Another CountyComm Exclusive
A large client needed a way to connect their flashlight and compass to their gear with a secure, light weight, low magnetic signature (so as not to affect the compass) corrosion resistant link. We ran into two problems. Commercially available links either weren't small enough or they weren't professional quality.
SOLUTION: We had a screw link custom made for our client. During the design phase a decision was made to use Ti6Al4V Titanium.
There has been high demand for Titanium (God's Metal) Screw links. We are proud to introduce the limited production Ti Screwlink. Titanium is stronger than most steels and 45 percent lighter. The melting temp of titanium is just over 3000F, non-magnetic and rust proof. The Ti Screwlink are ideal for EDC (Everyday Carry).
With Brass knurled lock for smooth threading
THE BIG PICTURE:
We all carried the prototype in our pockets for a few days and each of us came up with some additional uses. We liked the concept so much we ordered extras for us and you.
Titanium / Brass Model
4.4 Grams ( Almost lighter than a feather )
1.85" x .9" x .115 Inches
Solid Brass Model
7.2 Grams / 1/4 Ounce
1.85" x .9" x .115 Inches
Excellent, strong, light clip. Threading (brass on titanium) is smooth, probably smoother than titanium-on-titanium would have been. Nice item.
It seems like there is always something to tighten. These screw heads are of the same precision quality as a surgeon's instruments. Hopefully more sizes and heads will be available at some time in the future. Good stuff, as usual.
This screw link was more useful than I thought. I expected it to be bigger in my mind but that worked out in its favor. Very tough for the size, uniform material threads. Oh btw mine was a blasted brass finish though ymmv.
I own both the brass and TI screw link. The TI version is superior in two different ways. The threads on the TI version do not gall when removing items the way the brass version can. Also, the TI version has a screw lock that is slimmer in diameter than the brass version. This allows certain items to slip over the screw lock when shifting items on the screw link that were unable to do so with the brass version (such as the TI Key Amigo clip offered by CC as well). So glad I purchased. A great piece of gear no doubt! Hope you love it like I do.
My camping store used to carry these. The ones that I purchased way back then some 20 years ago are still in use. What is the point? These screw links are built to do their thing for a long time!
Bought these after having several other brands that were spring loaded fail. They are very nice and sturdy.
