Loose gear, also known as rigging hardware, is a collection of various equipment used in the rigging and lifting industry. It includes items such as shackles, hooks, swivels, chains, and other devices that are used to connect ropes, slings, and other lifting equipment to loads.
One of the main advantages of loose gear is its versatility, which allows it to be used in a wide range of applications, including construction, manufacturing, shipbuilding, and more. They can handle various weight capacities and sizes of loads, and can be used in both vertical and horizontal positions.
Loose gear is typically made of durable materials such as steel or alloy and have been designed to withstand harsh environments and heavy loads. They also come in different types and sizes to meet different requirements and can be customized to meet specific needs.
Investing in high-quality loose gear is crucial for ensuring the safety and efficiency of lifting operations and also helps to reduce costs associated with frequent replacements and maintenance. It can also help to improve productivity and reduce the risk of injury.
