Forged Eye Bolt Working Load Limits


Important:

Working load limits for eye bolts are based on a straight vertical lift in a gradually increasing manner.

Standard forged eye bolts should not be used with angular lifts. If an angular lift is required, a properly seated shoulder pattern machinery eye bolt must be used.

Load limits are based on a safety factor of 5 to 1.
