Anchor Right Flip Link
Rex Francis has developed a simple galvanised link to flip the anchor into the correct orientation when it arrives at the bow roller the wrong way around.
Without a successful method of flipping the anchor into the right alignment for entry over the bow roller and onto the deck, anchors can cause damage to the hull and, even worse, get jammed in a very awkward position.
The Flip Link should be installed between the anchor and the anchor chain, and as shown in the Anchor Right photos, a short length of chain can be inserted to create the correct distance between the link and the anchor.
The pictures show 10 links which are available to purchase: 10 LINKS OF CHAIN

Anchor Right Flip Link Fitting and User Instructions
The chain links should be installed so that the Flip Link is upright and in line with the anchor stock, as per the Anchor Right photos.
The minimum number of chain links you can use is two.
The more links that you insert between the Flip Link and the anchor, the less aggressive the flip of the anchor will be when it rights itself.
Anchor Right Recommendations
Bow rather than Dee shackles should always be used for attaching the chain links to the anchor.
Tested shackles of reliable provenance that are stronger than the anchor chain are recommended.
Please note that the photos are for illustrative purposes only - although the shackles have not been wired, it is the recommended practice.
