Did you know that this type of swivel has been implicated in failure due to a lack of toggle effect at the anchor. This can lead to breakage esp.in SS from repeated stress. I found out when surveyor told me and my insurance company to replace mine and did some follow up reading.

I've never used swivels, but have seen alot of people who have them. His biggest one has radiused corners in the slots which is a good thing. Just thought I would pass it along. He's got some great deals on other things as well.

The only anchor swivels they are showing that also have the Toggle are the:
#MPD-052 for 7/16" chain (4200# WLL)
#MPD-062 for 5/16" chain (3700# WLL)

The numbers MPD-041, 042, & 043 only have the swivel, but not the centre toggle.
