Hand Tucked Continuous Construction —
Cable laid grommets are made from one continuous wire rope.
Wire rope grommet strength efficiency over various sizes of pins based on standard published rated capacities tables (D = connection point, d = wire rope diameter).
Reduction In Strength of Wire Rope
When Bent Over Sheaves or Pins of Various Sizes
Cable Laid Grommet Capacities are based on EIPS-Fiber Core Wire Rope
Rated capacities basket hitch and vertical lift based on D/d ratio of 5 where “d” = body diameter of the finished grommet
Rated capacities based on design factor of 5
Rated capacities based on pin diameter no smaller than 5 times the body diameter
Horizontal sling angles less than 30 degrees shall not be used
