Minimum Pin Diameter Chart for Twin-Path® Slings


Slingmax® recently published a minimum recommended hardware diameter for Twin-Path® Slings.  "Slings used with fittings shall be compatible with the fittings used.  The lifting capacity shall be related at the lower of the fitting or sling.  Fitting openings shall be of the proper shape and size to assure that the sling will seat properly."


This tool is useful when precise calculations are needed for drafting a complex rigging plan. Click here for chart of minimum Twin-Path hardware diameters.
