The Apco Softlink Karabiner is a lightweight (~5 gr), super-strong (3,000 kg) alternative for flying karabiners.
Made from the finest quality dyneema fibres available, resulting in it being stronger than our strongest Steel and Aluminium Karabiners.
It is so strong that we could not break it on our 2,000 kg. tensile strength machine as a double loop.
We had to test it as a single loop with results indicating that when used as instructed as a double loop, breaking strength is approx. 3,250 kg.
The Softlink is perfect to use as a backup to aluminium Karabiners used as a single loop (1500Kg), see image in product gallery.
The softlink can also be used to link reserve bridles to harnesses, provided necessary steps are taken to ensure that friction damage will not occur in a shock opening. This can be done by locking the parts in place with O-Rings, or with Silicone Tape. We recommend using it in triple looped configuration for reserve bridles where possible.
