Heavy-Duty Link Assembly. The heavy-duty link assembly (1) is assembled as required using two 3 ¾- or
5 ½-inch (9.5 or 14.0-m) side plates (2). They use spacer, sleeve, small (3) and large sleeve spacer (4), as
required, and are secured with bolts (5) and nuts (6). Assemblies (also called two-point links) are used to
join extraction lines to LVADS platform. The length used is determined by the load being rigged.
4-Point Link. The four-point link, also called the arm clustering assembly, provides for two extraction
parachutes to be connected to the extraction line. It consists of two aluminum alloy side plates (1), and four
bolts (2) with aluminum sleeves (3), four hexagon nuts (4), and a loop spacer (5).
