Crosby's Newest Member of the Shur-Loc Family!
The Shur-Loc is one of the most recognizable hooks in the rigging world. It is a self-closing hook with a heavy-duty latch that engages as soon as a load is applied to the hook for maximum safety. This newest model, the S-1316AH, allows the user to get a confident grip on any load--the handle opening is big enough to accommodate even a gloved hand. Additionally, the handle hilt provides added protection against slippage, making the user's hand as safe as possible. All models are now equipped with a recessed trigger that is flush with the hook body, which protects the trigger from potential damage. The trigger is also easy to operate with enlarged thumb access--important for cold climates where users might be wearing gloves. The closed eye on top makes this hook suitable for use with wire rope, soft rope or synthetic rigging slings (just be sure to match proper Working Load Limits with all materials involved). Made from Grade 100 alloy steel, featuring Crosby's "Platinum" coloring. Suitable for use with Grade 100 and Grade 80 alloy chain slings. Safety factor of 4:1 (you can choose to rig with a 5:1 safety factor when using wire rope slings, or synthetic materials, see specification sheet for full details).
