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.
