More Information

LIROS 12mm Anchorplait Nylon Spliced to 8mm DIN766 Grade 40 Calibrated Anchor Chain, prepared in house by the Jimmy Green Rigging Team.

Consult the information and size chart in our ANCHORING SYSTEM ASSESSMENT to establish the most suitable specification and length for your motor or sailing yacht, considering the application - Bower, Second or Kedge anchor - your intended cruising plans - and your reliance on anchoring.

The Bitter End
Consider how you are going to attach the warp on deck or in your chain locker.
This will depend on whether the strongpoint e.g. cleat, U bolt, eye plate will be used to take the full strain of the rode or only to prevent accidental loss overboard:

  • Finishing the rope yourself - no selection required, the rope will just be cut with a heat gun
  • Attaching to a mooring cleat - choose a Loop Splice
  • Attaching to a U Bolt or Eye Plate
    • with a knot - choose a whipping or heat sealing option
    • with a shackle - choose an eye splice with or without a thimble N.B. galvanised thimbles tend to be very large and cumbersome

Anchorplait is the rope that won't cockle

LIROS specify their manufacturer minimum break loads in Deka newtons = DaN
DaN = Deka newtons
1 Deka newton DaN actually = 1.01971621297793 (approximately 1.02) kg

01058 / 01058JG - 1000 =  2600 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1200 =  3400 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1400 =  4500 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1600 =  5900 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1800 =  7200 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 2000 =  8200 daN
01058 - 2400 = 11800daN

LIROS Break Load converted to Kg from DaN at 1:1.02 =
10mm 2652kg ~ 12mm 3468kg ~ 14mm 4590kg ~ 16mm ~ 6018kg ~ 18mm 7344kg ~ 20mm 8364kg ~ 24mm 12036kg

Jimmy Green Anchorplait to Chain Splicing Advisory

The rope to chain splice is required to complete your anchor rode

  • Anchorplait can be attached to chain using a long (11 link) splice or a shorter 1 link splice
  • The 11 link splice is not recommended by some windlass manufacturers for use on a rope/chain gypsy
  • The break load is slightly greater on the 1 link splice than the 11 link splice but the critical strands around the end link should be scrutinised regularly for signs of chafe.
  • The 11 link splice should also be regularly visually scanned for wear along all the interwoven strands including the whipped ends
  • This is a required field in the custom build process
