All master links are sized to accommodate heavy-duty thimbles.
If thimbles are not required, a smaller master link may be appropriate.
**If thimble is required at the top, these sizes must use an A-345 Master Link Assembly.

All slings are proof-tested to 2 times working load limit. Design factor is 5:1.
