Single Part, Mechanical Spliced Slings
Eyes are formed using the flemish eye splice. End are secured by pressing a metal sleeve, either steel or aluminum, over the ends of the strands of the splice. Pull is directly along the centerline of rope and eye. Gives most efficient use of rope capacity, is economical.
Flemish eye splice – In the standard flemish eye mechanical splice, rope is separated into two parts – 3 adjacent strands, and 3 adjacent stands and the core. These two parts are then re-laid back in opposite directions to form an eye, and ends are secured with a pressed metal sleeve.
