Swivels allow lifted loads to rotate without twisting the lifting line, preventing over-twist stress on the cable, wire rope, or chain. Lexco Cable offers numerous models, including drop light-duty and heavy-duty swivels. We carry both domestic (Made in the USA) and imported swivels.

  • Drop forged swivel models include Eye & Eye, Chain, Jaw & Eye, and Safety Swivel.
  • Light-duty swivel models include Open-Eye, Closed-Eye, and Plastic Snap with Swivel.
  • Heavy-duty swivel models include Eye & Eye, Jaw & Eye, and Chain.
  • Forged galvanized swivels meet Federal Spec RR-C-271D Type III.

If you are lifting a load and are trying to prevent your load from rotating, you may want to consider a rotation-resistant wire rope.

All our swivel models are available in bulk quantities, or as part of completed cable assemblies. Lexco specializes in cable assembly fabrication to save our customers time and money in additional production costs.
