Warning:
All Capacities and WLLs shown meet the specification of the Wire Rope Technical Board.
All Capacities and WLLs are based on a pin or object diameter which has at least 5 times the diameter of the sling body.
When a matching capacity round body shackle is used the D/d ratio becomes 2:1 or less. Depending on actual D/d ratio the sling capacity must be reduced by 35% to 45%!

PYTHON® – High Strength Grommet Slings

Rope Characteristic:

These slings are made from one continuous length of rope joined by pressing a UNI-LOC® Grommet Sleeve over the rope junction. The advantage is that the swaged sleeve gives a clear indication of the splice area.

PYTHON® Grommet Slings are about 35% stronger than regular 6-strand Grommets and are used where small sling dimensions are required.
