The original configuration as conceived by its creator. Simply pass the ring around the stem and through the spliced eye with chafe guard. Position as needed. Easy to remove even after heavy loads. Safe, strong, and simple … this most basic X-Rigging ring configuration has proven itself over and over.
The best application for this sling is a fast attachment for a redirect in a tree. It’s not just an original—it’s functional and versatile as well.
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
