If you own or use a below the hook lifting device it is important to understand the standards!
So, what are Below the hook devices? They are structural and mechanical lifting devices (spreader beams, lifting beams, C-hooks, plate clamps, pallet lifters, coil grabs, etc.), vacuum lifters, lifting magnets, scrap and material-handling grapples. CRANE 1 follows the guidelines set forth in the ASME B30.20 standards. Below are highlights of the standard, however, the full ASME B30.20 standard can be downloaded here.
