The Hayn Lifeline Interlocking Gate Eye does not swivel. It uses a Hayn Hi-Mod compression fitting to secure it to the lifeline. This type of fitting uses a crown thrust ring to ensure even spacing of the wire for swaging. It also has a longer cone and more slots in the cone than comparable fittings. All of this means these fittings have a greatly increased ability to handle fatigue.
Hayn MarineHi-MOD Compression Fittings are unique in a number of ways
The first is that the cone is longer than comparable fittings currently available
This spreads the load over a longer portion of the wire, as well as increases the compressive forces inside the fitting
Hayn has increased the number of slots on the cones to allow for a more even transfer of the load throughout the wire
The cone is also made from stainless steel, so it is not required to replace the cone upon inspection and/or re-use
Hayn doesn't recommend the use of sealant in the fitting
The fittings use a crown thrust ring to assure even spacing of the wire around the cone
With the use of this crown thrust ring, there's no need to bend the wire around the top of the cone to achieve the proper seating depth of the cone in the body
The combination of these features greatly increases the fitting's ability to handle fatigue, a critical component of any rigging part
Without bending the end of the wire, they are also able to greatly reduce the galling problem inherent in these fittings
