LEFT HAND RIGHT HAND
Left Lug Slinging These lifting lugs can be used with either cables or chains having the same WLL, normally either 8.5t or 12t for 16mm or 20mm chain size respectively. Any suitable connector can be used but for most applications Chain Connectors and Screw Pin, "Bow" or "Dee" shackles are recommended as shown in   Product Range.
Whatever connector is used the lug face must be parallel to corner fitting face being coupled with. (If at right angles when first fitting chain sling assemblies, it may be necessary to remove one link to correct this). When screw pin shackles are used, as shown here, the shackle screw-pin head must be on the same side as 'EAR' on lug side so that the assembly can be laid horizontally when in the insert position.
This applies to both Normal Lifting and Reverse Hand Lifting since 'EAR' must ALWAYS be upermost when lug is being inserted into aperture. Before deciding on a sling arrangement ensure that it complies with the limiting load given in Table of   Lifting Angles.
