Snubber Pendant

Mantus Snubber Pendant is designed to attach the snubber line to chain/or line rode. It is made from UHMWPE fiber (Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene fiber) material known to be size for size as strong as steel.

Use as Snubber attachement:

While many sailors use chainhooks to attach snubber to chain others prefer to tie a rolling hitch directly onto the chain rode. The advantage of Mantus Snubber Pendant is that it is easier to tie and much easier to remove after any significant loading, further the 5mm Pendant can be used on line rode as well by simply tying a 3 pass prusik knot, thus smaller boats that have mostly line anchor rode can still attach the bridle using the Snubber Pendant.

The same 5 mm pendant is really useful when it is necessary to offload a  line under load. A simple 3 pass prusik knot should be used for attachment and removal is real easy even after > 1000 lbs loading.

All pendants include an appropriately size 316 stainless steel shackle see table below for details

Question
I have just received the 8mm snubber. Why is it not as flexible as shown in your video? Am concern if it will slip on my 10mm chain. Andrew Chan asked on June 23, 2021
Answer
Andrew the Pendant is covered in a chafe guard, it will loosen up slightly after use.Once loaded the prusik knot will wrap around the chain , and should not slip. Phil Kutsen answered on June 28, 2021 store managerstore manager

Question
Why does it look like dyneema is on shackle end and braided on rope/chain end? I know not to put dyneema where it can cut the nylon, but why not make the entire snubber out of braided line? thx antonio asked on June 4, 2021
Answer
Antonio these are old pictures , we need to update. The UHMWPE fiber is fully covered in a chafe guard now, it is not exposed.The core is made out of UHMWPE fiber for its strength to be used instead of a chain hook, or to offload line .

What size is appropriate for a Catalina 380 sailboat? Christopher Chomyn asked on May 1, 2021
Answer
Mr. Chomyn How do you plan to use the pendant? If you using it to secure the bridle to the rope rode 5 mm will be work best. Nina Zhukova answered on June 3, 2021 store managerstore manager

Why does it only say the 5mm Snubber Pendant can be attached to line rode. Does that mean 8 and 10 mm are not recommended to be used to attach to line rode? Steve asked on April 17, 2021
