RUD Master links.

Securely connect the lifting means to the crane hook.

RUD master links are equipped with a welded, all-round moveable connector. The advantage: a non-mix-up connection in terms of chain diameter and number of legs. The master link is enhanced by an identification tag (KZA) with integrated patented chain gauge. 

Thanks to a unique product and material portfolio, RUD can supply the matching solution for every purpose of application. This wide portfolio is guaranteed by the material qualities ICE (Grade 120) and VIP (Grade 100). 

What are the selection criteria for master links?

Crane hook size and design.
Number of legs of the lifting means.
Weight of the load to be moved/lifted.
