Polished 316 stainless steel
Extra articulation is advisable
Snag-free passage over bow rollers and through hawsepipes
Kong stainless steel fixed anchor connectors are designed to go over bow rollers and pass through hawse pipes without snagging.
N.B. It is advisable to fit a suitable bow shackle/Quick Link between the anchor shank and the anchor connector to reduce lateral load risk - see diagram below.
To avoid lateral load on an anchor connector it needs to be able to articulate:
One solution is to fit a shackle/Maillon Rapide to the anchor shank and attach this to 3 links of chain or 3 Links of S/S Chain and then fit an anchor connector to join the 3 links to the rest of the anchor chain.
Use 10mm chain for KG AC08-T
Use 12mm chain for KG AC10-T
|Kong||Kong Chain Size||MBL straight||MBL lateral||Compatibility|
|KG AC08-T||6-8mm||2500kg||850kg||6mm, 7mm|
|KG AC10-T||8-12mm||5000kg||2000kg||8mm, 10mm|
Kong Chain Size = the chain sizes that fit on the chain end, not the anchor end
MBL = Manufacturer (Kong) straight Break Load
MBL = Manufacturer (Kong) lateral Break Load
Compatibility = reasonable compatibility with Grade 40 chain break load
Kong Fitting and Inspection:
The Kong fixed anchor connector can be disassembled to attach the chain and chain/anchor.
This is also a useful inspection facility.
