Abstract

See full text

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.
