Gear: Folding Line Chocks Offer Surface Mount Versatility

Folding Chocks

Chocks that hold mooring lines in position enhance the functionality of any boat but can be difficult to install where they’re needed most, such as over bulkheads, adjacent to railings, on swim platforms or on narrow deck spaces. Accon Marine 502 series Surface Mount Folding Chocks not only boast a low-profile design but eliminate the need for cut-outs altogether. They facilitate quick and easy DIY installation just about anywhere, requiring only three screws.

Accon Surface Mount Folding Chocks flip up with light finger pressure when needed, then fold flat when no longer required. This helps preserve a vessel’s clean, uncluttered look while eliminating potential for snagging fishing lines, sheets, straps or other personal items.

Engineered from corrosion-resistant 316 stainless steel for exceptional strength and durability, Accon 502-4 version chocks measure under 4″ L x 2-1/2″ W to easily fit crowded deck spaces. Overall height is 1-1/2″ when extended to accommodate up to 5/8″ dia. lines. For larger vessels, Accon 502-6 chocks measure 5-1/4″ L and just over 3″ W, with an overall extended height just under 2″, for mooring lines up to 3/4″ dia.

Sold in pairs (one port and one starboard)  throughout Canada MSRP for Accon Marine 502-4 Surface Mount Folding Chocks is US$164.66. The larger 502-6 version is US$268.16.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
