An eye and eye round polyester strap is one of the most versatile lifting slings available on the market today. The lightweight eye slings design makes them extremely cost-efficient:
Work with all hitch types (vertical, basket, and choker)
A web fabrication keeps the sling extremely lightweight, making them much more affordable than a similar chain sling or wire rope sling.
Manufactured in polyester, eye & eye round slings are resistant to stretching, so they’re better able to hold the load without the risk of shocking, as can happen with nylon lifting slings.
The polyester webbing also has other benefits:
Resists water absorption so it won’t weaken, rot, or mildew when used in wet or damp environments
Resistant to most chemicals (except concentrated acids and bleaches) and
Can be safely used in temperatures up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
All of our polyester round slings are also designed with a protective jacket over the load-bearing core. These durable and rugged jackets not only provide a layer of protection, they’re also color-coded by capacity, making it easy to quickly identify which sling should be used in a particular application.
All of our polyester slings also have an attached tag that includes the size, type, and rated capacities.

Sling proof testing certificates For a nominal fee, you can receive a proof testing certificate. Testing is performed in the factory where the sling is pull tested to 2x the vertical rating and officially recorded as proof for governing bodies. Because slings are tested randomly during production, you must request a certificate at the time you order.
