Mooring Compensators extend the working life of your mooring lines and reduce the stress on your cleats by absorbing tension and dampening shock loading.
Rubber snubbers, mooring springs and devices are designed to diminish the repeated peak strains and sudden violent tugs resulting from deep swells, choppy waves, surf, tidal surges and also the wake from other yachts, boats and ferries.
The practice of snubbing protects your lines from snapping, prevents excess snatch load on your cleats and their deck fixings, helps to quieten your lines as they move as well as generally dampening the extreme peak loads - no squeaking, no wear and tear.
