Spring snap links are named so because of the way they function. The gate is spring-loaded, and will automatically snap shut unless it's being held in the open position. In fact, they are much quicker to use and install than "quick links". They are used in a variety of applications, including low-grade chain repair, hanging accessories while climbing, dog runs, leashes, etc. Available in a zinc-plated finish, or in 316 stainless steel for maximum resistance to corrosion.
NOT RECOMMENDED FOR fall arrest, overhead lifting or other critical applications. No matter how you use these links, always adhere to the Working Load Limits and inspect often.
