How slings are rigged 

Vertical 

Single leg to load in straight lift. The full rated lifting capacity 

can be used, but not exceeded.Load should not be allowed to  
rotate since this can damage the sling. 
Vertical  


Basket 

A basket hitch equally distributes the load between the two legs of a sling. Consideration must be given 

to the angles created in basket hitches since they reduce the rated capacity. 

(See “How Angles Effect Sling Stress” below) 

As the angle between the legs of the sling increase, the load each leg has to lift increases. This applies 

to a single sling used in a basket hitch as well as a multileg sling or bridle. See illustration below. 

1.First, divide the total load to be lifted by the number of legs to be used. This provides the 

load per leg if the lift were being made with all the legs lifting vertically. 


2.Determine the angle between the legs of the sling and the vertical. 

3.Then MULTIPLY the load per leg by the Load Factor for the leg angle 

being used (from the table at right) to compute the ACTUAL LOAD 

on each leg for this lift and angle. 

NOTE: THE ACTUAL LOAD MUST NOT EXCEED THE RATED 

SLING CAPACITY.  
4.Example: In drawing three (sling angle of 45 degrees): 

1000 ÷ 2 = 500kg ( Per Leg if a vertical lift) 

500 x 1.414 = 707kg = ACTUAL LOAD on each leg at the 45 degree 

horizontal angle being used.
