Measuring Chain Slings

"How do I measure my chain sling?"


Clients often ask us this before ordering. This is important to understand because the identification tag required by OSHA is reflective of a very particular measuring method that we use. When measuring the length of a sling, we measure by pick point to pick point (or grab point to grab point). This measurement is not directly related to the length of the chain at all. In fact, because master rings and hooks can come in various sizes, the chain length can vary quite a bit between slings. For more information, take a look at the video we put together below:
