RUD Hooks / end fittings.

Safe connection with the load.

End components are the connections between the lifting means and lifting point on the load. No matter whether hook, dumper truck suspension ring, shackle or connection locks, all lifting means have to be connected to the load with the aid of an end component. The end component is usually connected to the specially designed lifting point.

Through its unique product and material portfolio – including numerous components for lifting means – RUD can supply the matching solution for every purpose of application. This wide portfolio is guaranteed by the material qualities VIP (Grade 100) and ICE (Grade 120).
