    Comments about Chain Grip:

    Used this to attach the anchor bridle on a catamaran to 3/8 chain. Seemed to be better than plain chain hooks because the retaining pin keeps it secured to the chain while the bridle is being deployed. Also stays on the chain when there is insufficient wind/current to keep tension on the bridle.

    However, the retaining pin is poorly designed. It is impossible to flush it completely of sea water after pulling up the anchor so it eventually corrodes. The pin gets sticky and difficult to move in and out and finally gets stuck in the closed position. Broke the end off trying to pull it out with a pair of pliers. What a pain in the neck!

    Having a mechanism to keep the hook secured to annchor chain is a great idea, but this design needs to be improved. It should not provide an opportunity for sea water to get trapped inside and it needs to be more robust.
