SUPPLIER NEWS - Campbell's redesigned their sling hooks with a latch assembly feature and extra-thick steel construction

Campbell new Sling Hooks with latch assembly

Campbell®, a premier brand of chain and fittings from Apex Tool Group, announced its new improved Grade 100 Alloy Sling Hooks.

The new green-painted hooks are available in both clevis and eye styles and are made for use with Grade 80 and Grade 100 chain slings. Latched models feature a new heavy-duty latch and spring assembly.

The new latch and spring assembly is designed for exceptional durability. The heavy-gauge, high-strength steel latch with reinforcing rib provides ultimate rigidity and bending resistance and has a yellow chromate finish for corrosion resistance.

The double-strength spring ensures the latch is held against the hook to securely retain slings and other components. For added durability, the hooks are designed with dual forged support bosses, providing lateral support for precise latch/hook alignment and engagement.

“These U.S.-made Sling Hooks are designed for extreme durability and long life,” said Lyn Bethea, Campbell product manager. “The new heavy-duty latch is stronger than ever before, but is also easy to replace in case of damage.”

With a 4:1 design factor, the new Alloy Sling Hooks meet or exceed the requirements of ASME B30.9 and B30.10. The working load limit ranges from 5,700 lbs. to 35,300 lbs.

Along with Rated Capacity and Made in USA markings, a Latch Code is forged into each hook for easy, accurate replacement ordering.
