Chain hook snubbing strop with LIROS 3 Strand Nylon
Anchor Snubber Strops absorb the shock load when the anchor chain pulls tight.
Chain snubbing strops prevent potentially damaging anchor loads from reaching your windlass.
Essential for anchoring in all conditions.
Anchor Chain Snubbing Guidelines:
Length - as long as practicable (5 or 6 metres is quite common) with a minimum 3 metres
Strength - similar to your Anchor Chain and Warp
The shock absorption qualities of the snubber will increase with greater length and reduced diameter.
