Fitting Maintenance

Fittings, including hooks, shackles, links, etc., may become worn and disfigured with use, resulting in nicks, gouges and sharp corners which produce additional stress conditions. Regular inspection is recommended to monitor product condition.
Grinding is the recommended procedure to restore smooth surfaces. A reduction of the products original dimension of 10 percent from wear and repair is allowable in the load bearing areas. Any greater reduction may necessitate a reduced Working Load Limit.
Any crack or deformation in a fitting is sufficient cause to withdraw the product from service.
