CARE AND SAFE USE

Although chain slings are designed for rugged, lasting service, precautions should be observed to extend the product’s life. Certain hazards are inherent in the operation of chain slings and users must exercise care and common sense to ensure a safe working environment. Please practice the following safe work rules:

* Never exceed the working load limit of a chain sling.
* Assemblies must be rated at the WLL (working load limit) of the weakest component.
* Do not rest or dump load on chain.
* Remove twists, knots or kinks before lifting.
* Seat load properly within throat opening and centered in bowl of the hook.
* Balance load to avoid undue stress on one leg of multi-leg slings.
* Never bounce, jerk or shockload a sling when lifting or lowering items.
* Remove slack by slowly applying the load to the chain.
* Use pads around sharp corners.
* Never force or hammer hooks or chain into position.
* Never anneal alloy chain slings.
* Do not use in acid solutions.
* Avoid extreme temperatures (under 20 degrees F or over 350 degrees F).
* Clean and inspect chain slings regularly.
* Protect chain from corrosion.
* Store chain slings in a clean, dry area, preferably by hanging on racks or A-frames.
