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.
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.
