    • Revolutionary and patented, new Wave Design chainwheel
    • Stainless steel pressure arm designed to effectively grasp rope / chain splice; exerts maximum control pressure
    • Large wire diameter, heavy-duty stainless steel pre-loaded spring; works effectively with all-chain rodes
    • Complete with chromed bronze MAX-grip capstan drum to maximize pulling force
    • Large, through deck hawse pipe throat ensures easy entry of the rope / chain rode into and out of the anchor locker
