We recommend the following procedure:
- Lay the sling on a flat surface in a well-lit area.
- 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.
- 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.
- If the outer cover is damaged, always check to ensure that the load bearing fibres are intact.
- Roundslings can be repaired when damage is restricted to the cover. Return to us for a fully certified and speedy repair service.
