Lewmar Chain Stopper For 8mm, 5/16" Chain
Windlasses are not designed to hold high loads while a boat is at anchor. When the windlass is not in use and the boat is at anchor, the chain should be secured using a chain stopper or the rope rode should be attached to a load-bearing point such as a cleat. Lewmar has created a beautiful new range of cast stainless chain stoppers made from 316 stainless steel, perfect for sleep-filled nights and lazy lunches.
The 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16mm chain stoppers have a Safe Working Load (SWL) that is greater than the SWL of the chain.
