Crosby’s SL-150 Slide-Loc – a lifting point with a difference – Product News

Crosby’s new SL-150 Slide-Loc is an innovative alternative to standard eye bolts

The SL-150 Slide-Loc can be used with traditional eye bolt methods of rigging except instead of an eye bolt you have a new kind of lifting point. You thread the lifting point into the load, using no tools – your hand fits comfortably around the bail opening, allowing you to effortlessly install the lifting point. The lifting point can be rotated in order to properly align with the sling by disengaging the locking mechanism on your lifting point and rotating it to the required position – all without ever loosening or tightening the bolt, adding shims, or needing tools to get the job done.  The new lifting point maintains perfect alignment with just the slide of the patent pending locking mechanism.

Even with the sling at an angle the lifting point maintains its full working load limit so, there is no need to calculate an adjusted working load to a downgraded lift point rating.

The Crosby SL-150 Slide-Loc has features not found on standard eyebolts that are designed to make lifting faster and easier than before. One of the most notable design elements of the SL-150 Slide-Loc is the integrated locking mechanism for which there is a patent pending. Simply slide the mechanism into one of two positions: against the bolt to lock into the Installation/Removal Position, or away from the bolt to enable the Lifting Position. A red QUIC-Check mark is visible when the Installation Position is engaged, indicating that the bolt is ready to be installed and not ready for lifting. Once properly installed, simply slide the locking mechanism to conceal the QUIC-Check mark and the Crosby Slide-Loc is ready for lifting. The whole process is achieved by hand – no tools are required, making your job easier and faster.

Another important difference between the Crosby Slide-Loc and traditional eyebolts is the generous eye opening. This feature allows for easy rigging access and a firm grip when installing. The bail also swivels 360deg to keep the load properly aligned with the sling leg and maintains full working load limit at any angle. The Crosby SL-150 Slide-Loc is rated at 100% whether in line with the load or at a 45° or 90° angle.

The Slide-Loc is made from forged alloy steel for greater durability, it has easily-read raised lettering showing the name Crosby or CG and PIC Code for material traceability and is available in capacities from 0.5 to 3.2t and in both UNC and Metric Bolt sizes, from 3/8 to 1in & 10 to 24mm.
