How to Select and Order Certified Nylon Lifting Slings

How to Select and Order Certified Nylon Lifting Slings

To select and order certified nylon lifting slings
1. Determine the maximum weight and size of the load to be lifted.
2. Determine the type and length of the sling needed to fit your application.
3. Determine the number of plies and web width required to lift the specified load.
Refer to the working load limit chart provided on the main nylon slings page.
4. Click on the part number that corresponds to the correct sling for your application.
You'll find a list of available lengths to add to your cart.

The part number is actually a code that describes each sling exactly. For example, if you want a 2 inch wide, 3-ply, 15 foot long eye and eye sling, you would simply order an NSEE3-92-15.
