The first truly ergonomic sling, Twin-Path® Extra Slings (TUFXKS a.k.a. TPXC) are used worldwide in place of wire rope slings for heavy lifts. Twin-Path® Extra Slings weigh approximately 10% of comparable strength, steel slings. Super strong and ultra-light, Twin-Path® Extra Slings rated at 600,000 Lbs. vertical capacity are standard items and larger capacity heavy lifting slings are available.

The patented Twin-Path® (TUFXKS a.k.a. TPXC) design provides two connections between the hook and the load for redundant, back up protection. Twin-Path® Slings feature: Tattle Tails, Contrasting Colored Covers, Fiber Optic Inspection System and ✓Check-Fast® Inspection System. No other sling has these features which separate the best from all the rest. Stretch at Work Load Limit is approximately 1%.
 
K-Spec® load bearing core yarn gives Twin-Path Extra® Slings (TUFXKS a.k.a. TPXC) their incredible strength. K-Spec® Core Yarn has been determined to be the most resilient and abrasion resistant load bearing core yarn, confirmed by independent testing. Covermax®, a bulked nylon, outer, protective cover provides superior abrasion resistance. Covermax® is furnished for all Twin-Path® Slings rated greater than 40,000 vertical pounds.

K-Spec® Core Yarn durability combined with the abrasion resistance of Covermax® covers, makes Twin-Path®Extra Slings the first, repairable sling. Twin-Path® Extra Slings (TUFXKS a.k.a. TPXC) are definitely the slings of choice when ergonomics, productivity and safety are important considerations. Please check out our Single-Path line of high performance slings as well.

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.
