Usually when making a lift or utilizing a lift plan, the last item thought of or purchased are Hoist Rings. I’m not sure why, but I assume people just think they’ll be readily available and when issuing a PO, they’ll arrive quickly. Many end users of Hoist Rings are realizing that isn’t always the case in the last year or so. Why is this? Many Hoist Ring manufacturers, when asked to quote, are giving lead times of 16 to 20 weeks or more for standard items. The pandemic can be blamed for some of this in that the raw materials needed to make Hoist Rings aren’t always readily available. This is a huge inconvenience for the Hoist Ring users. It can hold up projects, delay lifts, and ultimately cost them a lot of time and money. When this happens there are really only two options to consider….bite the bullet and wait, or try to find a suitable alternative that IS available and comparable to what they need.
