Choker & Basket Web Slings
(CH-TYPE I / BH-TYPE II)
Lifting and rigging slings that use hardware end fittings can be helpful to prolong sling life by protecting the webbing from abrasion on rough crane hooks. Some riggers find it easier and quicker to use hardware as opposed to a fabric eye. If the webbing in the sling becomes damaged, often the hardware can be reused, lowering sling replacement costs.
Steel hardware is ideal when the application involves alkali, caustic environments and salt water. Aluminum hardware can be severely degraded in such environments. Steel is also best when higher capacities are needed. Aluminum is only rated for 1 ply slings. See our capacity chart listed below.
“CH” lifting slings made with a triangle fitting on one end and a slotted triangle choker fitting on the other end. The CH configuration provides the most efficient and effective method of choke hitching of all sling types and configurations. This sling type can also be used in a vertical and basket hitch. Fittings can be of aluminum or alloy steel.
“BH” lifting slings are made with a triangle fitting on both ends. The "BH" configuration can be used in the vertical or basket hitch only and cannot be used in a choker hitch. Fittings can be of aluminum or alloy steel.
