Maillon Rapide Maillon Normal

Maillon Rapide
Bryce’s take: 

8mm recommended for attaching chain to rap hangers.
10mm quite useful as the lower-off on the ends of the chain.


The standard oval shapes are are the most widely used screw-links. They are ideal for connecting to hardware such as bolt hangers or wire cables, and have the highest strength of any screw-link shape for the size of the material. They are also the cheapest option.

  • Consider breaking load limit in kN engraved to the rod.
  • Visual check of complete nut screwing compulsory; no thread must be showing.
  • Maillon Rapide quick links are only to be loaded along the major axis.
  • Maillon Rapide quick links should be carefully checked at regular intervals. If you are in any doubt about the safety of a quick link after checking, replace it with a new one.
  • When fastened with a wrench up to the proper tightening torque, Maillon Rapide quick links are considered a permanent connector.
  • Maillon Rapide should always be fitted with parts made of same material.
  • When connected with chain, Maillon Rapide quick links should be of the same diameter.
  • Never connnect any Maillon Rapide quick links onto a lifting chain.
  • Stainless steel Maillon Rapide quick links may be used in salt water.
