SINGLE PART BODY MECHANICAL SPLICE
WIRE ROPE SLINGS

wire rope sling
Eyes are formed using the flemish eye splice. Ends are secured by pressing a metal sleeve over the ends of the strands of the splice. Pull is directly along the centerline of the rope and eye. Gives most efficient use of rope capacity and is economical.

eye splice Flemish Eye Splice
In the standard flemish eye mechanical splice, rope is separated into two parts - 3 adjacent strands, and 3 adjacent strands and core. These two parts are then re-laid back in opposite directions to form an eye, and ends are secured with a pressed metal sleeve.

This cutaway of a metal sleeve swaged onto a splice shows how metal "flows" into valleys between strands to prevent ends from unlaying when sling is within its rated capacity.

        All capacities in tons of 2,000lbs. All eye and fitting dimensions in inches.
