Abstract : A separable link connector particularly suitable for detachably connecting components of a parachute harness, the connector being essentially U-shaped and having an easily removable end cap including a yoke-shaped latch member which straddles the arms of the body and enables the end cap to be locked in place by a single recessed bolt extending through the end cap and anchored in the latch member. The invention presents a more reliable and maintainable means for insuring that the removable end cap remains in place during deployment. (Author)
