Maillon with rapid gate
- Lightweight aluminum maillon
- Quick opening : only four turns to open
Use only as a removable anchor for fixed caving ropes.
This aluminum quick link is not suitable for climbing. Petzl recommends the steel GO (P15) link for climbing anchors.
Saves weight and space - but for caving only

I have several of these in my pack all the time. They are great problem solvers, and weigh nothing. They work great for static rigging, and fit any old crazy bolt hanger you will ever encounter. They also work great to attach climbing slings to your acsenders. You can use a wrench to torque down the nut, and it wont move. They should not be considered for climbing shock loads, however.
