Jimmy Green Anchor Chain Snubbing Bridles are produced to order, in house, by the Jimmy Green Rigging Team from LIROS 8 Strand Nylon with the hook/grab of your choice.
They are therefore available for despatch subject to the current splicing lead time.
Specify your custom build snubbing bridle with a choice of chain hook or grab to suit 12mm/13mm anchor chain, spliced to a LIROS 20mm 8 strand Anchorplait/Octoplait nylon line which has slightly less break load than 12mm ISO4565 Grade 40 Chain.
An anchor chain snubbing line or bridle is an essential part of anchoring in all conditions.
N.B. Chain hooks, grippers and grabs are designed to fit over one link to hold fast on the next link, and not through the link.
Please consult the size chart in conjunction with the decision-making factors in our ANCHOR RODE SIZE GUIDE to establish the optimum anchor rode and matching snubbing bridle for your yacht.
Jimmy Green Anchor Snubbing V Bridles Facts and Features:
- V bridles are constructed to facilitate using the port and starboard fairleads and mooring cleats, leaving the bow roller free for the anchor rode
- As the wind veers, the load transfers to the windward bridle leg and subdues the yawing effect
- Snubbing absorbs the shock load when the anchor chain pulls tight
- Snubbing prevents potentially damaging anchor loads from reaching your windlass
- Snubbing softens the ride at anchor
- Chain hooks/grabs all slot over the chain, not through the link
- Plain in/out or retentive options
Jimmy Green Windlass Advisory
Allowing the windlass to take the strain of your anchor rode may result in damage to the windlass, or even the windlass letting go under load at precisely the wrong moment.
Anchor Chain Snubbing Guidelines:
- Length - as long as practicable (5 or 6 metres is quite common) with a minimum 3 metres tail (leg) length
Tail length is defined as the distance from the centre eye splice to the end of the line in each direction
e.g. a bridle with 3m legs will be 6m long when pulled out straight with a centre eye splice in the middle.
- Strength - similar to your Anchor Chain and Warp
- Shock Absorption - elasticity is increased with greater length and reduced diameter
- Extra Shock Absorption - mooring compensators (rubbers snubbers) are optional in the custom build system
- Abrasion Resistance - anti-chafe measures are optional in the custom build system
- N.B. If a stainless thimble will not fit and/or sit comfortably in the eye of the hook, a soft eye splice is advisable
