Chain stopper

For anchoring operations the stopper bar is locked upright. When it is required to fix the position of the chain the stopper is lowered into the position shown. This allows the brake to be released and is typically used for stowing the anchor. chain stopper arrangements are not design to stop a runaway chain. Alternately an arrangement known as the 'devil's claw' may be used which has a forked locking piece. For smaller vessels, and where extra security is required bottle jacks with wire strops passed though the chain may be used
