IP (Inter Product) safety hoist clamps are applied in the vertical and horizontal transport of goods that are often heavy and/or expensive, such as metal sheets, posts, pipes, vessels etc. Compact, lightweight and user-friendly, they are commonly used in the ship building, offshore, aircraft construction and metal-processing industries. Drum clamps, beam clamps and specialty clamps are examples of such IP clamps.
A wide range of hooks and swivels are available from BLP and Crosby for the entire spectrum of rigging applications. A lifting hook is a device for grabbing and lifting loads by means of a device such as a hoist or crane. Lifting hooks are usually equipped with a safety latch to prevent the disengagement of the lifting wire rope sling, chain or rope to which the load is attached. A swivel is a connection that allows the connected object to rotate horizontally and/or vertically.
McKissick blocks are designed to meet the requirements of both short tons and metric tons. They have been utilized in the most demanding rigging applications in every corner of the world for 65 years.
A shackle is a U-shaped piece of metal secured with a pin or bolt across the opening, or a hinged metal loop secured with a quick-release locking pin mechanism used as a connecting link in rigging systems. .
Crosby sling saver fittings were designed for use with synthetic slings and to eliminate bunching.
Crosby western and marine blocks are designed with a bolt style center pin with lock washer and staked nut. There are no straps and the sides are laser burned. Every block is permanently stamped with the working load limit, block size and rope size.
Wire rope end fittings restrict the free movement of wires at the end of the rope to prevent dislodging. On-site installation of wire rope end fittings can be performed without chemistry, heat, pressure, or special tooling.
