Three slings help, but don't count them all

    If you are using 3 leg bridle slings to lift a tower section or other load, due to the possibility of a variation in the length and the height of the sling attachment points, there is a probability that the load will be held by 2 legs of the sling. To be on the safe side, you might want to use the rated capacities for just 2 slings. This also applies to a 4 sling pick. Use the capacity loading of just 3 slings.
