Parachute Link Connectors, Seperable
« on: February 18, 2015, 12:09:42 PM »
Like the title says, Parachute Link Connectors, Separable.  They are about 2.5" long, 1.5" wide and weigh 3.2 ounces each.

They are stamped WOF 52B6660 with various years of manufacture, mostly the mid sixties from the ones I've looked at.  Expect that to vary.

God knows what the tested strength rating is, but suffice to say that for hammocks or similar applications they will not be the part of your suspension that fails first.

After removing the end screws I needed to "persuade" the end off with a few taps of a hammer, expect to do the same.

$10 for 4 plus shipping

Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.
