Below-the-Hook lifting devices and end effectors are used to attach loads to overhead hoisting equipment. They are used to move any load that doesn’t have a lifting lug or a place to attach a single hoist hook to the load. They are commonly used in such applications as plate, steel, glass and drum handling, pipe lifting, stone cutting, as well as odd-shaped loads.


We’d be happy to talk.
