This will happen when you have a chain or rope at rest.
Certainly with three-strand. Not with octoplait or 12-strand and not with chain. You could talk me into a swivel between three-strand and chain.
One shouldn't need a swivel just to align the anchor. There is some other alignment or fitment problem if you do.
