Accessories for synthetic and natural rope

Rope accessories

Our most commonly sold synthetic and natural ropes come in coils but are also popular in more specific lengths with additional fittings like synthetic rope slings. Our specialists can attach various fittings to rope ends according to customers’ specific needs and the requirements of the industry or area of application.

These marine fittings include creating a loop via a splice on the eye featuring the spliced thimble or sleeve, or by splicing the rope. Hawsers usually come with a loop that is spliced and protected with a polyester sheath on one or both ends to facilitate mooring to a bitt or bollard at port. Also, Dyneema rope can be whipped or partially coated in a protective sheath.

These rope slings also come equipped with safety hooks or shackles as well as integrated rings or any other item of rigging hardware.

We supply all these accessories.

Sling saver connector

A synthetic sling saver is nothing without its end fixtures! Sling saver connectors are rings placed at the end of the sling saver to allow for easy and safe stowage. These are shackle-like rings that are attached or removed with a nut or eyenut, to which a lifting hook or special link can be added, or any other part used for handling.
