Maillon Rapide Maillon Wide

Maillon Rapide
Bryce’s take: 

The 6mm or 7mm make great bail biners and the 8mm is often used to connect to eye bolts, or adjust the length of chain.


Wide mouth screw-links are useful when a thick rope or chain needs to be attached, or the extra length of the link is an advantage. Often these are needed to connect to eye-bolts or other anchors, when the thickness of the anchor requires the wider opening.

  • 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.
