Maillon Rapide Wide Mouth Oval

The Wide Mouth Oval Maillon Rapide

The oval shaped Maillon was developed on the principle of a chain link fitted with a manual nut opening. The Wide Mouth Oval Maillon Rapide is a strong, robust and safe connector used in many systems. With an opening 6.5mm wider than the standard oval maillon, the wider diameter opening facilitates easier joining of larger diameter items. While slower to open and close than a carabiner, maillons can be more secure when tightened down — and they cost less than a carabiner as well.

An ideal connector for permanent and semi-permanent applications, further features of maillons include:-
  • Also available in standard oval and delta shape, to suit most requirements
  • PPE certified
  • Maillon Rapide quick links used as a connector on PPE (personal protective equipment) against falls from heights, mountaineering and rock climbing, are distinguished by a specific marking
  • Breaking strength in kN is identified on each Maillon Rapide meant for application in PPE. (Breaking strength must not be under 25 kN).


Please note that adequate training and judgment are needed to reduce the risks inherent in the use of this equipment. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that the user is adequately and competently trained in the use of this product. We strongly advise that you do not use any of our connectors without first undertaking appropriate training.
