Improving the Sling Angle

From The Pro Rigger with Mike Parnell

We often learn from our surroundings. By taking a page from other folk’s playbooks, we can start to appreciate new solutions to old problems.

Standard rigging generally calls for two to four slings rigged from the crane hook to the load. Either the slings connect directly to a pad eye or manufactured connector like a swivel hoist ring, or we might use the slings in choker or basket hitches. Especially when rigging with 4 slings, the angle of the slings is typically less than 90 degrees from the horizontal, which means they bear against a portion of the load. (You have heard from me numerous times in various articles about the absolute need to install sling protection when the potential exists for sling damage due to cutting or sliding friction, or load damage due to marring and scrubbing.)
