Re: Cheap chain stop snubber hook

Do a Google Image Search for "Clevis Claw"
these are common in rigging, used for a thousand solutions every day in industry, no need to have a "Marine" one.

Meanwhile, think I might drop down to my local machine shop and see what they would charge to make one out of SS. Nice concept, thanks.

Gives a high chafe line at chafe points.
Playing with this now. My mooring penant is Dyneema with Braided line before it meets the hawser. Currently riding on a Amsteel kleimheist loop. With braided line for spring. Winds are 25 knots. [B]A loop if Amsteel is passed through my chain from [b]ow cleat to ow cleat as a chain stop. Hope I explained this set up well. Your thoughts.
Hi Sabray,

I'm looking into using Amsteel as my chain stop using this same setup also. I'm thinking of using two brummel splices on each end with the eye fed through the bow cleat/around horns. Or did you splice a continuous loop and lockstitch?

Thanks,

Frank

Well, bought the hook, at reasonable postage. Just received it, no chance to try it yet. Must say it is an impressive piece of kit, very heavily built. Thanks Greg
