1. Do not put folded and wrinkled sling covers on bearing points. Smooth folds and wrinkles out of the covers with your hands.
2. Do not fold on path over the other path to fit sling into tight fittings. Squeeze both paths together to fit sling into fittings.
3. When rigging in a basket hitch, do not pull slack out of the hitch with the crane. Adjust slack by hand, before lifting with the crane
4. When rigging a vertical hitch with a long sling do not equalize the sling by using the crane to create tension. Equalize the slack side by hand
5. Do not allow the sling to roll over itself and twist at the choker hitch. Sling paths should be smooth in the choker hitch without any twisting.
6. Do not place the identification tag on the bearing point. Identification tag should be placed 18 to 24 inches away from the bearing point and facing away from the load.

7. When placing multiple Twin-Path® Slings in hardware, place the slings directly on top of each other or side by side.

8. When connection two slings with a shackle, do not place a sling over the pin area without protection. Use sling protection over the pin to protect the sling from cutting on the edges of the shackle’s holes.
  • Check-Fast® Inspection System provides a pass/fail (Go/No Go) inspection. If overloaded the External Warning Indicator disappears before the sling fails.
  • The separate inner cover shows red for warning that the sling is damaged and should be taken out of service for repair.
  • Twin-Path® Slings are repaired with patches. Each sling is proof tested after any type of repair.
  • Older slings may have two kinds of indicators. Tell-Tails warn of overload and Fiber Optics warn of core yarn damage.
