The Twin-Path® Adjustable Bridle (TPXA with K-Spec® fiber core yarn or TPA with polyester core yarn) is a two-leg bridle made with a Twin-Path® roundsling and adjustable bridle ring.  When tension is applied to the Twin-Path® Adjustable Bridle, it self-adjusts until the lifting point is over the center of gravity (COG). This allows the two legs to be adjusted for a level lift without the need for custom slings or hardware.

Twin-Path Adjustable Bridle

The Twin-Path® Adjustable Bridle Sling is a multi-purpose rigging tool and it’s important that it is used properly. The adjustment ring has a double leg for the heavy side of the load and a single leg on the lighter side.

See the Adjustable Bridle Product Manual for more information.

Twin-Path Adjustable Bridle
If the lifting points are an equal distance from the center of gravity then the Twin-Path® Adjustable can be hooked-up with the double or single leg on either lifting point.

Twin-Path Adjustable Bridle
If the lifting points are an equal distance on either side of the center of gravity but one is higher, then the double leg should be attached to the higher lifting point.

Twin-Path Adjustable Bridle
If one of the lifting points is closer to the center of gravity, then attach the double leg to this lifting point. It will have the highest weight concentration. If the Twin-Path® Adjustable is attached so that the single leg is nearest the center of gravity, the lift cannot be made.

Twin-Path Adjustable Bridle
The Twin-Path® Adjustable Bridle should be used in applications where the double leg horizontal angle is greater than 45°. Always connect above the center of gravity. If connections are made below the center of gravity, then the load may turn when lifted.

Warning: Sling can fail if damaged, misused or overloaded. Inspect before use. Damaged sling shall not be used. Use only if trained. Do not exceed rated capacity. Protect sling from being cut by load edges, corners, protrusions and abrasive surfaces. Avoid exposure to acid, alkali and temperatures over 180°F. DEATH or INJURY can occur from improper use or maintenance.
