Click on the boxes below to reveal your custom build options - Highlight your choice from the drop down menus  DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS

Add ANTI-CHAFE TUBE WEBBING to your basket and request the Rigging Team to sleeve it on to the chain.

More Information

Mooring Lines spliced into either end of a short length of chain can be a real asset for temporary, overnight or permanent mooring arrangements.

The Jimmy Green Team call this arrangement a Mooring Strop with Chain Centre Section.

Also known as Rope/Chain/Rope Bridles, the concept is ideal for securing your boat to a fixed pile or mooring buoy through a metal ring.

Set your lengths so that the chain centre section and not the rope comes into contact with the rusty metal, saving the warps from the otherwise ineviatble excessive abrasion.

Webbing can be sleeved over the chain to soften the harsh contact of metal on metal.
Add the appropriate webbing to your basket seaparately and put a note in the 'Name' box at the bottom of the custom build process to request that the webbing is sleeved onto the chain.

Rope/Chain/Rope Bridles Facts, Features and Plus Factors:

  • Spliced and finished in house to your specification by the Jimmy Green Rigging Team
  • Ideal for mooring onto unsympathetic steel rings - piling mooring, the top of a mooring buoy
  • Chain section provides long lasting chafe protection on the ring
  • Both Nylon and Polyester provide excellent stretch and shock absorption
  • Choose the loop splice option for a quick and easy fixed length mooring bridle
  • Select the whipping option for an adjustable length solution
  • Add anti chafe measures and mooring compensators

Rope/Chain/Rope Bridle Concept in practice:

  • Secure one end to your main cleat.
  • Pass the other end through the ring and back to the main cleat. 
  • Make sure you position the chain so that it will take the load on the ring in order to save your warp from chafe
