In an effort to make sure Crosby users are up-to-date with the latest in material handling, Crosby has developed the CrosbyIP® Clamp training mini-course. This course provides brief instruction on the features and applications of CrosbyIP® vertical lifting clamps. The 5-minute mini-course discusses clamps used for single-point picks, lifts with multiple vertical drop lines, clamps used for multiple-leg slings, and clamps used in vertical applications where the material must not be scratched or marred. Instruction on the correct usage of load direction charts for vertical lifting clamps is also discussed.
Crosby has once again revolutionized the inspection and identification process with the release of Crosby QUIC-CHECK® Version 4. The system has been completely redesigned to streamline field processes while collecting valuable product information during every step of the process. A mobile application, compatible with both iOS and Android™ platforms, allows use of devices you may already own, reducing your cost of entry.

Kyle Teynor's Crosby tattoo is a striking example of the passion we at Crosby see for our brand on a regular basis—only Kyle took his enthusiasm into art. “I really don’t trust anything that’s not a Crosby, if it’s going to be anywhere near my head or above me," says Kyle. "Most of the people I’ve worked for, most of the contractors, that’s all we use is Crosby.” The tattoo is inspired by a 6.5 ton Crosby shackle. It’s this level of excitement and loyalty that we see in our customers each day that fuels our passion to continue with the Crosby tradition: providing innovation, selection, quality, and value to our customers worldwide—yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Next time you are in The National WWII Museum in New Orleans look up! The "Flying Fortress" above you, along with the other planes in the National WWII Museum, are suspended using Crosby rigging products.
Roland Ross, Crosby Director of International Sales, was visiting the museum when he snapped these photos. They show our famous "Red Pin" shackles, wire rope thimbles and master links in service holding up the B-17 heavy bomber "My Gal Sal". The plane and its crew were forced to make an emergency landing on the Greenland ice cap during WWII while in route to England. The crew was saved after 10 days but the plane was left behind for 50 years until it was recovered and restored to serve as a monument to the brave crews that served in WWII Army Air Force.
If in New Orleans visit this wonderful museum.
