Splicing the ends of a piece of wire rope makes an endless sling. It is simple to handle and can be used in several different ways to lift loads. The endless sling is most commonly used as a choker hitch. When the endless sling is used as a choker, user passes it around the object forming a loop on top of the object. The other end is passed through this loop, pulled tight and attached to the cargo hook. To balance the load, user spread apart the two parts of the sling on the bottom of the object. Double part endless slings are available in both ferule spliced and hand spliced.
A Grommet consists of an endless rope made from one continuous length of strand formed to make a body composed of six strands around a strand core. The strand ends are tucked into the body forming the core with the tuck position diametrically opposite to the core position. We manufacture standard grommets from a single strand of wire rope to make a complete circle of wire rope, with almost invisible joints, and these can be used for many purposes such as lifting slings, piling extractors, vibration inhibitors etc.
Grommet are available in endless round and with eye and eye type.
