Labels

A large, easy-to-read care label is sewn into each sling with the front identifying the sling type and name as well as the size. For washable slings, the label stands up to repeated laundering.

The reverse of each label provides Safe Working Load (SWL), laundering information and contact details.

All slings also include two additional labels to help  ensure proper replacement scheduling: a size label with month and year of manufacture, and a service label, including serial number, for recording routine inspection.
