Plate & Beam Hook Slings-Closed

These hooks are an efficient tool for handling, plates, beams, and other structural material in the horizontal or flat position.

The hooks are designed with a tapered opening which causes the hooks to pull up and wedge tightly on the edges of the material, thus providing the holding force while under load. The slot provided in the lower lip will permit the hook to straddle the web of a beam for lifting beam sections from the ends.

Slings with other than standard reach must be so noted at time of purchase and desired reach specified; unless so stated, slings will be supplied with reach as shown.

All dimensions and capacities are based only on the sling angles as shown.
