These KWB 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.
KWB adjustable chain slings have a violet varnish coat and a heavy powder coating that helps with corrosion resistance. KWB is a Pewag company, a well-respected manufacturer based in Europe. We import and expertly assemble their manufactured chain and end fittings into the high-quality adjustable chain slings you see here.
End Fitting Options
Our single leg adjustable 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.
Other Single Leg Adjustable Sling Options
Crosby’s line of single leg adjustable chain slings feature the Crosby Eliminator, a revolutionary adjustable length chain sling fitting that literally eliminates the need for certain components in adjustable slings that have been traditionally required. Other benefits of the Crosby Eliminator include a hinged design that prevents bending against a curved object, plus a wider and longer bail.
Proof testing has been done on every link of chain to 2.5 times its working load limit. To get your custom chain sling tested at the time of manufacture, it must be requested when the order is placed with our sales specialists. For an additional fee, we will proof test your sling and issue a certificate when requested at the time the order is placed.
All of our chain meets or exceeds the latest guidelines of the National Association of Chain Manufacturers (NACM), ANSI B30.9 standards and OSHA specifications.
