When you need a good rigging link that can be used universally, then it's hard to beat an oblong master link. While they can be used in many ways, they are often used as a "top link" or "head link", meaning they reside at the top of the assembly. Their shape works well and is accommodating for multiple-leg bridles, including wire rope and synthetic slings. They are made from weldless, forged alloy steel with a red painted finish. Safety factor of 5:1.
