I use the one pictured above that has the blue bungee attached. That is called a Carbine Hook and is made by Wichard. I do not use the bungee as pictured but the hook to bridle is my set up. I use the biggest one they make for hooking to mooring balls. It works great and fits all moorings in the BVI/ caribbean. This is the fastest way to take a mooring that I have found. I do not use this for a chain hook though.

I use a more traditional chain grabber with bridle when anchoring on the hook. It works great too. Of course, with a cat, bridles tend to work smoother than on mono's.

I made up my own snubbers from 35' 5/8" 3-strand nylon, Wichard chain hooks ("chain grip" #2985), and assorted bits. The Wichard hooks have a small sprung pin that keeps the hook from falling off the chain.
