Benefits of a Swivel Lifting Eye
A swivel eye bolt offers many advantages over a standard, fixed eye bolt. They are able to swivel and rotate, often through a complete 360 degrees. The lifting eye is attached to the screw thread with bearings which allows them to swivel freely. When an appropriate hook is attached to the swivel eye and the load's forces are applied the link will swivel and tilt into the direction of the pulling action.
Standard eye bolts are normally only able to be used for inline lifting operations. So therefore the swivel variety has much more scope for a variety of different lifting tasks. Specifically angled lifting.
Some types of these swivelling eye bolts incorporate a locking latch. This enables the eye to be locked into place and remain stationary.
Although swivel eye bolts are usually more costly than the standard variety there uses can quickly outweigh the cost.
Branded Swivel Eye Bolt & Hoist Ring
Branding is less important than the specifications of the bolt in question when choosing products from this range, yet even so you may have a preference for a particular manufacturer, in which case we can help you meet it.
Making Eyebolt choices
Buying the right swivel eye bolts involves paying close attention not only to the WLL but also to the thread type. We stock units with metric thread as well as UNC thread setups, so you can quickly identify the most compatible product for your purposes.
The material from which the bolt is made will also be a consideration that influences your decision. If you are looking for corrosion resistance, then stainless steel will be advantageous. If you want to limit wear and tear caused by contact with other materials, a swivel eye bolt with a painted outer surface for added durability could be at the top of your wish list; it really depends on what you need.
You may also like to check out our collection of standard eye bolts which are generally the cheaper alternative, yet no less effective for every day lifting operations. Lifting shackles and lifting slings are other types of loose lifting gear that we can supply to enhance your swivel eye bolts. We also have numerous types of hoisting equipment should you require these to.
