Lifting Points for bolting STARPOINT - VRS

Product enquiry

...the absolute STAR among eye bolts

Complies with the machinery directives 2006/42/EG

Star shaped design, a clear distinction from the DIN 580 eye bolt. With a striking fluorescent pink powder coating. Identification: Clear WLL indication for the most unfavorable load direction F (not permissible for DIN 580).

Forged material 1.6541, high tensile and annealed, 100% electromagnetic crack detected according to EN 1677-1 and with a 4 :1 design factor.

Choose the attachment point in such a way that the introduced forces are accomodated by the work piece without being deformed. Make sure the bolting surface is plain. Ensure an appropriate bore depth to facilitate an optimal sitting of the engaging surface.

Work piece material, at least 1.0037 (St 37). For light metals, nonferrous heavy metals and grey cast iron, the thread type allocation must be done in such a way that, the WLL of the thread type fulfils the requirements of the respective work piece.

Without an additional washer, screw the VRS into the work piece until the seat - engaging surface of the Hexagon socket bolt evenly lies on the surface of the work piece. If the VRS permanently to remain at the point of force introduction, it must be tightened with a torque of 5 Nm. The thread bore countersink is equal to the effective diameter of the thread. Always pay attention that the Hexagon socket bolt is tightened.

Starpoint Lifting points

When impact loaded or operated in environments with skewing and vibrations, unintentional loosening can happen, especially if through bolts with nuts are used. Securing possibilities: Use of a liquid thread securing medium eg. Loctite ( follow the manufacturer´s recomendations)

In a tightened condition, the VRS must be able to swivel up to 360°. Before loading, adjust the VRS to the direction of the applied force. A captive Hexagon socket bolt.

The VRS is patent protected : GM 9402014 - and further industrial property rights are registered under GM 9316475. For the tool - less assembling, the STARPOINT is supplied with an annealed star - profile - key.

Simply engage the Hexagon socket bolt with the star - profile - key and use your fingers to respectively tighten or untighten the arrangement. Disengage the key. The VRS is rotatable

Shape: Star shaped - clear dis- tinction from standard eye bolt DIN 580.

Colour: Striking fluorescent pink powder coating

Marking: Clear indication of WLL (in metric tonnes and lbs) for side load direction F (not allowed with standard eye bolt).

  • Forged material 1.6541, alloy quenched and tempered, 100 % electromagnetic crack detected according to EN 1677-1


Type VRS-F includes the installati- on tool/STAR KEY. This STARPOINT comes with an integrated installation tool. Just engage the tool into the hexagon socket screw – tighten by hand – disengage tool. STARPOINT can the be adjusted 360°. Type VRS without STAR KEY can be assembled by using a hexa- gon key or Allen wrench.

Alternative-Tip: Special RUD hexagon socket wrench is available upon request.

  • Safety factor 4 : 1.
  • Workpiece material must conform to minimum steel quality S235JR (1.0037).
  • Countersink of tapped hole = nominal thread diameter.
  • Provide plane seat of the special hexagon bolt.
  • VRS must be able to rotate by 360° in bolted condition.
  • Adjust to load direction before loading.
  • Component protected by patents: Europe patent EP 654 611. US patent 5690457.
  • Specifically engineered- Grade 10.9 captive hexagon socket screw.

Simply engage the hexagon socket bolt with the star profile key – use your fingers to respectively tighten or untighten the arrangement. Disengage the key before you hook in the lifting mean. Do not use an elongation piece.
