Every lifting point has its own specific thread diameter and lifting capacity. Before you finalise your SafetyLiftinGear order, it is crucial that you double-check the diameter and capacity of the load rings you are purchasing.
- Thread diameter refers to the size of the lifting point's 'eye'. If the ropes or chains that you use have a larger diameter than that of your load ring, you will not be able to attach properly, so make sure you get the diameter right!
- Lifting capacity is the maximum weight that our load rings can lift safely. This capacity must not be exceeded under any circumstances; over-lifting may cause your lifting points to fail, with potentially disastrous consequences.
