Miscellaneous Tree Rigging Slings

In addition to the standard dead-eye tree rigging slings, or whoopie or loopie tree rigging slings, there are a variety of specialty slings which are used for tree rigging operations including limb balancers, speed-line chokers, and crane slings.

Limb Balancer Eye Sling

Limb Balancer Eye Sling

3/8” x 20' Sling
1/2” x 20' Sling

This modified eye sling is generally attached to a rigging line with a prusik and then to the limb to better balance the tip and base with a single rigging line. Extra long length and eye make this sling ill-suited for attaching a block. Useful for precision removals when control of the limb being removed is critical. Hand-spliced from Samson Tenex.

3/8" sling has a WLL in choker of 1,008 lb.

1/2" sling has a WLL in choker of 2,000 lb.

11” Standard
22” Zipper

Screamers are single-use energy absorbing devices which have been used in rock and ice climbing on marginal anchors for decades, ”I started using them in tree work 10 years ago,” says veteran Arborist Dave Stice. ”They are an important item to have in the toolbox for extreme situations.”

Screamers can be used in your rigging system to reduce peak forces by up to 600 lb. They are great for extremely tight drop zones, situations where you don't have room to let the rope run, or for dead and decaying trees. If you are working with new groundsmen, using one of these in the system can avoiding the whiplash effect if the rope is not let run properly.

11” Standard & Shorty Screamers activate at loads greater than 2 kN, reduce peak load 3-4 kN. Runner strength 26 kN (5,395 lb).

22” Zipper Screamers activates at loads greater than 2 kN, reduces peak load 4-8 kN. Runner strength 26 kN (5,395 lb).
