A safety factor of almost 5:1 for working load to minimum breaking strength provides for the necessary safety margin for you to rely 100% on this most important element in your ready setup longline rig!
The second aspect was size and weight. It is still today on of the smallest and lightest superlongline compatible webbing lockers. With its super slim profile and a weight of 197 grams, it is less than half the size and weight of some other comparable products with the same performance data.
With its highly rounded edges (see right hand pics) at exactly those locations, where the webbing touches the edges of the lineLock, it preserves and protects your precious webbing in the best possible way.
The sideplates are CNC machined out of solid 6mm aviation aluminum plates of the highest possible grade (alloy 7075-T651). The edges, at which the webbing exits the lineLock and the edges of the locker-pin cut-outs are CNC chamfered (1mm/45°) for best webbing protection. The sideplates are then vibratory finished extensively for all-over webbing friendly rounded edges.
The middle diverter bushing is machined in a CNC turning lathe with highest precision from solid 7075-T651 aluminum rods.
All aluminum parts are finally finished with an anodized coating for best durability, corrosion protection and a nice look.
All bolts, pins and screws are made of high grade steel.
