Sling capacity – basket hitch

If the sling is used in a basket hitch (cradle) around a round load which is at least ten times diameter of the sling diameter, the load factor is 2. The capacity doubles.
Which also means that if you back-hook the chain back to the ring and use similar diameter shackle at the bottom of the loop of chain, chain’s capacity DOESN’”T double!berryjam.ru
