LIROS Anchorplait White Nylon (polyamide) is the optimum choice for a rope/chain combination anchor rode.
Anchorplait is stretchy and strong, flakes into the chain locker like chain, splices neatly and directly into the chain with a strong connection.

Splicing Compatibility - the maximum diameter of rope that will splice successfully into a given chain calibration is limited by the amount of rope fibres that the chain link(s) will accommodate and still allow a degree of articulation in the joint:

10mm Anchorplait - 6mm and 7mm Chain
12mm Anchorplait - 7mm and 8mm chain
14mm Anchorpalit - 8mm and 10mm chain
16mm Anchorplait - 10mm chain
18mm Anchorplait - 10mm Chain
20mm Anchorplait - 12mm Chain
24mm Anchorplait - 12mm chain
N.B. We do splice 16mm Anchorplait into 8mm Chain on request but it is a border line tight fit in the link

LIROS Anchorplait White Nylon Article 01058JG is manufactured EXCLUSIVELY by LIROS Ropes with Easy Splice Markers for Jimmy Green Marine.
The 8 strand construction [2 pairs left hand, 2 pairs right hand] gives a balanced performance and no twist under tension.
Anchorplait is the rope that won't cockle. In fact, it flakes like chain.

  • square braid construction
  • non kinking
  • balanced braiding
  • spliceable to chain
  • dependable strength
  • excellent durability
  • UV and abrasion resistant
  • Excellent Shock Absorbing Elongation >20% working load stretch.

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 =
10mm 2652kg ~ 12mm 3468kg ~ 14mm 4590kg ~ 16mm ~ 6018kg ~ 18mm 7344kg - 20mm 8364kg ~ 24mm 12036kg


Jimmy Green Anchorplait to Chain Splicing Advisory

A rope to chain splice is required to complete your anchor rode

  • Anchorplait can be attached to chain using a long (11 link) splice or a shorter 1 link splice
  • The 11 link splice is not recommended by some windlass manufacturers for use on a rope/chain gypsy
  • The break load is slightly greater on the 1 link splice than the 11 link splice but the critical strands around the end link should be scrutinised regularly for signs of chafe.
  • The 11 link splice should also be regularly visually scanned for wear along all the interwoven strands including the whipped ends

11 Link Splice - whipping at throat, two pairs finish in link 9, tapered to link 11, with long heat sealed tails whipped around link in pairs.
1 Link Splice - a crown splice formed around the last link of the chain.


Jimmy Green Marine offer a choice of 3 top manufacturers for Calibrated Grade 40 Anchor Chain, all eminently suitable for splicing into Anchorplait

Please bear in mind that while it is possible to splice Anchorplait into Grade 70 chain, the break load of the rope will not match that of the chain.
