English term or phrase:Choke Hitch
A choke hitch is made by taking a sling, which has two eyes on each end, and a length of wire rope in the middle, and going under the load, taking the eye that has passed under the load and passed through the eye of the other end of the wire rope sling and attaching one end to the crane -- to the crane so that when the load is lifted, the eye of the sling forms a choke hold on the load... It slides down and tightens up onto the load and actually chokes the load. It has a bite on the load when it's lifted.
