Offers Increased Working Load Limit by 50% more than the LBS

RUD know how important safety is in lifting which is why we have produced further product improvements to one of our leading lifting points. The LBS “RUD lug”, together with the RBS Eye Plate has gone through a significant upgrade – the biggest change since the product line was first introduced more than 25 years ago.

To align with RUD’s leading Grade 100 VIP Sling Chain system; the LBS & RBS ranges have been re-designed and released as the VLBS & VRBS. The working Load Limits (WLL’s) have increased significantly and the WLL(s) now align and match in with the RUD® Grade 100 chain ratings.

The VLBS load ring is forged out of the high strength material CrNiMo. It provides up to 50% higher working load limit, is loadable in any direction, can be tilted 180°and has a safety factor of 4:1.


The two protective support lugs, inside the load ring, are patented and improve the connection with the attachment as well as protecting the clamping spring. The optimized support shape at the suspension ring enables a strong support at loads 90° to the plane of the eye.


The welding block is forged out of quality welding material 1.0577+N (St 52-3) and clearly stamped with an identification number for the permissible WLL (Working Load Limit). The patented distance lugs assist in achieving the correct root weld.
