    I know this is a repeat question but multiple search functions failed me. How are you guys tying into the lower block which a crane is running multiple part lines. I have multiple ideas just wanting to know what you guys have done over your many years of experience. Thanks

    You are letting me down. More or less bumping this thread in hopes of some help.

    Yup, we use chains so the hook never needs to be unlocked

    So you also run another steel rigging ring in the hook just for tie in?
