Common restrictions: Breaking strengths for D-rings vary from manufacturer, size, thickness, and material. Plastic D-rings however, do not have a breaking strength because it costs way to much money for manufacturers to have them tested compared to the cost of product. For the breaking strengths on our D-rings, please give us a call or send us an email so we can help.
