Components of Lifting Sockets


The body of a lifting socket serves as the primary structural component, providing the framework for the entire lifting assembly. Constructed from durable materials such as high-grade steel, the body is engineered to withstand the stresses and forces encountered during lifting operations.

Lifting Loop or Eye:

The lifting loop or eye is an integral feature of the lifting socket, providing a secure attachment point for lifting hardware such as hooks, shackles, or chains. This component is carefully designed and positioned to ensure optimal weight distribution and stability during lifting.

Threaded Insert:

In some lifting fixture designs, a threaded insert is incorporated into the body to facilitate a secure connection with lifting hardware. The threaded insert allows for easy installation and removal of lifting accessories, providing added versatility and convenience in various lifting applications.


Lifting device include an anchor mechanism to ensure reliable embedding and retention within concrete or other structural materials. The anchor is designed to prevent slippage or dislodgment during lifting, providing a stable and secure attachment point for the load.

Grout Pocket:

Some lifting attachments feature a grout pocket, which serves as a reservoir for grout or adhesive to enhance the bond between the socket and the surrounding concrete or substrate. The grout pocket helps to distribute load forces evenly and minimize the risk of failure or detachment during lifting operations.

Cover Cap:

To protect the lifting attachment from damage and debris accumulation, a cover cap may be included to encase the lifting mechanism when not in use. The cover cap helps to prolong the lifespan of the lifting socket and ensures reliable performance over time.

Types of Lifting Socket

There are several types of sockets available, each designed for specific applications and requirements. Here are some common types:

Threaded Lifting Sockets:

These sockets feature a threaded insert for easy installation into precast concrete elements. They provide a secure connection for lifting hardware such as threaded lifting loops or eyebolts.

Flat Lifting Sockets:

These are designed for embedding into thin precast concrete panels or elements. They have a low-profile design to minimize protrusion and are typically used in applications where space is limited.

Socket Anchor Lifting Sockets:

Socket anchor lifting sockets are embedded directly into concrete structures and feature an anchor or reinforcement mechanism to provide additional strength and stability during lifting.

Swivel Lifting Sockets:

Swivel lifting attachment feature a swivel mechanism that allows the lifting hardware to rotate freely, providing flexibility and ease of positioning during lifting operations. They are often used in applications where precise alignment is required.

Bridge Lifting Sockets:

Bridge sockets are designed for lifting and handling bridge elements such as beams and deck panels. They are typically larger and more robust than standard lifting sockets to accommodate the weight and size of bridge components.

Adjustable Lifting Sockets:

Adjustable sockets feature a telescoping or adjustable design that allows for variable lifting heights. They are ideal for applications where the lifting point needs to be adjusted to accommodate different load sizes or configurations.

Recessed Lifting Sockets:

Recessed lifting attachments are embedded into concrete structures and feature a recessed design to provide a flush surface when not in use. They are commonly used in architectural applications where aesthetics are important.
