Lift-It Sets Another Milestone

5 in MasterlinkThe design and fabrication experts at Lift-It Manufacturing have set another milestone in what could be considered the largest, synthetic bridle fabricated.  The 108 ton rated bridle featured a 5 inch diameter masterlink.  The link weighs 516 Lbs. and was selected to support and collect the two high capacity slings. The sling legs are high performance, Twin-Path® Extra Slings featuring K-Spec® high performance fiber.

Spatial and pressure calculations were done in the design development stages by Mike Gelskey, Jr. and the sling was sold to Kennedy Wire Rope, Corpus Christi, TX.  Lift-It CEO and founder, Michael Gelskey, Sr. remarked, “I am extremely proud of our team in completing this assembly.  I have been in the rigging business for 40 years and have never seen a 5 inch masterlink.  When they say everything is big in Texas, they are not kidding”.  Lift-it Manufacturing is a worldwide leader in the supply of quality rigging and rigging training for 34 years.
