Is it a swivel or is it a captive eye connector? In fact, it's both.
The Sidewinder is a directional connector with an integral swivel.
Essential in applications when there is a need to manage spin, rotate the load relative to the anchor or simply to minimise lanyard tangles.
The Sidewinder is often used as a connector on guided fall arresters as it can be captive on a system, allows rotation by the user and is quick, easy and secure when connected.
Captive eye for permanent connection
Sometimes it is essential for a connector to stay in the correct orientation or to be permanently attached to a system.
The DMM captive eye connectors, with their textile friendly attachment holes, can be stitched into a rope or webbing loop, or swaged directly onto cable.
They provide predicable direction of load and total security as the connector cannot be removed or misaligned.
Aggressive loading groove forces load into correct place
Keylock clean nose for snag free connection
DMM's patented 'Taperlock' closing mechanism increases gate push-in and cross gate strength using a special flared profile on the nose of the karabiner, as well as allowing a snag free connection for your ropes, slings and devices.
