Anchor Righting Swivel, brings up and stores the anchor even when backwards

Anchor Righting Swivel, brings up and stores the anchor even when backwards
Everyone has the anchor come up backwards some times. It is usually corrected by tugging and twisting on the chain which is not very good for your knee’s or back. Have tried regular swivels with no luck.

An Anchor Righting Swivel does all that for you without the fuss or back problems.
I have tried everything, but with the Anchor Righting Swivel, it just works every time no matter which way the anchor comes up.

It’s intended to orientate the anchor correctly for the bow-roller, and un-twist your chain at the same time. They present all the pros and cons of any swivel, and tend to suffer from the disadvantage that they are physically longer and so may not easily fit between an anchor and windlass. They do however in general work very well, rotating the anchor in a controlled and non-violent fashion and ensuring a smooth recovery onto the roller.
