Grommets - Strand Laid Mechanical Splice
A grommet is a special type of sling which forms a continuous loop. Grommets either have a wire rope body
or a body made up of 6 strands which are laid helically around a strand core. A mechanical splice then forms an endless sling body. The minimum circumference is 96 times the body diameter.
6 x 19 or 6 x 37 classification IWRC-EIPS
*Larger sizes available upon request.
Grommets are used in applications where
the rigging might be too short for a standard eye & eye wire rope sling.
Grommets can be more desirable than eye
& eye wire rope slings when extra flexibility
is desired or when lifts are limited with low
