The Maxwell height-matched chain stopper is custom made to suit our RC series windlasses, which means no packers or plinths are necessary.
In essence chain stoppers are designed to act as a load bearing point in order to take load off the windlass while at anchor or under way. The chain stopper can be used as an alternative to a snubbing hook and allows one to quickly set and ride on the anchor, break free the anchor, or to prevent accidental free fall of the anchor while under way.
