Constructed of 7mm cadmium steel for a breaking strength of 5,500 pounds. Design to handle multi-directional loads as might be found in rescue situations. Recommended as a lighter and less expensive attachment device for Petzl ascenders or main anchor points. Links are marked with a Normal Working Load, (NWL), which is about 1/5 of their strength.

Very HUGE load capacity for such a small screw link!

This works ok as a descending ring on a setup where untying is impractical. I would not use regularly for lowering or TR because the opening is so narrow that a 10mm rope rubs on the sides. This would be a much better device if it were about 1cm wider.
