A cargo tong is provided having a pair of elongate straight shanks of opposite hand, each shank terminating in a boot-like extension which has a recess on the upper side for receiving cargo net carrying or attaching members. The toe portions of the boot extensions abut when no-load conditions occur during cargo transfer. The shank and boot are made of flat metal for strength and easy accomodation in cargo net webbing, beckets, etc. The recesses have restricted openings to aid in preventing disengagement of carrying members.
