RUD Shortening elements.

Shorten lashing chains simply and quickly.

RUD lashing chains have a standard length of 3.5 m. The length settings of the lashing chains for their respective purpose are carried out with the aid of shortening elements. These shortening elements make handling easier and serve for the rough adjustment of the lashing process.

The lashing chains are hooked into the shortening claws or shortening hooks. Important: Shortening elements must not cause any reduction in minimum breaking force.
