In this episode, Steven Walker answers a question from Joe at Rockford Rigging: “When rigging a load with two sling legs and a center of gravity in the middle, how can a rigger in the field easily determine if they have obtained 60-degree angle of loading between the slings and the load?”Read More
Have you ever needed to determine the sling length for a desired angle of loading (horizontal sling angle), but perhaps struggled with how to get the correct answer?Read More
Because most of the time the rigger in the field only has one connection point to collect their slings, it is important that they understand best practices for rigging triangles and angles formed.
The rigging triangle is formed any time two or more slings are connected to a load and the other end of the slings are collected in a common point such as a hook, shackle, or ring. Whether the slings are chain, wire rope, or synthetic rope, sling angle best practices are the same.Read More
