Below-the-Hook Inspection

Below-the-hook inspections

This inspection has been designed to inspect the removable devices attached to your crane hook during operation. The inspection identifies deficiencies and deviations from local regulations.

Inspected devices may include:

  • Accessories such as chain alloy, wire rope slings, metal mesh, natural or synthetic fiber rope, or synthetic web
  • Production lifting devices such as spreader beams, coil hooks, sheet lifters, vacuum lifters or magnets
  • Customer lifting devices such as balancers or custom-built maintenance accessories

Visual and operational below-the-hook inspections

The visual inspection looks for wear, defects, deformation, stretching, deterioration and other issues related to the type of use. Operational tests will also be performed on powered devices such as magnets and rotational spreaders.
