Single Leg Chain Sling

A single leg chain sling is a lifting device used in material handling and lifting applications. Unlike multi-leg slings, a single leg chain sling consists of just one length of chain. Here are some key points about single leg chain slings:

A single leg sling may be used to connect a lifting appliance to a load with a single lifting point such as the eyebolt on an electric motor. (See figure 1A5.1(a)) It may also be used in choke hitch either by back hooking or reeving one end of the sling through the other. (See figure 1A5.1(b))
Single Leg Chain Sling
Two identical single leg slings may be used in combination to form, in effect, a two leg sling. (See figure 1A5.2) Care is necessary to ensure that the hook of the lifting appliance is not overcrowded and it is recommended that the upper end of the sling legs to be connected by a shackle or link. (See figure 1A5.3) Where this is done the legs must be symmetrically disposed and the angle of a leg should not exceed 45° to the vertical.

The method of attaching the slings to the crane hook should ensure that the sling eyes or links are not damaged. Two single leg slings used as a two leg sling must be treated as a two leg sling for rating purposes. The combined SWL when the legs are at an angle between 0 and 45° to the vertical (0 to 90° included angle) is 1.4 times the SWL of the single leg.

  • Configuration: A single leg chain sling typically consists of a single chain with attachments at each end. One end may have a master link or connecting link that connects to the lifting equipment (such as a crane hook), while the other end may have a hook, shackle, or other attachment for securing the load.
  • Material: The chain used in a single leg chain sling is usually made of strong and durable materials such as alloy steel, ensuring it can handle heavy loads and endure challenging working conditions.
  • Attachments: The ends of the chain are fitted with hooks, shackles, or other attachments designed to securely connect to the load. The choice of attachments depends on the specific requirements of the lifting operation.
  • Load Capacity: The load capacity of a single leg chain sling depends on factors like the size and strength of the chain, the type of attachments used, and the working load limits specified by the manufacturer.
  • Versatility: Single leg chain slings are versatile and can be used in various lifting applications. They are commonly used in construction, manufacturing, and other industries where lifting and material handling are required.
  • Inspection and Maintenance: As with any lifting equipment, regular inspection and maintenance are crucial for ensuring the safety and reliability of single leg chain slings. Inspections should check for wear, damage, and proper functioning of hooks and attachments.
  • Safety Considerations: Follow safety guidelines and regulations when using a single leg chain sling. Proper training of personnel involved in lifting operations is essential to prevent accidents and ensure safe use.

Always refer to the manufacturer's guidelines and industry standards for the specific single leg chain sling you are using. Compliance with local safety regulations and standards is crucial for safe lifting operations. Additionally, adherence to proper rigging practices and load handling procedures enhances the safety and efficiency of lifting operations.

Grade 8 Chain Sling EN 818-4
The Machinery Directive stipulates that where chain with welded links is used for lifting accessories it is to be of short line type and for the purposes of this standard this is chain having a ratio of nominal pitch to nominal size of 3:1.

This European Standard specifies the requirements related to safety, methods of rating and testing of single-, two-, three-, four-leg and endless chain slings assembled by:

a) mechanical joining devices

b) welding

using short link grade 8 medium tolerance lifting chain conforming to EN 818-2 together with the appropriate range of components of the same grade.

chain sling
assembly consisting of a chain leg or chain legs joined to upper and lower terminals for attaching loads to the hook of a crane or other lifting machine.

nominal size of chain sling

The nominal size of short link chain, in millimetres, used in the manufacture of the chain sling.

nominal grade of chain sling
For the purpose of designation in accordance with annex C, is the same as the grade of the short link chain used in the manufacture of the chain sling i.e. 8.

master link
A link forming the upper terminal of a chain by means of which the chain sling is attached to the hook of a crane or other lifting machine.

length of a leg
For a finished chain sling, is the length from the lower bearing point of the lower terminal to the upper bearing point of the upper terminal.

intermediate master link
A link used to connect one or two legs of a sling to a master link.

lower terminal
A link, hook or other device fitted at the end of a leg of a sling, remote from the master link or upper terminal.

mechanical joining device

A means of connection which does not depend on welding. It may be integral with a component or be a separate component.

joining link

A welded link fitted to the end of a chain to connect it either directly or through an intermediate link to an upper or lower terminal or intermediate master link or in the case of an endless chain sling to the other end of the chain.

intermediate link
A welded link used to form a connection between the terminal and the joining link fitted to the chain.

manufacturing proof force (MPF) of a chain sling
A force applied during manufacture as a test to the whole chain sling or a force applied as a test to a section of chain sling.

working load limit (WLL) of a chain sling
The maximum mass which a sling is authorized to sustain in general lifting service.

master link assembly
assembly consisting of a master link together with two intermediate master links.
