Looking into providing a carabiner style hook for dragline winching applications, wherein the hook latch could carry some of the load. This is similar to a carabiner, but with much higher loads. Could ASME B30.10 used for rating the hook with the latch open, or closed, or both?
Through reading the standard it states that the latch shall be designed to retain items under slack conditions, and it is not intended to support the load.
Should the device be rated under ANSI Z359.12 and called a carabiner?
What are the thoughts out there?
