Mantus Snubber Pendant

The 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 the Mantus Snubber Pendant is that it is easier to tie and much easier to remove after any significant loading. Further, the Snubber 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.

All pendants include an appropriately sized Dupplex 2205 stainless steel shackle; see the table below for details.
