The Kong Stainless Steel Chain Gripper is a specialized shackle that provides a safe, secure attachment point anywhere along a length or anchor chain.
The chain gripper shackle attaches over an individual chainlink. The shackle features a large ring for fastening a snubber line. A snubber prevents the transferring of damaging shock loads from the chain to your windlass and boat. Kong chain grippers are constructed from top quality 316 stainless steel, complete with a captive shackle pin.
Chain grippers are available in two sizes.

Doesn't fit our 1/2"13mm chain rode
As noted on the product specs this shackle fits 8-12mm chain.We are having the inside curve ground down 1Mm so that we can use it with our 1/2" 13mm chain. Note that these should be fitted OVER the link, NOT through it which would weaken the chain link. We could not find a larger size.
