Handing for Normal Use
Right Hand Lug/Corner Box Slings or strops should be for either side or end lifting see Slinging Right Hand Lug/Corner Box

Note that for any corner fitting the adjacent faces are of opposite hand. If, when in use, access to appropriate aperture is denied, then Reverse Handing situation is presented and instructions for use in this case are given in the above link.
