AnchoRight Chain Markers for 12mm Chain
AnchoRight Anchor Chain Markers are an innovative, improved concept that is more robust and secure and doesn't accidentally pop out under duress.
Anchoright Chain Markers are designed not to pop out from the links once fitted.
So whether passing through a windlass, dragging on the seabed floor or piling up in the anchor locker, the Anchoright Chain Markers stay put for seasons.
Fitting the Chain Markers is simple - firmly press the two halves together and secure them with the marine-steel screw provided.
AnchorRight Chain Markers have a unique patent-pending design feature that successfully addresses the issue of generic plastic markers tending to fall out over time.
The two parts are securely fastened together with a self-tapping screw to create a durable, firm and secure grip in each link.
A guide plate is included, which provides the components to formulate the plate in seconds - enabling you to choose your colour sequence and numbers or use the suggested guidelines below.
These innovative markers are ideal for helping everyone on board to see how much chain has been paid out.
Chain markers are made of Poly Lactic Acid (PLA), a cornstarch-based polymer that behaves like Plastic but is made from renewable resources and is more biodegradable than typical plastics. PLA is considered to have a similar environmental impact as composting wood

The Red chain marker is used at the end of the chain as a warning colour that the anchor is close to mounting the bow roller - this gives the user a chance to clean it off if necessary and slow down the retrieval to avoid any unwanted crashes.
