Mooring  Swivels
Figure 4-3.–Chain swivel. Chain  Swivels Chain swivels (fig. 4-3) are furnished as part of the outboard swivel shot. They reduce kinking or twisting of the anchor chain. Bending   Shackles Bending shackles (fig. 4-4) are used to attach the anchor to the chain. Outboard Swivel Shots Standard and alternate outboard swivel shots also called “bending shots,”  consist of common links and fittings as shown in figure 5-4. They are fitted to attach the 15 fathom shots of anchor chain to the anchor. They also make it possible to stop off the anchor outboard of the swivel and break the chain at the detachable link inboard of the swivel. This allows the anchor chain to be used as part of the towing gear. Outboard swivel shots vary in length, but they usually do not exceed 5 fathoms. The taper pins in the detachable links in the outboard swivel shot are additionally secured with a U-shaped, stainless steel wire-locking clip (sometimes called a hairpin). This hairpin, inserted in holes drilled through the coupling plates, engages a keyway or groove on the taper pin and is mandatory. (See fig- ures 4-2 and 4-4.) Riding,  Housing,  and  Towing  Chain  Stoppers Riding and housing chain stoppers consist of a turnbuckle inserted in a couple of links of chain. A pelican hook is attached to one end of the chain; a shackle is attached at the other end. The housing stopper is nearest the hawsepipe and must be installed outboard of the swivel; the riding stopper is farther inboard. These   stoppers   are   secured   by   the   shackles   to permanent pad eyes on the ship's deck Chain stoppers Figure 4-4.–Outboard swivel shot arrangement. 4-5
