New CM EZ-Connect™ Master Link & Chain Shortener from Columbus McKinnon Makes Building Chain Slings Easier Than Ever

Combining two core components of a chain sling, Columbus McKinnon Corporation, a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of material handling products, has developed the CM EZ-Connect™ Master Link & Chain Shortener. Now, rigging professionals can build chain slings easier than ever.

The CM EZ-Connect Master Link & Chain Shortener combines a master link with one chain shortener for single-leg configurations or two chain shorteners for double-leg configurations. Our unique chain shortener design allows the operator to easily adjust the leg length, enabling the sling to be used for various reaches and applications. See the EZ-Connect in action in our product video.

Not only does the EZ-Connect make it easier to build slings, it also makes it easier to order everything you need for your sling assembly with one part number. Ordering a single item also provides big savings compared to purchasing individual components.

Made in the U.S.A., the CM EZ-Connect Master Link & Chain Shortener is dual rated for use with both grade 80 and grade 100 chain. Our product is made of durable alloy steel and powder coated for extra protection against corrosion. Meets ASME, ASTM and OSHA requirements.
