How to use The Claw :
Hook The Claw to your anchor rode about 2’ from the bow roller
Pull the Snubber line taut and secure
to a bow cleat or Samson post
Reduce tension on the anchor rode
at the windlass leaving a loose section of chain, while ensuring that the bitter end remains securely fastened to a pad-eye.
Stresses are now transferred from
the windlass to the bow-cleats or the Samson post.
When it’s time to leave
the anchorage, simply re-tension the rode at the windlass, release the Snubber line and retrieve The Claw.
