DAVIS INSTRUMENTS

Shockles Line Snubber

These new line snubbers absorb shock on dock lines, booms, dinghies and much more. Their patented Progressive Tension Shockles system means that the harder the pull on the Shockle, the stiffer the tension becomes, gradually absorbing any shock load to your boat, cleats, chocks or pad eyes. Use to keep constant tension on your dock lines; take the shock out of a boom preventer; soften the pull on D-rings when towing a tender; tie down your boom without tensioning your running rigging; as a shock-absorbing tack for lightweight asymmetric spinnakers. Captive 316 stainless-steel carabiners can’t be lost. Sun- and abrasion-resistant nylon webbing cover. All parts rated to at least 2,500lb. 20"L to fit all applications.

    Pros

    • Easy To Install
    • Easy To Use
    • Holds Boat Securely
    • Lines Stay Snug
    • Reliable
    • Safe

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Anchor Chain Snubber
      • Docks
      • Large Boats
      • Small Boats

      With one Shockles on one dock line, all the other lines stayed taught through high winds that would normally make all lines slack. This product protects the boat and the dock.

      Cons

        Best Uses

        Comments about Shockles Line Snubber:

        At the suggestion of the company I used one rigged with my preventer line on my 36' Catalina. Without the Shockle I was getting a real slam to my boom everytime the wind switched. With the Shockle there was no slamming and my boat was much happier.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I called the company with a question and they gave very prompt and efficient advice.

        SAVED MY BOAT!

        • Holds Boat Securely
        • Safe
        • Strong

        Cons

          • Small Boats
          • STORMS

          Comments about Shockles Line Snubber:

          I HAD THESE ON ALL MY DOCK LINES DURING A RECENT STORM. WHILE MANY OTHER BOATS AROUND ME GOT SLAMMED AGAINST THE DOCKS AND ENDED UP WITH BROKEN LINES AND OTHER PARTS, THE SHOCKLES KEPT MY BOAT TOTALLY SAFE AND UNDAMAGED. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM.

          Service and delivery comments:

          I HAD A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS ABOUT THE BEST WAY TO ATTACH THEM TO MY DOCK LINES AND I WROTE THE COMPANY. THE ACTUAL PRESIDENT OF THE COMPANY RESPONDED DIRECTLY TO ME IMMEDIATELY WITH DETAILED SUGGESTIONS. NOW THAT'S GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE!

          • Lots of uses
          • Reliable
          • Safe
          • Well Made

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • Accidental jibe preventer
            • Anchor snubber
            • Dock lines
            • Docks
            • Large Boats

            Comments about Shockles Line Snubber:

            I've used these for a couple years on my 44' Beneteau for all sorts of uses. I rig them on my dock lines when in choppy marinas, on my anchor rode to reduce the stress on my anchor and windlass, to reduce wear and tear on my tender when I tow it, and as an addition to my preventer line on the boom. They attach easily and are very well made.
