Parts of Rigging Hooks

Parts of Rigging Hooks

Rigging hooks, whose head is the part to be connected to the sling, come in different shapes, such as Eye, Clevis, Swivel, etc. Eye hooks gain more flexibility in terms of movement and ergonomics. But eye hook is a permanent solution, if it is stretched, bent or even broken during use, the whole sling will have to be removed. This prevents the pin from falling out. The disadvantage is that it does not have the same flexibility and freedom of movement as the eye hook. The swivel is rotatable, allowing the rigger to be properly aligned with the hook when attached to the load, but please note that the swivel hook is not intended to be rotated under load. used to rotate under load.

Rigging hooks also come in a variety of hook shapes, such as grab hook, slip hook, cargo hook, and self-locking hook (these hooks are mainly Grade 80/Grade 100 hooks).
