LIROS Anchorplait/Octoplait White Nylon V shaped Mooring and Anchoring Bridles

Custom Build a bridle to divide the load between two cleats - spliced and whipped to your own bespoke requirements by the Jimmy Green Rigging Team.

Jimmy Green V Shaped Anchorplait Bridles:

  • A Jimmy Green V shaped bridle is based on the Anchorplait centre eye splice (with or without a thimble/chain hook).
  • The bridle consists of a continuous line, made into a soft loop around a fitting or formed around a hard thimble eye with a brummel locking tuck splice.
  • The strength of the bridle is therefore not reliant on a Y Joining Splice i.e. splicing two separate ropes together
  • The maximum angle of deployment must always be set up with caution but the centre eye splice is much less prone to failure at a wider than optimum angle than any joining splice between two separate ropes.
  • It is not possible to successfully put a centre eye splice in a rope of 3 strand construction

Jimmy Green Multihull V Bridle Advisory
The wider angle involved with setting up a V bridle on broader beam multihulls may make it prudent to deploy separate hardware-connected lines.
Mantus Marine manufacture a Bridle Plate solution.
Single lines can be 3 strand (twisted lay) construction: 3 Strand Strops rather than Anchorplait if preferred.

LIROS specify their manufacturer minimum break loads in Deka newtons = DaN
DaN = Deka newtons
1 Deka newton DaN actually = 1.01971621297793 (approximately 1.02) kg

01058 / 01058JG - 1000 =  2600 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1200 =  3400 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1400 =  4500 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1600 =  5900 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1800 =  7200 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 2000 =  8200 daN
01058 - 2400 = 11800daN

LIROS Break Load converted to Kg from DaN at 1:1.02 =

LIROS Octoplait Polyester
Article 01049 - 8 Strand, Balanced, Square Braid Construction, 100% Polyester - super pliable, spliceable to chain, Reliable load capacity and abrasion resilience combined with excellent constructional shock absorption >15% working load stretch

LIROS Break Load: 10mm 2000kg ~ 12mm 2400kg ~ 14mm 3800kg ~ 16mm ~ 4700kg ~ 18mm 5800kg - 20mm 7600kg ~ 24mm 11600kg


Additional Information
The finished length is measured from the bearing edge to the bearing edge = the inside face of a loop/thimble where e.g. a shackle pin would take the load and therefore NOT the overall outside length
The splicing price includes the extra rope required to make the splice and meet the overall finished length

Quality Control
The Jimmy Green Rigging Team undertake to check your rope meticulously during the production process to ensure that it is 100% First Quality
The Jimmy Green Despatch Team make a second thorough quality inspection of each item, including a careful check that it matches your order, before packing it into your parcel
