Non-Swiveling connector

Lifting applications.
Reliable connection without a snug fit of the Rope.

It's not just a simple Soft Quick connector, the NS connector is an issue solver. Main important issues are solved with this system that becomes an extension of the spliced rope. The NS Connector has a high tensile aluminum body and the Dyneema® loop is full covered. As a result, the connector has an unparalleled impact and abrasion resistance.

No snug fitting splice on the body needed to stabilize the connector. That makes it possible to service the connector without taking the line off the ship. The NS Connector does not have a self tightening or jamming action and it's morecompact, lighter and easier to operate compared to a "dog bone".

When to use the ns connector

The NS connector can be used for all connection between lines and hardware. For example, where you normally use a lashing it is smarter to use the NS connector.
