Screw-links / Maillons Rapides

Screw-links are great for rigging because they are very strong and not prone to failure due to incorrect loading, particularly where their orientation can be controlled so the sleeve is not loaded. Screw-links don't unscrew readily and can be secured with a spanner or thread adhesive. As well, they are good value for money. Please note we only stock Maillon Rapides from Peuget France beware of cheap imitations out on the market these come direct from France and individually marked and rated. 

Strength ratings

Each maillon rapide is stamped with a rated strength. The type of rating depends on the intended use: standard industrial items which make up most of the range are rated by Safe Working Load, which is one-fifth of the rated breaking strength in kilograms. A small part of the maillon range is designed and certified for use in safety systems, and is referred to as PPE (personal protective equiipment). Those products are rated by their minimum breaking strength in kilonewtons (kN).

Where the PPE-rated products are available, we supply those in preference. We show both ratings in the specification tables for each type of screw-link, but only one will be marked on the product.

Delta (triangular) Screw-links Stainless Steel

Click to enlarge

Delta (or triangular) shaped screw-links are great for rigging a wire strop round an anchor – one eye of the wire comes in at each of the top corners and another connector can be attached in the bottom corner.
This shape is also good for connecting webbing to a fixed attachment point. We use them to connect our fall-arrest lanyards to the D-rings on harnesses.

Pear-shape Screw-links Stainless Steel

Pear shapes are great for attaching to harnesses that have webbing attachment points as they are wide opening and the rounded end of the pear is easy on the webbing. They are also useful whenever a wide opening or larger internal volume is needed, ie. connecting to a round bar.

Wide-mouth Stainless Steel

Click to enlarge

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.
