The Strongest Link in Your Chain
The strongest link – Mantus swivel is stronger than its corresponding Grade 40 chain. (WLL is 1/5 UBS)
Integrated shackle design completely eliminates side loading making this the safest swivel on the market.
The pin on the chain side of the swivel is the strength limiting part since the geometry of the chain determines the pin size. Mantus swivel is the first to feature an oblong pin to maximizes the pin strength, with the aid of computer modeling and physical testing we truly created a swivel that is the strongest link.
Note the innovative shackle bolt design – no shackle dog! This slim hex head design (with holes for safety wire) offers a slimmer profile making it easier for translating through your bow roller.
- 316 L Stainless Steel, Precision Cast and Electro-Polished Body
- Pin made from Duplex Stainless Steel and is mechanically polished and electro-polished.

Understanding your chain
|Imperial Chain Type||G30 (Proofcoil/BBB) (lb) UBS / WLL / WLL inflated*||G40 HT (lb) UBS / WLL / WLL inflated*||G70 HT (lb) UBS / WLL / WLL inflated*|
|1/4||5,000 / 1,250||7750 / 1,938 / 2,600||9,450 / 2,350 / 3,150||UBS -Ultimate Breaking Strength (lb) WLL – Working Load Limit (lb) WLL Inflated* – Working Load Limit inflated using a a different safety factor than is standard. See note below.|
|5/16||7,600 / 1,900||11,600 / 2,900 /3,900||14100 / 3,500 / 4,700|
|3/8||10,600 / 2,650||16,200 / 4,100 / 5,400||19800 / 4,950 / 6,600|
|7/16||NA||21,600 / 5,400 / 7,200||26,250 / 6,560 / 8,750|

|* Grade 40/70 chain types claim inflated working load limit values. Typically chains working load limit is calculated as 1/4th of the ultimate breaking strength. Published WLL for Grade 70 /Grade 40 chain are calculated using the safety factor of 3, or UBS/3 = WLL. (G4 HT) is only 50% stronger than G30 chain and Grade 70 chain is only 20% stronger than G40 chain and 85% stronger than G30 chain. Thus WLL values we use to size you with the correct swivel are WLL = UBS/4 regardless of the chain type . For Mantus Swivels, we use a safety factor of 5 when determining the WLL recommendations.|
