How to choose this product
Mooring springs are devices installed on a mooring line between boat and dock. They absorb sudden pull on the line from boat movement due to chop.
These devices are recommended for all craft docked in ports known for rough water, and where the frequent passage of large boats creates significant wake. They offer calmer nights to live-aboards and cruising sailors. They also extend the lifespan of dock lines.
The attachment point at each end of the mechanism is linked to the opposite end of the steel spiral. The two lengths of mooring line are tied to these points. Thus, tension on the line compresses the mechanism, creating a spring effect which absorbs sharp pulls on the line caused by sudden vessel movement.
Over time, the mechanism has a tendency to jam and creak. To counter this, some models include polyurethane rubber elements, increasing elasticity and reducing noise. A simple rubber ring is a cheaper, completely silent, but less durable option.
How to choose
Choice will depend on vessel size and, especially, weight.
