Chain stopper

To be installed on any ship

We have designed chain stoppers, for all chain sizes, which can be installed on any vessel, both newbuilds as well as retrofits on existing vessels. AS SCAN corporate with all major classification societies.



A chain stopper, which is also known as a cable stopper, is a device used to secure the anchor chain when riding at anchor, because the windlasses are not designed to hold high loads while a vessel is a anchor, the chain stopper can relieve the strain on the windlass and secure the anchor in the housed position in the hawse pipe. A chain stopper usually consists of two parallel vertical plates mounted on a base with a pivoting par or pawl which drops down to bear on a chain link. A hinged bar is fitted in the chain stopper which may be dropped between two links of the chain to prevent the chain from running out when the windlass brake is released.
