Pressure Arm on Maxwell Windlass

After about no more then a dozen anchorages the pressure arm (white and yellow plastic things) went off
Replacement is not a big deal neither is the cost.
But I'm wondering is this should happen so often and why such a cheap plastic things is used instead of something more permanent and stronger?

Also I've been told that on an all chain you can do without it.

Any experiences to share?

Re: Pressure Arm on Maxwell Windlass

mine got chewed up on my SL windlass this year and I took it off while waiting to replace, it did jam up more on both the rope and chain without the pressure arm, but it did still work as long as I was "helping" the rode off the windlass
