Bolt-on Swivel Load Rings with Link - RUD VLBG with optional bolt lengths.

  • Lifting points rotates 360°. Suspension ring pivots 180°
  • Safety Factor of 4:1
  • Captive grade 10.9 RUD bolt, but exchangeable with an ICE-Bolt made out of patented steel with special corrosion protection Corrud-DT. Non-hazardous deep temperature usage down to -60°; higher toughness and therefore higher bending strength as well as less wear occurance. Original ICE-Bolt is available as a spare part. Clear marking at the bolt head: RUD, ICE, thread size, batch no., class of strength.
  • Clamping spring - Works as a noise reduction and holds the suspension ring in the requested position; therefore simple hinge of lifting mean possible respectivley flat design if turned down.
  • Clear marking of the minimum WLL for all loading directions
  • Available as:
    • Standard Metric Thread (DIN EN 13)
    • Metric Fine Thread (DIN EN 13)
    • Coarse Pitch Thread UNC (ANSI B1.1)
    • Fine Thread UNF (ANSI B1.1)
  • Variable bolt lengths available for tapped or through holes.
  • Tested and certified by DGUV Testing specifications: GS-OA-15-04:2012-05 Certificate No.: OA 1451016
  • Quick and easy installation with just one bolt connection.
  • Assembly with flat / ring wrench or alien key possible.
  • Hand tightening with appropriate wrench is sufficient for a singular lift.
  • Please observe torque instructions when lifting point is permanently installed resp. at constant swivelling operations and tilting/ turning actions.
  • RUD supplies the Vario length complete with a washer and crack-detected nut corresponding to DIN EN ISO 7042 (DIN 980) or will be supplied with a crack inspected collar nut acc. to
    DIN 6331.
  • If the VLBG is used exclusively for lashing, the value of the working load limit can be doubled. LC = permissible lashing capacity  = 2 x WLL
  • Commonly referred to as pinkies in the offshore oil and gas industry.
360 Degree Rotation & 180 Degree Pivot

Operating Temperatures

Due to the DIN/EN bolts that are used in the VLBG, the working load limit must be reduced accordingly:

  • -40°C  to 100°C --> no reduction (-40°F to 212°F)
  • 100°C to 200°C --> minus 15 % (212°F to 392°F)
  • 200°C to 250°C --> minus 20 % (392°F to 482°F)
  • 250°C to 350°C --> minus 25 % (482°F to 662°F)
  • Temperatures above 350°C (662°F) are not permitted

Proof Testing

There is no requirement to Proof Test RUD Products, either Bolt or Weldable after Installation if the user instructions for welding are carried out correctly. The welding should be carried out by a suitably qualified and competent welder/person. The supporting structure, or the load, should be of adequate strength to take the stresses involved and this is the responsibility of the engineering designer or equivalent.

RUD Lifting and Lashing Products are Manufactured and conform to EN 1677. No further Proof Testing in the field is required. In fact it would be considered that the Product had been overloaded if a Load more than the recommended Working Load Limit had been applied. RUD products should be regularly inspected in line with the requirements of LOLER and as per our user instructions at intervals decided by a competent person.


LiftingSafety Review:

The VLBG swivel hoist ring is by far the most popular swivel load ring that we sell, it is versitile as the bolt can be replaced with a fastner to suit your application; this is what the manufacturer says though always check with us first and we will seek confirmation from the manufacturer.
