This link is not suitable for running over a windlass gypsy.
Using stainless steel next to galvanised chain may cause a deterioration in the end links of the chain, so keeping a regular check on that area is imperative.
Any affected links can be removed and the Maillon Rapide refastened.

The threaded part may need to be worked onto a chain of the same diameter.
It may even be necessary to file a minimal amount off the thread.

Please note that Jimmy Green Marine do not recommend joining chain where the connection is load critical or a matter of safety.
