Sling Inspection

We recommend the following procedure:

  1. Lay the sling on a flat surface in a well-lit area.
  2. Examine the sling throughout its length on both sides for surface chafe, cross or longitudinal cuts or any damage to the eyes, stitching, coupling components or fittings.
  3. When not in use, slings should be stored in clean, dry and well-ventilated conditions at ambient temperatures and on a rack away from contact with chemicals.
  4. If the outer cover is damaged, always check to ensure that the load bearing fibres are intact.
  5. Roundslings can be repaired when damage is restricted to the cover.  Return to us for a fully certified and speedy repair service.
