8mm Stainless Steel Square Maillon Rapide


Customer reviews

8mm Stainless Steel Square Maillon Rapide

Use as single point, master connection between your parachute bridle loop (which generally comes with your parachute) and a Y-bridle (which normally comes with your harness, or is purchased as an accessory). Suitable for attaching single point reserves to bridles, used for up to 28 mm flat webbing, this maillon rapide is strong enough to use for a tandem reserve bridle connection. Ideally use elastic bands or heat shrink to stop movement and rotation once fitted.

PLEASE NOTE: Some GIN harness manuals state an 8mm connector should be used, this refers to the thread size and not the bar diameter used to size Maillon Rapide’s. Please use a 7mm Square Maillon for this application.

The best strength/weight connector on the market, manufactured in France by Peguet.

Ideal for any application calling for reliable strength, smallest size and lightest weight.

NOTE: Steel maillons are stamped with a “Working Load Limit” (WLL) corresponding to 20% of their minimum breaking strength (BL). The WLL is the maximum load the manufacturer guarantees will not deform the maillons, allowing opening of the screw closure with fingers.

WARNING: When using steel maillons, double-check and triple-check that they are screwed shut properly as part of every pre-flight check. Tightening should be done with fingers. A spanner may be used carefully, just give them a ‘nip’. Threadlock compound or liquid is not recommended.

WLL: 770kg
BL: 3850kg
Total length: 71mm
Weight: 90g
