Maillon Rapide Standard Oval

The Original Oval Maillon Rapide

The original oval shaped Maillon was developed on the principle of a chain link fitted with a manual nut opening. Also known as the standard or normal Maillon, the Oval Maillon Rapide is a strong, robust and safe connector used in many systems. 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. The oval Maillon is also available in a wide mouth option to connect larger diameter items.

An ideal connector for permanent and semi-permanent applications, further features of maillons include:-
  • Available in a range of sizes and shapes, to suit most requirements
  • Some sizes are PPE certified, please check the Technical Specs below
  • 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.
