7 Tips from AWRF for Sling Use: Wire Rope Slings


Wire rope offers a vast amount of versatility when being used in slings due to the following factors:  its strength, ability to lift hot materials, abrasion resistance, and the ability to conform to the shape of its loads.  Here are more facts and tips when using wire rope for slings.

  1. Identify the type of rope and rated load that you need for your sling and appropriate project.
  2. It is important to look at your sling and make sure that the configurations are accurate for the size of the sling. 
  3.  The handles and other accessories should be welded to end attachments, and should also be proof tested.
  4. Wire rope clips and hooks should be installed according to the recommendations of the manufacturer or qualified person.
  5. Inspections of the slings and fasteners needs to be done daily before each use to ensure safety.  If any defects are present, remove them from service.
  6. Repairing of slings is possible for reuse.  Do not make any repairs to wire rope used in the sling.
  7. Remember that slings that are subjected to extreme environments will be subject may become damaged, creating an unsafe work area.  Store slings properly to minimize any damage.
