    Chicago Shoulder Eye Bolts

    Chicago Hardware's shoulder pattern machinery eye bolts are made in the USA from drop forged steel that is heat treated for strength and ductility. There are several plating options such as self-colored, zinc plated or hot galvanized. Please contact us for pricing on zinc or hot galvanized. Threaded shanks will be supplied unless otherwise specified.

    Eye & Eye Slings

    Eye and Eye slings can be used in choker, vertical and basket hitches. Slings with Half Twist (Type 4) eyes are furnished unless Flat (Type 3) eyes are specified. Sling eyes will be wrapped at the bearing point unless otherwise specified. Eye & Eye nylon lifting slings featuring flat eyes can be used in all three hitches: choker, vertical and basket. Heavy duty nylon rigging slings featuring the Flat Eye and Eye design are made in widths ranging from as narrow as 1 inch and as wide as 12 inches. All Lift-It® Flat Eye & Eye slings feature protection at the sling eye bearing points. The extra protection wrapped around the sling eye provides additional service life as this is a critical wear area for all polyester and nylon rigging slings. Sling eyes are automatically tapered to a narrower width on Eye and Eye lifting slings that are over 3 inches in width. At Lift-It we do not charge extra to taper the eyes for your 2 inch wide rigging straps. Flat Eye, Eye and Eye nylon lifting slings used by crane and rigging customers around the world provide for the lowest profile eye available. Low profile eyes make sling removal easier when tight clearances are unavoidable. Nylon rigging slings that feature flat eyes are also referred to as double eye slings or Type 3 slings. If a more supple body composition is desired consider using Lift-It® polyester roundslings in the eye and eye style. Eye & Eye polyester round slings are formed by passing an exterior sleeve over the strands of the polyester roundsling. If a 200% load test is required on your slings please contact our sales team prior to ordering, 909-469-2251.
