ANCHOR SWIVEL SHACKLES

The use of a swivel and joining shackle to join your anchor and rode will greatly improve anchor retrieval and help ensure that the rode lays neatly into your anchor locker. Thus, they are highly recommended for use with Maxwell’s automatic rope/chain series windlasses. Two sizes (6 mm - 8 mm/1/4” – 5/16” and 10 mm - 13 mm/3/8” – 1/2”) are available to suit vessels up to 20 metres (65 feet). These robust single swivel anchor connectors, with captured pins, will not loosen under load and pull smoothly and easily over bow rollers. Note: Joining the swivel directly to the anchor is not recommended.

EMERGENCY CRANK/CLUTCH RELEASE HANDLES AND BI-SQUARE EXTENSION DRIVES

The handles are for use with RC8, RC10, RC12 and HRC10 Series anchor winches and are supplied as standard accessories. Note the RC12 Series is also supplied with a specialised emergency crank handle. Two sizes are available to suit the constraints of most foredeck configurations. Constructed of light weight, durable injection-moulded plastic these handles float if accidently dropped overboard. Also available are two bi-square drives. The Extension unit facilitates access to the windlass clutch release nut in constrained areas and the ½” Drive enables the use of a standard ½” ratchet driver and is standard with all HRC10 units.
