2-Leg, 3-Leg & 4-Leg Wire-Rope Bridles

Bridle slings are made with lengths of wire rope, synthetic webbing or chains attached to a top point and are designed to lift items that have fixed lifting points. This configuration offers a higher weight capacity and better distribution of weight during the lift. The legs (2, 3, or 4) of a bridle sling can accommodate a wide variety of end fittings, the most common being hooks, sewn loops, or links.
