Roundslings are lightweight, with superior flexibility, to conform to the shape of the load. BLP roundslings are constructed from USA made synthetic fibers and are fabricated in our Houston, Texas branch. Roundslings are made using polyester load yarns and seamless tubing with no stitched edges to become snagged. Roundslings are pliable and offer some protection to fragile and odd-shaped loads. Sliding sleeves and synthetic armor pads are also available to protect the roundsling against abrasion damage which can be caused by contact with load edges.
The polyester tubing is color coded for size reference and each roundslings is equipped with a high visibility orange vinyl tag noting name or trademark of manufacturer, manufacturer's stock number, rated loads for the types of hitches used, core & cover material, and number of legs if more than one.
The Model Acronym BLR stands for Bishop Lifting Roundsling.

How are roundslings measured?
Polyester roundslings are measured by laying on a flat surface and measuring from end to end. Not the circumference of the sling.
