Hooks, Links & Swivels
Safety Services Group holds major stocks of high quality branded rigging equipment, tools and hardware. The brands include but are not limited to: Bash P, Johnson Gunnebo, Tractel, Vital, Yoke, Talurit and Crosby.
We offer a wide range of hooks, links and swivels. Lifting hooks are usually equipped with a safety latch to prevent the disengagement of the wire rope sling, chain or rope to which the load is attached. A swivel is a device that allows the connected object to rotate. Rigging hooks can come in many variations, which we have outlined below.
Grab hook: Designed to “grab” to keep a chain from slipping off the hook.
Slip hook: Generally has a wider throat than grab hooks and sometimes has a latch design to keep an attached object in its place.
Clevis hook: Designed with a clevis and bolt or pin at the base to create a secure way to fasten the hook to a bracket or chain.
Self-locking hook: When used within the working load limit guidelines, a self-locking design ensures the hook will not open when under heavy load.
