Lug Description

Lug comprises the body, retaining head and collar, all manufactured from high strength alloy steel forgings. The retaining head and collar have the same profile as corner box aperture. Retaining head is fixed to the body whilst the collar, in tandem with the retaining head, rotates through a limited arc angle allowing for insertion and retention of the Lug in the corner box. The body contains a lug (shackle bush) for attaching it to a sling or strop via a screw-pin shackle or chain connector.

Basic Lug Geometry

Body designed as a forging and manufactured from alloy steel, heat treated to give maximum strength and resistance to abraision. The lug bush hole can be machined to suit any appropriate connectors. Current production bush hole diameters are 32mm and 38mm for 8.5t and 12t respectively.

Set of 4 (two of each hand) Rated at 8.5t WLL or 12t WLL per lug.

These Lugs were designed to suit 16mm and 20mm chain having SWL's of 8.5t and 12t respectively. For manual use it is important to keep the combined weight of lug plus shackle, or connector, to a minimum. The two lugs normally supplied are the STANDARD and UNIVERSAL types.
STANDARD 8.5t WLL
Lug hole is 32mm dia. hole suitable for US Fed Spec 8.5t shackles and 16mm 8.5t alloy steel chain connector.
Factor of Safety 7
UNIVERSAL 12t WLL
Lug hole is 38mm diameter, suitable for US Fed Spec 12t shackles and 20mm 12t alloy steel chain connector.
Factor of Safety 5
UNIVERSAL 12t WLL
Lug hole is 38mm diameter, suitable for US Fed Spec 12t shackles and 20mm 12t alloy steel chain connector.
Factor of Safety 5

Product Range

Standard and Universal Lugs with typical chain end connectors

Chain end connectors other than those shown here are available but must have the same WLL as the lugs, chain or cable used for lifting slings.
The Universal 12t WLL lug can be connected to US Fed. Spec.12t WLL shackle (not shown here) but the combined weight, together with chain, is considerable and should only be used in exeptional circumstances.
