3, before hanging, should confirm whether the lifting bolt hanging connection point set on the lifting load is firm, should confirm whether the connection is reliable before ascension.

4. The load of the sling shall not exceed the rated lifting weight, and the sling (including each limb) shall not exceed the safe working load (including high and low temperature, corrosion and other special working conditions).

5. Do not damage the hanging parts, lifting slings and rigging during operation. If necessary, add protective pads at the contact between the hanging parts and slings.

6. The lifting point of the crane hook should be on the same plumb line as the weight of the crane so that the load is in a stable and balanced state; otherwise, a trial lifting test should be done before lifting, until the load is balanced, so as to prevent sliding or rolling during lifting.
