    IMPROPER USE OR CARE OF CHAIN CAN RESULT IN LOSS OF LOAD AND/OR PERSONAL INJURY.

    TO AVOID INJURY:
    • Do not exceed the Work Load Limit.
    • Always inspect chain before use for wear, damage and elongation. Do not impact load or jerk chain.
      Apply load slowly.
    • Protect chain from corrosion and high temperatures.
    • Use only alloy chain and attachments for lifting
    • Do not use twisted, knotted or kinked chain.
    • Select the proper grade and size chain for the application.
    • Select attachments such as hooks to match the grade, size and Work Load Limit of the chain.
    • Be aware of the environment where chain and hardware are being used. Extreme temperatures and corrosive media
      can affect the Work Load Limit and the life of chain and hardware.


    IMPROPER USE OR CARE OF CHAIN CAN RESULT IN LOSS OF LOAD AND/OR PERSONAL INJURY.

    TO AVOID INJURY:
    • Do not exceed the Work Load Limit.
    • Do not tip load or use attachments in any manner for which they were not intended.
    • Do not shock or dynamic load.
    • Do not apply load to latches. Latches are to retain slack slings and chain only.
    • Select attachments to match the grade, size and Work Load Limit of the chain.
    • Do not use excessively worn or damaged attachments.
    • Do not use mechanical coupling links to repair alloy chains used for lifting.
    • When using masterlinks, do not use oversize crane hooks where the link does not fit in the saddle of the hook.
    • When using shackles, do not side load. Centerline of the load must coincide with centerline of shackle.
    • Do not replace pins or bolts with other than original equipment parts.
    • Use only forged carbon wire rope clips for critical or lifting applications.
    • Do not use malleable iron wire rope clips for critical or lifting applications.
    • Use wire rope clips in conjunction with wire rope thimbles.
    • When using shoulder eyebolts, always apply load in the plane of the eye.
    • When using shoulder eyebolts, make sure shoulder is at 90 degrees to axis of hole and seated.
    • When using hoist rings, verify full 360 degree seating and re-torque periodically.
    • Do not move unbalanced loads.
    • When using load binders, do not use a cheater bar or handle extension.
    • Do not operate a load binder while anyone is on the load.
    • Release lever type load binders with extreme care. Make sure everyone is clear of the load as handle may
      whip suddenly.
