We are happy to assist our customers in their decision for the best rigging solution. Our wide selection of Crosby turnbuckles along with many rigging hardware and equipment options will allow you to make the best purchasing decision. A Crosby turnbuckle is used to either adjust the length or tension of a rope, or to connect two points together in a system. Most systems also include at least one eye bolt to attach the rigging hook or ring. Talk to one of our experts if you have any questions regarding a Crosby rigging system.

If your particular lift includes a plate clamp, be sure to inspect the plate clamp regularly. If the clamp does not meet the inspection criteria, it needs to be replaced or repaired immediately before further use. Kennedy Wire Rope and Sling Co., Inc. provides inspection and repair services for plate lifting clamps, and will find a solution to meet the needs of your application.
