Synthetic Slings

Total Tool manufactures synthetic slings on-site at our St. Paul, MN branch from materials produced in the USA. They are generally made of nylon or polyester and are used below the hook to attach the load being lifted. Best for short-term use, they are considered the most reliable for handling delicate loads. Each sling must have an attached identification tag providing the grade, size, reach, type of sling, working load limit at a specific angle of lift, and serial number.

Web Slings

Web slings are used for lifting highly-polished, fragile or delicate loads needing protection from damage. They are made of either nylon or polyester flat webbing and offer a wide surface area to ensure a secure grip around the load. Their superb flexibility allows them to be quickly and safely handled by riggers.

Use & Inspection:

Before each use, all slings, fastenings and attachments should be inspected for defects and damage. Additional inspections should be performed on a regular basis. Damaged or defective slings should be removed and destroyed immediately.

A sling should be removed from service if damage such as the following is visible:

  • Acid or caustic burns.
  • Melting or charring of any part of the sling.
  • Holes, tears, cuts or snags.
  • Excessive abrasive wear.
  • Knots in any part of the sling.
  • Excessive pitting, corrosion, cracking or distortion in end fittings.
  • Other visible damage that causes doubt as to the strength of the sling.
How to Order:

To order your Web Sling, you will need to know the following information:

  • Determine the maximum weight and size of the load to be lifted.
  • Determine the type and length of sling needed to fit your application.
Round Slings

Round slings have large capacity while being relatively inexpensive. Their pliable design allows it to hug a load better than other types of lifting slings. They are covered with a durable polyester color-coded fabric jacket to indicate the weight capacities of the sling—making it easy to recognize the weight ratings at a glance.

Use & Inspection:

Before each use, all slings, fastenings and attachments should be inspected for defects and damage. Additional inspections should be performed on a regular basis. Damaged or defective slings should be removed and destroyed immediately.

A sling should be removed from service if damage such as the following is visible:

  • Acid or caustic burns.
  • Melting or charring of any part of the sling.
  • Holes, tears, cuts or snags.
  • Excessive abrasive wear.
  • Knots in any part of the sling.
  • Excessive pitting, corrosion, cracking or distortion in end fittings.
  • Other visible damage that causes doubt as to the strength of the sling.
How to Order:

To select your round sling, we will need to know:

  • The maximum weight and size of load to be lifted.
  • The length of the sling needed for your application. (Be sure to take into account whether the sling will be used in a vertical, choker or basket capacity).

Using this information, we will match the correct round sling for your application. Each Round Sling is marked with a Rated Capacities Tag for your reference in the field.

Chain Slings & the GrabiQ Sling System

Operating under high temperatures, near environmental hazards or rugged conditions that may cause damage when raising a load? Chain slings are your answer—flexible, long lasting, ductile, easy to inspect and collapsible for convenient storage. If customization is necessary, they are an excellent choice as they can be configured in a number of ways to ensure they adhere securely and meet the needs of your lift.

Chain is an important tool in rigging. That is why we stock a wide variety of chain and components. Chain is made out of steel links that are then forged together at a high temperature. There are different grades of chain for different uses:

Grade 30 Proof Coil - a general purpose utility chain used for pulling, logging or towing.

Grade 40 High Test - has a higher tensile strength than Grade 30 used for hauling and other general purpose applications.

Grade 70 Transport - primarily used for load binding in the transportation industry due to its light weight and high tensile strength.

Grade 80 Alloy - a high tensile strength chain designed to be used in lifting applications manufactered by Gunnebo Johnson corp. All Grade 80 chain and components are proof tested at their factory.

Grade 100 Alloy - 25% stronger than Grade 80. Combine with GrabiQ components.

Rigging has never been easier than with the incorporation of the GrabiQ sling system. Instead of the normal 7 top fittings, the GrabiQ system has only 1 therefore reducing the number of components and making it much more versatile. Fewer parts not only make the sling lighter, but easier to use, inspect and maintain. Additionally, GrabiQ offers more configuration options than standard components and is 25% stronger than a grade 80 sling.

Each chain sling must have an attached identification tag providing the grade, size, reach, type of sling, working load limit at a specific angle of lift, and serial number.

Wire Rope Slings

Wire rope slings are robust, durable, have high temperature limits and are the most economical option for most lifting needs. They also are the most frequently used type of sling in the industry. Total Tool has the capability to fabricate these in various configurations at our rigging shops. Each sling must have an attached identification tag providing the grade, size, reach, type of sling, working load limit at a specific angle of lift, and serial number.

Wire rope is made of many small wires that have been pulled through a machine and twisted to form a rope. XIP is the most common grade for wire rope. We stock this grade in sizes from 1/32” to 1-1/2” XXIP can be special ordered if needed for a special application. XXIP has a 10% higher nominal strength than XIP, which allows those who need this grade to use a smaller diameter wire rope and still have the same capacities as XIP.

All wire rope of the same classification, size, grade and core have the same nominal strength and weight per foot. Different constructions within each classification differ in working characteristics. These characteristics must be considered when you are selecting a wire rope. The two most popular classifications are 6x19 and 6x37, with either a wire center core or a fiber core

Bulk Wire Rope

Below the Hook Lifting Devices

Below the Hook Lifters are pieces of equipment that provide a connection point between the crane and the load being lifted and include: plate lamps, beam clamps, lifting beams.

Manual Hoists

Total Tool is a supplier of manual lever and chain hoists which are both used to effectively for pull, lift and position materials.

Manual Lever Hoists

Manual lever operated hoists are a basic and versatile piece of equipment used in numerous applications to aid workers in the handling, moving, and tensioning of loads. They are generally available in three types as defined by the medium used to tension or move the load: chain, wire rope, and web strap.

Chain Falls

A hand-powered hoist consisting of chains working on the pulley principle, used to lift and move large heavy objects.

Tie Downs

Tie down straps are fasteners used to hold down cargo or equipment during transport. These straps are essentially webbing outfitted with hardware which allows the tie down strap to attach to the area of concern. The strap either surrounds, loops over and/or attaches to the cargo or equipment. There are several different kinds of fasteners with the most common being Ratchet Straps, Chain Binders and Tie Down Chains. Total Tool carries all of these and more!

Manual Hoist

In addition to a pre-shift inspection program for manual hoists, OHSA requires hoists are inspected and documented periodically. This includes lever hoists and chainfalls.

Overhead Cranes

Due to the large and heavy objects often being transported by overhead cranes, routine inspections are necessary to ensure continued operation and overhead crane safety. Per OSHA, a complete inspection with records is required at least every 12 months. Wire rope and hook inspections are required monthly and must be recorded.

InspectALL

Total Tool can help you create a more efficient process to standardize your inspection compliance program. We use InspectALL, an inspection documentation software system that efficiently captures your audits and forms and automatically builds a powerful database.
