The Weak-Link is intended to be installed between the hoist hook and the upper end of the
guide/trial/tag line, used in helicopter hoist operations. The Weak-Link p/n WL120 is made of UV- and water resistant special designed polypropylene webbing. There is a loop in each end to install it to the trial/tag/guide line or a carabiner.
The Weak-Link is designed with a built in indicator link which indicate if the weak-link has been overstressed.
The Weak-Link WL120 has an ultimate load at 120 kg ± 15 %. The indicator link breaks at 75kg ±20 % which makes it easy to check if the Weak-Link has been overstressed. The Weak-Link is overstressed when it has been exposed for abnormal load during the hoist procedure.
