Broken Pendant

I shot this photo to show what friction heat does to a pendant. The flat glossy area is heat melt. It feels the same as if you were to melt the line with a lighter or hot melt gun, hard and solid. It became hard solid plastic as opposed to individual strands. This type of heat damage from friction over a chock can also lead to premature failure but the anchor got this one before the chock did.

other sizes: small original
