Very important. Improper position or orientation of the hoist ring can greatly reduce the load carrying limit of the hoist ring. Please refer to the DME Company and manufacturer’s websites for more details on recommendations for hoist ring position and orientation. Hoist Ring assemblies are proof tested to 200% of rated load capacity. Certificate of proof test accompanies product in packaging. Hoist Ring components are heat treated, magnetic particle inspected, proof load tested, and certified to manufacturing specifications.
Note: If you are using DME metric-type hoist rings in North America or South America, it is recommended to use the metric-type hoist rings offered by DME USA and Canada, as shown in the DME Mold Components Catalog. It is also recommended to use hoist rings instead of eye bolts. Eye bolts do not offer the same load carrying limits as hoist rings, particularly when side-mounted relative to the direction of lift.
