If you're not going to use it, I'd recommend removing it... and putting a proper chain pawl in its place.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I'd go with chain cleat. If it is backed, then I would think it was quite adequate for connecting the anchor to when stowed. I wouldn't use it for being at anchor.

It does look very much like a toe stubber too as somebody mentioned.
