How To Calculate A Sling Load
Take the guess work out of how much force is exerted on a sling when making a lift with two or more lifting straps.  The angles are not always just 45 or 60 degrees as is often listed on the sling capacity tag.  Here is an easy way to figure out if it will be a safe lift.  More calculation videos from Maintenance Resources.
