Rope Logic's X-Rigging Triple Ring Sling
Rope Logic's X-Rigging Triple Ring Sling Tenex 3/4" x 5ft
2 Large rings and 1 Beast ring hand spliced on a 5ft Samson Tenex Sling.
Brought to the tree industry by J. David Driver, the X-Man, the X-Rigging rings are simple in concept, brilliant in function. The rings are made with milled aluminum, then hard-coat anodized, and then polished–making them strong, durable and low friction. Spliced in-house by SherrillTree with Tenex by Samson for reliability and quality you can count on.
The uses for rigging applications are many. Redirect, fair lead, speedline, you name it. The possibilities are as varied as the gals and guys removing trees!
Perhaps its best property is the most subtle one—through the use of strategically placed X-Rigging rings, riggers aloft can devise rigging systems that work with the tree’s strength and structure. Rope and rope angles can be managed in and around the tree, in and out of blocks and other rigging points. Weak points can be strengthened or avoided. Loads can be placed in compression on the tree, and trees can be removed safety and effectively.
Notice: When evaluating rigging systems it is necessary to recognize the capacity of each individual component. As with pulleys, when running lowering ropes through Rigging Thimbles the smaller the bend radius the greater the lose of load capacity. Slings with multiple Rigging Thimble will create a larger bend radius for you lowering ropes. In systems where you use a single Rigging Thimble it is important to recognize the reduced capacity in your rigging system.
