So a non CE quicklink holds a bit less than a worn CE carabiner, which itself holds nearly the same as a new carabiner(as they've stated). So a hardware store quicklink is nearly full strength....sounds good enough to me.... .

where did you get "a bit less" from?

they said "Non "CE" maillon rapides generally hold less that a really worn "CE" carabiner."

which aint the same thing Wink

heres a quicklink they tested ... i would hope even worn certified biners dont fail at < 8 kN in the proper orientation Tongue

the most important part

And finally, if in doubt, every piece of fixed gear is weaker than your worst quickdraw.
