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.
