Before you reach for that trusty chain sling, are you conducting a proper pre-use inspection? Be sure to give a thorough visual to the full body of the sling, including all end fastenings. Other potential problem areas include:

  • Areas of excessive wear
  • Defective Welds
  • Deformation
  • Increase in length (stretch)


Follow along with ITI Technical Director, Mike Parnell, for some of the finer points. Enjoy!
