Slingmax Covermax

It's officially summer.  Now is the time to ensure that your slings are not subject to harmful UV rays from the sun. 


Slingmax® Twin-Path® Covermax®  material is a heavy-duty, double layer industrial nylon material.  The outside cover is green and the inside cover is red.  If you see any red showing through the green cover, stop using the sling and get a repair evaluation.  This cover has been tested to provide the best ultraviolet (UV) protection and the best abrasion protection of any commercially available synthetic lifting sling.


Slingmax Slings are repairable.  Please contact us if you need more information or to have one of our trained inspectors evaluate your slings.


Sea Catch Toggle Release

The Sea Catch Toggle Release is a mechanical quick release designed exclusively for releasing an object or line under load. With a patented, well-thought-out design, it uses over-center toggle linkage to safely secure a load, release a load and dampen shock. 


What makes the Sea Catch so revolutionary? A well-thought-out design that anticipates reality: heavy sea conditions, corrosive marine environment, quick release kick-back, inadvertent release, and the occasional shock and lock-up of unanticipated overload.

More About Sea Catch


Photo of the Month



Bishop Lifting's engineering team was tasked with creating a stabilizer system for a customers existing lifting beams. Due to the offset loading, they were being pulled out of proper alignment during the lift. Our engineering & fabrication team developed a dual strut system for the bottom of the lifting beams to keep them in alignment during the lift. Click here to see the full photo.
