About Chain Stopper With Locking Arm And Devil Claw
Technical Specifications

The Muir Chain Stopper with Locking Arm and optional Devil Claw are essential to safe anchoring. Correct anchoring procedure calls for no direct loading of the windlass while at anchor or underway. For most vessel sizes there is no better way to achieve this requirement than the chain-stopper devil’s claw combination.

While Underway

The devil claw attaches itself firmly to the chain, exerting tension to keep it in place while the anchor is stored. This added tension ensures a secure hold, even in challenging conditions. When not needed, the devil claw can be effortlessly detached or positioned aside, allowing for flexibility in its usage.

On Anchor

While at anchor the locking paw on the chain stopper is engaged on the anchor chain ensuring no load on the windlass. This is essential for safe overnight anchoring as excessive load on the windlass can cause structural damage to the windlass or your vessel. It can also lead to slippage of the gypsy potentially leading to a runaway chain.

Designed to accommodate various chain sizes ranging from 8mm to 38mm (5/16” to 11/2”), the Muir Chain Stopper with Locking Arm and Devil Claw offers versatility that caters to a wide range of vessels and anchor systems.
