8mm Stainless Steel Standard Oval Maillon Rapide

Standard oval shape normally used for linking narrow webbing or dyneema cord reserve bridles. Sometimes used in tow release systems, or for towing cars and tethering elephants, this 9mm oval is incredibly strong. 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: 1100kg
  • BL: 5500kg
  • Total length: 74mm
  • Weight: 79g

  1. Patrick Holmes (store manager)

    Very very strong but overkill for most paragliding applications, the 7mm maillon is easily strong enough.
