    57.7% of total load (eg. 577lbs on 1000lbs load)

    70.5% of total load (eg. 707lbs on 1000lbs load)

  17. What is the load on each sling at completely vertical to seperate hooks?
    50% of total load (eg. 500lbs on 1000lbs load)
  18. What is the recommended angle for multiple slings to a single hook?
    60', creates equalateral triangle
  19. Sling Stress Formula

    T = (W/N) x (L/V)

    T= tension/sling in lbs
    W= weight in lbs
    N = number of legs
    L = choker length in feet
    V = vertical height from hookup to load
    • Rule of Thumb:
    • WWL Slings = D2x6
    • WWL Wire Slings = D2x8
  20. When should wire ropes be replaced?
    • - 6 or more broken wires in one rope lay
    • - 3 or more broken wires in one strand of one rope lay
    • - outer diameter wire wear is at 1/3 of total
  21. What is the standard amount of stretch in new wire rope?
    • 6 stranded rope = 6" per 100' of rope
    • 8 stranded rope = 9-10" per 100' of rope

  23. Image Upload 4
    Round pin shackle
  24. Image Upload 5
    safety shackle
  25. What is the proper placement of a shackle on the hook?
    pin on the hook, load on the body of shackle
  26. What is the load limit of a u-bolt or crosby clip?
    80% of wire strength

  27. What is a sheave and what is the ROT for them?
    the pulley part of the block that carries the rope.

    ROT = shoiuld be at least 20 times rope diameter
  28. Shoulder type eyebolts should only be used with angular pull greater than?
  29. When slings with hooks are used in a bridle sling arrangement, they should always be:
    turned out and have safety latches
  30. The only chain suitable for construction hoisting is made from?
    alloy steel
  31. Chain that needs to be repaired must be repaired by?
    the manufacturer
  32. A shackle is sized by?
    diameter of the bow section
  33. equlaizer beams are typically used in conjunction with:
    dual hoist hooks
  34. When reeving or lacing rope through sheaves in a block and tackle system, fasten the dead end of the rope to the:
  35. A wedge socket is used to attach:
    a headache ball, a swivel, a hook
  36. To maintain the highest capacity of a sling, what is the minimum length of contact of wire rope with a softener?
    1 rope lay length
  37. in a bridle sling arrangement, the stress load on each sling leg is equal to the weight of hte load, when the sling angle is:
    30' from horizontal
  38. The recommended sling angle when using a two part bridal sling is:
    60' angle from the horizontal
  39. The ROT for the minimum sheave diamter is the rope diameter times:
  40. Shoulder-type eyebolts should only be used with angular pull (from the horizontal) gerater than:
  41. When slings with hooks are used in a bridle sling arrangement, they should always be:
    turned out and have safety latches
  42. Which type of block is designed to change the angle of pull for wire rope?
    snatch block

    gross weight
  47. Do crane load charts have seperate areas for strength and stability?
  48. What is the least amount of rollers required when moving a load with heavy wall pipe?
  49. What is best used to move a very heavy load precisely to its final position?
