Kong Stainless steel swivel anchor connector features;

  • Ideal for reducing chain twist when trying to bring an anchor to the surface
  • Allows the anchor to swivel independently and the connector to ride smoothly over the bow roller
  • Designed to go over bow rollers and pass through hawse pipes without snagging

N.B. It is advisable to fit a suitable bow shackle between the anchor shank and the 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/ fixed connector to the anchor shank and attach this to
3 links of Anchor Chain or 3 links of S/S Anchor Chain
and then fit a swivel connector to join the 3 links to the rest of the anchor chain
For KGAC08-S, use 3 links of 10mm chain
For KGAC10-S, use 3 links of 12mm chain
