USCC Expands Selection of Rigging and Lifting Equipment by Adding Full Line of Crosby® American-Made Chain Slings

Posted on July 22, 2019


US Cargo Control, an authorized Crosby® distributor and a leading supplier of cargo control and rigging and lifting products, now offers the full line of Crosby® chain slings through its e-commerce website. This includes Crosby’s line of adjustable chain slings with the patented Eliminator® chain sling system that is designed to save time and energy in the field while maximizing versatility.

USCC Business Unit Fanatic®, Matt Mitchell, says he’s excited to add to the latest line of Crosby® chain slings to the companies growing selection of rigging and lifting products.

“Crosby® has been a leading manufacturer of rigging and lifting equipment for well over a hundred years and we know that the professionals USCC serves look to them to set the standard for quality, training, and technical expertise in their field. Chain slings are a popular product of ours with thousands sold in 2018. We’re excited to provide our customers with another option when it comes to buying chain slings and the new Eliminator® component on Crosby’s adjustable slings certainly has a lot to like about it.”

So, what’s the big deal about the Eliminator® chain sling system? It’s a revolutionary chain sling fitting that combines the features and functionality of a master link, connecting link, grab hook, and adjuster legs. Similar to other adjustable chain slings, adjustment of the chain length leg can be accomplished by placing the chain in the connector link.

Where the Crosby Eliminator® differs is in the fact that it comes in both single hook and double hook styles.

With single and double-leg Crosby® adjustable slings, the top bail Eliminator® serves as the master link, which removes the need for an additional master link. Three and four-leg Crosby® slings need only one master link to connect the two Eliminator® fittings. This results in a simpler and lighter chain sling with strength and durability that rivals any competitor.

Crosby’s premium rigging slings are manufactured in the USA and custom assembled by US Cargo to meet customer’s exact specifications.

Mitchell says that customers will have a variety of hook and component options to choose from.

“We have a large manufacturing team in-house that is expertly trained on how to assemble these Crosby® chain slings and components. We’ve been fortunate enough to have a Crosby® training team come out to our facility in Iowa to demonstrate best practices for their rigging and lifting products. This really elevated the level of knowledge our manufacturing and sales teams have about Crosby® products. Whether you need chain slings with grab hooks, sling hooks, self-locking hooks, or a combination of these, we can make it happen.”
