If you need a quick, secure, and tool-free method to connect chain, cable, or rope together, Snap Links, also known as Spring Snaps or Carabiners, might be what you need for fast work to connect a variety of objects.
Read more or watch our video for more information on choosing the right snap link for your application.
Snap links are sometimes called Spring Snaps or Carabiners. They generally consist of a small eye area that is designed to stay connected to the chain or rope, and a larger eye that allows the spring loaded gate to open and connect to a chain, rope, or fitting.
Three Main Ratings of Snap Links
The three main ratings of Snap Links are
climbing and fall protection rated
non-load rated (which are often used for key chains).
Be aware that while many links look similar in design, you must be sure to choose the right rating for your application.
Our links are load rated, but not rated for climbing or fall protection systems.
Load rated snap links are commonly used on non-critical suspending applications, connecting chains for gates, animal harnesses, and various marine and fishing assemblies.
