New forged rigging attachments allow for safe, quick and efficient building of synthetic slings.
Columbus McKinnon Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCO) has expanded its portfolio of rigging attachments for synthetic slings to include CM Quick Connect Hooks, CM Flat Eye Rigging Hooks and a more comprehensive line of CM Weblok Assemblies.
CM Quick Connect Hooks are a quick and easy way to add load attachment points to any synthetic sling by eliminating the need for additional hardware or assembly tools. Designed with a large, flat bearing surface and recessed area that together prevent the sling from bunching and shifting, Quick Connect Hooks allow synthetic slings to be used safely and at full capacity. They also help ensure easy and proper rigging. Quick Connect Hooks are color coded to match common synthetic sling capacities.
To promote longer sling life, CM Flat Eye Rigging Hooks provide a wide, smooth, load-bearing surface that won’t damage synthetic material. The flat eye opening also eliminates bunching and pinching of the synthetic sling to ensure it can be used at full capacity.
For maximum versatility, CM Weblok Assemblies allow for quick and safe sling attachment, whether you’re attaching chain and a master link to a synthetic sling or a synthetic sling to a synthetic sling. Available in two designs, including synthetic-to-attachment and synthetic-to-synthetic, CM Webloks feature either single or double load pin retention depending on your application’s safety requirements.
