Designed to grip or choke the load, All Purpose Choker Slings are ideally suited to lifting bar stock, beams, lumber, bundles of pipe and similar material. The tapered sleeve splice, as well as the anchor hitch, Type 17-9-5, allows close snubbing of load, insuring a positive grip. The use of sliding choker hooks increases sling life and permits faster handling.
