Hoist Rings

Posted on

Lifting or hoist rings are heavy duty instruments used to lift or lower various loads and machine assemblies. They connect the crane to the load you want to move. Various types of rings include the standard low-profile, which attaches directly to a mounting surface with socket head screws, the swivel, capable of 180-degree pivot and 360-degree rotation, and lifting pins. The type of ring and the required capacity depends on many factors such as the weight, size and material of the load. All Carr Lane's rings meet or exceed a 5:1 factor of safety and most meet or exceed ASTM B30.26.

Carr Lane offers a wide selection of lifting rings, including swivel rings that rotate 360 degrees that allow lifting from any direction, and a great variety of accessories for rings including forged rings, round and square road plates, clips and welded threaded inserts. Lift up to 15,000 lbs!
