I mostly use this anchor for kayak fishing for sturgeon in moving water. It holds well and I have been able to anchor in some fairly strong currents with it. Often, I have more than one kayak using the anchor at the same time.

It is fairly easy to pull the anchor if it is not snagged. I tie the rope through the hole at the base of the claw and I attach the rope to the upper part of the shaft by running it through a loop of 20 pound test monofilament tied through the hole at the top of the anchor shaft. Then, if the anchor is snagged, the monofiliment will break with a good hard tug. This allows the rope to break free of the top of the shaft causing the claw to be pulled loose from whatever it is snagged on by pulling it out from the bottom.

Three pounds is light

Unless you manually bury this anchor, it isn't going toehold anything with any windage.

      Comments about Folding Grapnel Anchors:

      My brother had been looking for an anchor for is kayak. I told him about West Marine in Honolulu. We found the perfect anchor small and compact easy-to-use reasonably price what else can you ask not much. Then we took his kayak to Lanikai Beach took the kayak about a half-mile off the coast and drop the anchor and spent the next hour snorkeling it was a perfect day.

          I bought this anchor for using in my canoe. It folds up for compact storage. It keeps my boat secure in a mild current.

                Just took the kids on the kayak and used the anchor while we fished. Anchored to the reef and never had a problem. It stayed secure and we were happy knowing our kids wouldn't sail away. :)
