Stainless Steel Chain Hooks
Chain Hooks are suitable for taking the strain from your windlass and alleviating the snatch on your anchor rode.
The hook fits over one link and bears against the next link, see the illustration above.
Deploy the hook in conjunction with a nylon line comparable in strength to your main anchor rode.
A mooring compensator on the nylon line will subdue the snatch load.
This hook is also available from Jimmy Green Marine, spliced and finished to your requirements, and ready to deploy.
- Spliced and Finished Single Snubbing Line in 3-strand or Anchorplait Nylon
- Spliced and Finished Snubbing V-shaped bridle in Anchorplait Nylon
The V-shaped bridle centres the load by sharing the load through both bow fairleads, port and starboard.
The 6mm chain hook also fits 7mm
The 8mm Chain hook also fits 7mm and 10mm
