Campbell, a premier brand of chain and fittings from Apex Tool Group (Sparks, MD) has announced its new improved Grade 100 Alloy Sling Hooks. The new green-painted hooks are available in both clevis and eye styles and are made for use with Grade 80 and Grade 100 chain slings. Latched models feature a new heavy-duty latch and spring assembly. The new latch and spring assembly is designed for exceptional durability. Features include:
- The heavy-gauge, high-strength steel latch with reinforcing rib, providing ultimate rigidity and bending resistance.
- A yellow chromate finish for corrosion resistance.
- The double-strength spring, which ensures the latch is held against the hook to securely retain slings and other components.
- Dual forged support bosses, for added durability, providing lateral support for precise latch/hook alignment and engagement.
With a 4:1 design factor, the new Alloy Sling Hooks meet or exceed the requirements of ASME B30.9 and B30.10. The working load limit ranges from 5,700 lbs. to 35,300 lbs.
