As wind, currents and wake action move a boat in its slip, dock lines are constantly rubbing against the pier and vessel and being abraded. If the line breaks, replacing it may be the least expensive thing to worry about as an unsecured boat can do a lot of costly damage. Secure® Removable Chafe Guards from Davis Instruments are the quick and easy solution to protect braided and three-strand cordage in high-wear areas and increase their usable lifespans.
Made from rugged UV-stabilized nylon webbing, Secure Removable Chafe Guards are 16" long and sold in pairs. Inside is 100% Velcro® hook fasteners that grip 3/8"–1" lines without slipping. Rolled onto the rope snugly, it's compact and pliable enough to fit through chocks.
Secure Removable Chafe Guards have a wide range of uses. They prevent chafing over a cleat, cap rail or anchor roller, and when two lines cross. If a line needs to be adjusted, they're easy to move into position.
Available in white or black, Davis Instruments Secure Chafe Guards cost $29.99 a pair.
