Grommets, Cable Laid
Table RC 4-3
Hand Tucked Splice
Grommet Slings can be fabricated in very short circumferences. The reason is this; Grommet Slings are made from one continuous length of strand or wire rope. This requires only one tuck-in point as compared with six tuck-in points needed to manufacture an endless sling.
Grommets made from strand are called Rope Grommets – and are used high resistance to abrasion. Grommets made from wire rope are called Cable Grommets – and are used where extra flexibility is needed. Many fittings are adaptable for use with Grommet Slings.
Grommets are made to a length tolerance of plus or minus 6 sling body diameters or plus or minus 1% of circumferential sling length, whichever is greater.
