New style raising and lowering links
We are transitioning to a new style of economy link.
They are similar to the ~$80 Kouba links, but stronger and at our usual "less than 1/2 the price."
Remember the story about the million dollar pen that writes in zero gravity and the pencil?
We solved the problem of the limitation imposed by the stock bolt length. Links made of 6061-T6 need to be 3/8" thick to be equal in strength to the stock links. Others have machined a relief into the links to reduce the thickness at the bolt head to 6 mm (a little less than 1/4"). Their design allows use of the stock bolts, but means the strength in this area is less than stock.
We just supply longer Grade 8 bolts with the links. Simple, better, cheaper.
