|These are our new light weight D rings. For heavy leather use, our heavy D rings are the usual choice, but for lighter weight garment leather, or fabric, vinyl, macrame and so forth this might be better suited for your purpose. These are welded D rings, so they perform much better than a non-welded one would. If you make light weight "play" restraints, these will hold some decent pulling force, just not the same as our heavy D rings . |
These are made by forming wire (of the diameter specified in the listing) in the shape of the D ring. The seam at the base (hidden by your material when in use) is then welded, and finally the plating is applied. This differs from cast rings, which are poured as molten metal into a mold, and the resulting product is without a weld, and one solid piece. Non-welded wire rings are missing the weld at the joining point and are inherently much weaker, under load they can simply bend open.
These are available in sizes up to 1 1/2", and also are available smaller than our heavy D rings.
We provide 2 measurements, the first, in inches, is the inner diameter of the ring, this is measured at the straight part of the D, and, therefore, is the size of the material which will fit correctly into the ring. This dimension is just slightly generous (a 2" ring may measure 2.05") so that there is no binding. The second is the thickness, in millimeters, of the material itself.
Separately we offer our brass D rings , and our cast D rings , which are much smaller and lighter, and of course our work horse, the heavy D rings.
Please see sizes available in the chart below.
