Item does not fit pictures. The Working load is too low for being safe in climbing.
I purchased a couple of these maillons with the purpouse of rope soloing. I wanted to attach it to a micro traxion ascender. Unfortunately the product photo doesnt match the actual product. The gate is actually much closer to the center and isn't offset as much as it is in the photo. This makes the maillon appear much larger than it actually is.
More dimensions on the product page would have helped me avoid this issue. So here are the dimensions of this maillon to help anyone else avoid the same issue in the future. Unfortunately, you cannot return safety gear so I'll have to find another use for it.
Gate opening: 8mm
Width at the gate: 2.6cm
Width at the thinner area: 2.3cm
I still gave the product 4 stars as the product is fully functional and looks good. It just isn't quite what I thought it was!
