Hand Spliced Eye
On a hand spliced wire rope sling, the tapered and concealed splice utilizes tension in the rope body to secure strands where they are tucked back into the rope. Needs no metal sleeve to assure firm anchoring. When “tapered” and “concealed”, ends of strands are tucked inward and concealed inside the rope.
Hand-spliced wire rope slings should not be used in lifts where the sling may rotate and cause the wire rope to unlay.
