Single leg chain slings are extremely versatile since they can also be used for load securing and pulling.
Hook Options for Single Leg Lifting Slings
Our single leg chain slings are manufactured with a master oblong on one end and your choice of a sling hook, self-locking hook, foundry hook, or grab hook on the other end. A configuration with a hook on each end is also an option, or an oblong on each end. Contact our sales team to order custom single leg chain slings.
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 hooks: 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.
Oblong master link: An oblong shaped ring used at the top of chain slings.
Single Leg Chain Capacity
These lifting slings should be used with vertical hitches in a lift and have a 90-degree angle of lift. Capacity varies by chain size. See each size above for the various lifting capacities.
Single Leg Lifting Chain by Brand
We offer two trusted brands of lifting chain slings for you to choose from: Crosby and KWB. Both are made using alloy steel chain that’s 25% stronger than Grade 80 alloy chain.
Crosby has been a leader in the rigging and lifting industry for years and takes no shortcuts when it comes to manufacturing chain and rigging hardware. Crosby single leg chain slings are manufactured right here in the USA and expertly assembled by US Cargo Control.
KWB grade100 chain slings have a signal violet varnish coat and a heavy powder coating that helps with corrosion resistance. KWB is a Pewag company, based in Europe. We import and expertly assemble their manufactured chain and end fittings into the high-quality single leg chain slings you see here.
Adjustable Lifting Slings
We also offer adjustable single leg chain slings from both Crosby and KWB. These have an adjustable hook that allows the user to shorten the chain leg as needed for a specific application, without decreasing the WLL.
Proof testing has been done on every link of chain to ensure 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 single leg chain slings meets or exceeds the latest guidelines of the National Association of Chain Manufacturers (NACM), ANSI B30.9 standards and OSHA specifications.
