EYE AND EYE


Safe-Line Eye and Eye Slings work well in vertical, choker and basket hitches for light and medium lifting. Straight eyes are standard and best for most lifting. Twisted eyes are better for choker hitches and are available on request at no extra charge. Eyes tapered to 1/2 the body width are standard on all slings with a body width of 3" or wider, to facilitate use on crane cooks. Non-tapered eyes are available on request.
