The replacement U adapter info:
Item number H-29180A, Description: U-ADPT FOR 1/4in PINS J109
I attached a picture with the old U adapter next to the new one. As you can see, the new one is much larger. Hopefully this will prevent the U adapters from breaking in the future.

The upgrade is a safety issue and absolutely Class Legal. Other custom solutions for heavy duty versions of this connecting piece are also Class Legal as long as the function of the Block/Swivel assembly is not changed.
This winter I will look at the possibility of fabricating a small stainless disk that fits over the plastic swivel and is bolted using the existing 4 screws. Something like this should take the load off the plastic piece. If successful, I'll suggest that Harken may want to incorporate the upgrade.
