We used one on another boat. We could always tell where it was because it rusted before the rest of the chain. Not a bad thing. It was an easy to find for an inspection. It never failed.

I've had mine in service for 5 years (in April) with frequent anchoring. No rust, no windlass problems and no apparent wear. I placed some zip ties at the link as part of my rode markers and check it regularly.

Count me as one happy customer, but I bought a spare just in case. It still sits in my drawer unused.

I used one of the Seafit links to join 2 sections of 3/8 G4 HT. After a couple of seasons I decided to replace it with a new Seafit link. What I discovered was that the Seafit link did give up easily. Even after taking a grinders to it to cut it off, the two halves still did not come apart. a friend who is a tug boat captain recommends that I weld the link. What I have done is paint the link and I keep a close eye on it. I do carry a foot of 3/8 chain and 2 shackles in the event I find myself in a situation of an approaching storm, I can always shackle in a foot in case the splice fails

Did you mean "...did NOT give up easily." ?

Sorry it was a typo
The link did NOT give up easily.
