Tree Climbing Clips, Quick Links, Swivels

This page is full of clips, links, shackles, and swivels for the many different specialty connections a tree climber needs to make. We stock twisted clevises and locking twisted clevises which can be used to attach a mechanical flipline adjuster to your saddle, swivel shackles which can be used to let the connecting hardware turn freely, and a variety of links, snaps, and quick links which are ideal for attaching tools, bags, and other gear. The shackles and links on this page are intended for static loading only and not for shock loading.
