New "Captain Hook" Chain Snubbers can be used a few different ways:
1. Use the claw and attached line to relieve tension from your windlass while anchored by snubbing the chain overboard and tying off the line to a cleat or samson post on deck.
2. Use the snubber on deck for security to hold the chain in your anchor roller and tying off on a cleat while under way for piece of mind.
3. Relieve the tension on the windlass (like in 1.) by attaching the snubber to the chain in the anchor roller and pulling back and tying off securely.
All T-316 stainless, includes 12' of 1/2" 3-strand nylon line with professional eye splice.
