Abstract : The results of a static test to determine whether a Line Fast Corporation Tandemloc Connector meets the tensile requirements for use with ISO containers in the Marine Corps Container System and the NMCB TOA Container System are presented. Sixteen connectors were tested. The maximum applied forces were measured, recorded, and then compared with the rated capacity. The connector met the tensile requirements and should be qualified for use with both container systems. (Author)
