    • Maxwell Wave Design™ chainwheel is a patented rope/chain wheel which incorporates (2) unique design concepts that greatly improve the handling and control of the rope/chain spliced rode
    • The outer ribs of the chainwheel are angled slightly forward ensuring that the rope and the chain are smoothly guided in the wheel during anchor retrieval
    • As the rope pulls into the wheel, the opposite facing inner ribs grip the rope in an undulating manner, securing the rope more firmly in a " wave pattern" action
      • This is far superior to the traditional "jam cleat" manner of holding the rope
    • The Wave Design holds the rope more securely and is easier on the rope resulting in increased longevity of your anchor rode


    • Recommended for use with 5/16" HT Chain
    • Will also work with 5/16" BBB or 8mm short link marine chain
