Ticknor® Adjustable Rope Slings

Care and Use of Ticknor® Adjustable Rope Slings

  • Never exceed rated capacities of slings.
  • Never "shock load" a sling. The actual force caused by a sudden application or abrupt release of a load can easily exceed capacities and damage a sling.
  • Sling angles, measured between a horizontal line and the sling leg, have a direct and oftentimes dramatic affect on the rated capacity of a sling. Angles less than 45 degrees are not recommended and those below 30 degrees should be avoided whenever possible.
  • Avoid all abrasive conditions since rough surfaces or sharp edges will severely damage a sling. Do not drag slings across ground.
  • Avoid exposure to chemicals such as solvents, acids and alkalis.
  • Avoid exposure to temperatures above 194 degrees F. Elevated temperatures will reduce tensile strength and continued exposure may melt, part or permanently damage the sling.
  • Slings should be stored in a cool, dry, dark location away from direct sunlight and heat.
  • Slings shall be inspected frequently to detect signs of excessive wear or damage. Slings should be visually inspected prior to each use and periodically inspected at least once a year with written documentation of the inspection.
  • Slings shall be inspected frequently to detect signs of excessive wear or damage. Slings should be visually inspected prior to each use and periodically inspected at least once a year with written documentation of the inspection.
  • Inspect the sling before each use for frayed strands or broken yarns.
  • Slings that show signs of wear, abuse or aging should be removed from service immediately. Destroy any questionable rope slings.
  • Tensile strength or dielectric strength cannot be determined in a damaged rope sling. When in doubt, destroy the sling.
