    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for the design, manufacture, marking and testing of forged lifting hooks having a working load limit of not more than 60t, for use with wire rope, sheave blocks, serial hoists or general engineering applications. It covers large eye hooks and shank hooks.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for forged lifting hooks having a working load limit of not more than 60 t, for use with wire rope, sheave blocks, serial hoists, or general engineering applications. It includes large eye hooks and shank hooks.NOTES:1 Hooks for use with Grade T chain are covered by AS 3776.2 Guidance on information that should be supplied with enquiries and orders is given in Appendix A.3 Standards for components used in lifting systems are listed in Appendix F.
