Eyenuts or lifting eyes as they are otherwise known are a very commonly used rigging supply or lifting component. Chain and Rope Suppliers stock a wide selection of lifting eyes or eyenuts including galvanised eyenuts zinc plated eyenuts, self-coloured eyenuts and stainless steel eyenuts. Our eyenuts are available in metric and imperial thread. Most common is our metric thread range of collared eyenuts to BS 4278 Part 1 1984. These are all available fully tested and certified with a vertical safe working load (S.W.L) of 0.1T, 0.15T, 0.33T, 0.4T, 0.8T, 1T, 1.6T, 2.5T, 4T, 5T, 6.3T, 8T, 10T and 12.5T.

Often machinery to be hoisted or lifted will have anchor points, lifting points, hoisting points or rigging points. These points are generally a metric threaded hole or threaded stud which our collared eyenuts thread onto to provide a connection point for the hoist equipment being used in the rigging operation. Eyenuts are designed specifically for a straight pull. The safe working load (S.W.L) of a collared eyenuts is greatly reduced if the pull is not in a straight line. The purpose of the collar on a collared eyenut is that the eyenut is tightened so the collar sits tight against the surface of the anchor point this also greatly affects the safe working load (S.W.L) of the eyenut.
