Product Description

High-quality rope and slings are anything but cheap, and protecting them is always a good idea. The same even applies to steel wire rope and chain, which many think of as cut-proof but often can benefit from the protection offered by wear pad material such as this. Unlike common wear pads that are cut-to-length at 12" or 18" in length, we sell this nylon chafe sleeve by the foot. Because it is hollow / tubular, it can be installed in length along the body of your rope, cable or chain and it works as a fixed or movable / sliding protection product. It is used commonly on flat web slings 3" and under in width, and on Laclede's biggest security chain (many use it as a buffer between their security chain and the item they are securing, such as a motorcycle). Keep in mind that if you want this chafe sleeve for use on a spliced product, it must be installed prior to splicing. It also works well installed on spliced eyes should you elect not to use a common steel or plastic thimble.

Note: Use this sleeve with Laclede 1/2" (13mm) Square "Lockdown" Security Chain. It is generally considered too large for smaller security chains.

* Chain sold separately.

Would this work on brown Tuflex round sling?
1 Answer
No, this chafe sleeve is closed (open on each end) and meant to slide onto something.  Since a roundsling is a closed loop, this will not work.  This wear pad should fit since it accommodates 4" slings and Brown Tuflex slings are spec'd at 4" wide while under load.  There are other options too that we would be happy to discuss with you, just give us a call @ 800-442-7454.

How does the sleeve do against hot metals? For example; an exhaust on a motorcycle.
1 Answer
While we do not know exactly what the temperature rating is on the exhaust pipe, if hot enough and if the sleeve is exposed long enough, we would expect the sleeve to singe or melt. When we cut this chafe sleeve, we use a hot knife to seal the ends--hopefully that frame of reference is helpful.

Great stuff.

It's some pretty tough stuff. If you are using the big chain, I would go with the 3-1/2" nylon. Makes life a little easier when stuffing the chain.
