Rapid Link - Maillon Rapide

Zinc Plated

These are the most effective in applications where semi-permanent attachments are made. All the links are zinc plated steel with a long threaded nut closure. Our 1/2" Stainless Steel Rapid Links are the perfect link between our RCU & RSA Pulleys. *We offer French Maillon Rapide Links as well as Chinese Rapid Links. The French Links are much more consistant in quality and dimensions; you get what you pay for.
