LineSnubber Reduces Stress On Docklines

The constant snapping and jarring of dock and tow lines, anchor chains, and cable connections can put massive wear and stress on docklines, cleats, railings, bow rollers and shackles. With a patented progressive tension design and internal stretch limiter, Davis Instruments’ LineSnubber reduces shock loads on lines, tie-downs and preventers. It works on any boat to make life at the dock or mooring safer and more comfortable.

Progressive tension design means the farther LineSnubber stretches, the greater its return force. The result is smooth action and moderated stress. LineSnubber is easy to attach, move or remove with its included 316 stainless steel carabiners.

Line slack is simple to adjust to suit any situation from gentle marina conditions to severe tidal surge and rough chop.

The patented internal line limiter is made of nylon webbing with a tubular outer sheath that is UV resistant.

Available in blue or black, the 20-inch LineSnubber has a price of $59.99.

Stylish, Ergonomic 9-inch Grab Rail

With Schmitt & Ongaro Marine’s new 9-inch Top-Mounted Grab Rail, function and safety have never been so ergonomic and stylish — or so easy to install. Access to the underside of the mounting surface isn’t required. It offers a solid, slip-free grip, which is essential for safety when boarding or while underway and will enhance the decor of any boat.

The durable Top-Mounted Grab Rail is constructed of highly polished cast stainless steel with a black, Santoprene™ engineered rubber insert. Custom color matching is available for OEMs.

It utilizes an ingenious flap in the insert, allowing access to the stainless steel cap screws. Once installed, the attachment hardware is completely hidden.

Schmitt & Ongaro Marine’s Grab Rails are backed by a lifetime warranty on the stainless steel and three years on the grip.

The MSRP for the Top-Mounted 9-inch Stainless Steel Grab Rail is $54.95.
