except on a Crosby brand adjustable chain sling.

End Fitting Options
Crosby single leg chain slings with chain shortener are manufactured with your choice of end fitting on the long leg: sling hook, foundry hook, grab hook, or self-locking hook. However, custom chain slings are our specialty, so please give our sales team a call if you require different hardware.
Sling hook - also known as slip sling hooks, these large throat hooks are commonly used at the ends of chain slings and wire rope. They’re typically self-locking to avoid disconnect.
Self-locking hook - these hooks are designed to pivot in the middle and lock when lifting pressure is applied. They cannot be opened while lifted with your overhead lifting chains.
Foundry hook - these are extra-large throat hooks that are used in unique situations that require a larger opening to manage loads.
Grab hook - these chain sling hooks have a small throat that attaches to the chain by slinging over the chain in-between links.
