A quick-detachable sling swivel comprises a body and a shift/swing gate mounted on the body through an elongated plunger. The gate, through manipulation of the plunger, is adjustable between open and closed positions relative to the body to enable mounting, demounting and securing of the swivel relative to an external structure. The swivel has a locking mechanism for restricting movement of the plunger to prevent the gate from opening. The body and the loop are integrally formed of metal. The loop has a pair of opposed substantially parallel side members. The gate may include a wedge protruding toward the tang, the wedge having an upper surface that, in the closed position, opposes a flat lower surface of the body. The swivel is capable of withstanding at least 500 lbs. of pull force.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
