Quick links ensure that chains and rings are joined securely. They have a threaded barrel that users can screw open to accept loops and rings, and screw close to retain them. They can also be tightened with a wrench to mitigate any negative repercussion that can be caused by vibrations. They come in various sizes ranging from 1/8 inches to 23/32 inches, and are a perfect fit for every project. Higher grade stainless steel provides increased durability and maximum protection against corrosion. Quick links are often ideal for marine linking and rigging applications.
