Fender Hangars

Anyone ever tried these?

I have been looking for an easy way to attach fender lines to stanchions so the admiral doesn't had to tie a bowline under pressure.

Thanks,

Joe

My Admiral has been trying to perfect the clove hitch for years. I even gave her a practice line to use around the house but she still looked real closely at similar fender hangers at the Annapolis show.

Now we have another winter for her to practice and hopefully perfect the clove hitch.

I have those and they work as claimed. I still have a clove hitch to the lifeline, but use the hanger to adjust the fender height.

My fenders have brass snaps fitted to a spliced loop on the fender line...as my stanchions have bails at the base, I just clip the fenders on. Works very well.

Nickel Plated Brass Flag Snap
Stainless Fitting

Clove hitch is the answer.

A clove hitch will loosen without tension.

Both of the cruising standards I teach use a round turn and two half hitches for fenders.

I put two on each side this summer & love them. I am on a mooring though and use them for the occasional trip to the town dock. Make for very quick deploy, retrieval & adjustment.
