The real advantage of these new generation lifting points is essentially that they all offer types which incorporate a link large enough to accept a comparable hook, connected through a bearing to a bolt which screws into the load.

They allow for 360º rotation which removes any alignment problems and the link will tilt to the line of force. Some have a latch to lock the bolt to the link thereby allowing the link to be used as a lever to tighten or slacken the bolt when fitting. They are a portable lifting accessory designed to be easily fitted and removed.

These new links although more expensive than traditional eyebolts. their advantages can easily outweigh their initial cost which is, in any case, often low compared to the value of the machinery they are to lift.
