£2.09 – £2.39
Zinc coated Steel Delta/triangular Maillon Rapide
Triangular shape normally used for attaching main paraglider lines to risers or sometimes used in tow releases. Also suitable for 3 point load. 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.
