When making sling assemblies, or when making any number of rigging connections, it's hard to get by without good rings / links. We sell multiple styles from both domestic (Crosby®) and imported sources. These rings are made from weldless (except in some larger sizes), forged steel and carry Working Load Limits that make them safe for lifting (use Grade 100 Master Links to meet OSHA requirements for Alloy Steel Chain Slings). The most common ring type we sell is the oblong master link, though the other types move pretty well too. It really depends on your needs, so be sure to study the specifications and attributes of each type before making your selection.
We have some speciality links in this category too, such as the Gunnebo MG or Gunnebo MGD master links from their innovative GrabiQ line. Similar to these links is the Double Eliminator from Crosby®. No matter which brand you choose, these master links are made for building really slick Grade 100 Chain Slings. They are both a master link and set of adjusters all-in-one. The adjusters (or "grabs") are integrated into the design of the master link, so you only have one fitting where you used to have seven. This makes your adjustable chain slings easy to use, easy to handle and often cheaper to build.
