RUD 1/2 in. Swivel Eye Bolt
VRS-F StarPoint, 1/2″ – 13 UNC Thread, Working Load Limit (WLL) 1,650 lbs
RUD-Chain Inc has improved on the traditional eye bolt with the development of their swivel eye bolt, the StarPoint. The StarPoint is the perfect solution to eliminate the unsafe and rigid style eye bolt because it was designed to adjust to the direction of the pull so that the working load limit (WLL) is never diminished.
The first things most people notice about the RUD StarPoint are the distinct florescent pink color and it’s unique shape. The distinct florescent pink powder-coating changes its color when temperatures exceed 200 degrees Celsius. If the StarPoint reaches temperatures of 400 degrees C, the color will change to a deep black with small bubbles, indicating that it has been over-heated.The StarPoint is rated the nominal WLL or the working load limit at the worst case scenario, so it surpasses the standard eye bolt when it comes to over-all performance and capability.
The unique star-shaped design of the StarPoint allows it to be unitized in a way that is not possible with the standard eye bolt. The pull on standard eye bolts is restricted to the plane of the eye but the StarPoint VRS adjusts 360 degrees to align with the direction of pull. A non-vertical lift with the standard eye bolt can cause the eye bolt to bend and break and possibly result in damage to the load or injure someone.
The StarPoint will cost more than the conventional eye bolt, but is an economically wise choice in comparison to the standard eye bolt. The StarPoint is available in a variety of sizes and is priced between a forged eye bolt and a swiveling hoist ring, making it the perfect choice for preventing valuable loads from being damaged and eliminating unsafe lifts.
