What do you do if the chain is twisted? The DGUV (German Social Accident Insurance) has a good reason for stipulating that twisted chains must not be loaded. They can suddenly untwist when lifting and the load can drop down with a jerk. This can result in damage to the chains (until they break) or to the load. Therefore, lifting means must be untwisted before use.
This costs time and effort. Therefore, you finish much more quickly with RUD swivel elements. As an extra element in the chain, they take care of the untwisting completely automatically during the lifting process – or prevent the twisting from the outset. As they have ball bearings, they can rotate under load. However, please note that swivel elements are not suitable for permanent operation under full load.
