The beauty of tools like the X-Rigging ring lies not only in how they are designed to be used but in how creative riggers can be with it. The X-Rigging ring 36” loop can be added to rigging systems in any number of ways to accomplish the goal of safe, efficient rigging operations.
Properly attach it to a rigging block sling and make a heavy-duty retrievable rigging point. Add midline to the lead of the rigging line and take spider-leg balancing to a whole new level! Add to another X-Rigging ring sling and make a retrievable rigging redirect . The possibilities are unique and limited only by your ingenuity and the demands of the job!
Brought to the tree industry by J. David Driver, the X-Man, the X-Rigging rings are simple in concept, brilliant in function. The rings are made with milled aluminum, then hard-coat anodized, and then polished–making them strong, durable and low friction. Spliced in-house by SherrillTree with Tenex by Samson for reliability and quality you can count on.
The uses for rigging applications are many. Redirect, fair lead, speedline, you name it. The possibilities are as varied as the gals and guys removing trees!
Perhaps its best property is the most subtle one—through the use of strategically placed X-Rigging rings, riggers aloft can devise rigging systems that work with the tree’s natural strength and structure. Rope and rope angles can be managed in and around the tree, in and out of blocks and other rigging points. Weak points can be strengthened or avoided. Loads can be placed in compression on the tree, and trees can be removed safely and effectively. X-Rigging slings now available with the XL Beast Ring for increased friction, and increased bend radius.
