Because of the small openings in the eyes of this sling, it is often necessary to use shackles to attach the sling



Thimble eye slings are excellent for use in applications with limited clearance at attachment points, expecially where the attachment points are a pin, bolt, clevis jaw, or similar. The thimbles help prolong the life of the sling eyes as well as preventing deformation of the eye under load. Small-diameter thimble eye slings also find wide use as theatrical rigging components, though most theatrical rigging is painted black, and these slings are unpainted.

While thimble eye slings offer advantages, the thimble openings are much smaller than standard eyes. Particular attention must therefore be given to the size of the intended attachment points for the eye. In addition, thimble eye slings are often installed as a semi-permanent assemblies in other equipment, and in such cases, length of the sling is critical. For these reasons, Rigging Central fabricates thimble-thimble slings to order. Please call us at 888-503-7888 to discuss your specific requirements. We stock a large inventory of wire rope sizes and thimbles, and in most cases we can fabricate and ship your sling the same day.
