A big goal we’ve initiated for 2013 is taking a good close look at all of our product categories. We want to be sure we are offering the products our customers need, at the best prices possible.

Our most recent overhaul was the updating of our nylon lifting slings. While we were already offering a wide selection of the most common lifting straps like eye & eye slings and endless slings, one area we were not covering was bridle slings.

An entire category of nylon bridle slings is now available, including single-leg, double-leg, triple-leg, and quad-leg options in a tough, durable nylon webbing.

A bridle nylon lifting slings offer some advantages over other types of lift slings because the leg design on the double, triple, and quad styles allow bearing points to be rotated with each use, extending the sling’s life. It also offers benefits in comparison to a similar lifting slings in wire rope or chain, since the fabric body offers more flexibility and is generally easier to handle. Nylon also stretches (each leg of the sling will stretch approximately 3% at rated capacity), which allows the sling to absorb shock and create a load distribution that’s more even.

Our bridle nylon lifting  slings are made in the USA and custom-made to your specifications so we ask that call our lifting sling sales team at 800-660-3585 to place an order.

Another new change to the nylon lifting slings page is the addition of a simple online form where you can request a price quote for a boat sling.
