Right handling of attachment points

For reasons of safety, the right handling of attachment points is essential both for humans and materials.

That means: The number and arrangement of the attachment points have to be selected in such way that the load will not change into an unforeseen position during transport. Attachment points in strongly soiled areas or in areas where a point of interference occurs should be replaced with locking screws which should be color-coded to allow for an easy retrieval of the boreholes for the attachment point.

Please also note the following directions and instructions on the use and fastening of attachment points.

Correct mounting and fastening of attachment points

The attachment points must be affixed in such way that they can be reached easily and without obstacles for attaching and removing the sling gear.

The attachment point must not be obstructed by other constructional elements. It must be capable of aligning in all directions together with the sling gear. Any deflection or any slinging at sharp-edged components is not permitted.

The attachment points must be affixed in such way that no dangerous points (bruising, shearing, trapping or bumping) are produced endangering the slinger. They must not jeopardize the transport by protruding.

Turn the bolt completely to the plane contact surface and tighten it with the specified torque. Secure detachable attachment points remaining at the load against unscrewing and retighten them before the initial operation.

Affix inserted attachment points using a nut according to EN 4032, where the projecting end of the thread does not exceed twice the thread pitch P.


Before use, the attachment points must be checked, e.g. by the slinger, for the bolt fit, strong corrosion, incipient cracks, deformations, clearance.

The attachment points must not be loaded in excess of the Working Load Limit (WLL).

During the construction of machine parts, entire machines or the like, the attachment points are already computed and designated for ensuring a safe and stable installation or transport of the load.
The attachment points EN 31000 can be affixed non-detachably (welded) or detachably (bolted).
When slinging the load all attachment points provided by the manufacturer have to be used in accordance with the specifications. Do not use eye bolts or lifting eye nuts that are unsuitable for such purpose.

Did you know ...

… that the working load limit can be increased using the Theipa Point sling swivel by at least 25% with retention of the known functional dimensions? The forged hexagonal bolt at the swivel body allows for an easier assembly and disassembly; bruise marks prevent kinks of the link; a galvanic coating provides protection against corrosion.
