Shockles® by Davis
Shockles products are U.S. designed and tested to reduce
shock loads that commonly occur around boats. On a dock or mooring line,
tensions are constant from tidal surges, wakes, winds or currents. Shockles are
also found outside the marine industry—anywhere loads are constant or extreme.
Shockles are commonly used for towing, securing loads, or in cases where a
metal band or rope is suddenly loaded up.
Shock Absorbing Solutions
LineSnubber, AnchorSnubber and DockShockle all feature a
patented line limiter and progressive tension design to ease constant or sudden
shock loads. Minimizing shock loads increases safety and adds to the longevity
of mooring lines, dock lines and anchor lines. Stress on the boat and
attachment points are also greatly reduced. Shockles are made with UV resistant
nylon webbing sewn over the patented internal line limiter and elastomer
system. 316 stainless steel hardware is used for strength, convenience and

use on any boat! Multi-purpose shock absorber that safely absorbs shock loads
in demanding situations.
Shockles® LineSnubber™, Black, 20" (51 cm)
Shockles are most commonly found around boats. They are
often used as shock absorbers on dock lines and anchor lines to reduce loads,
minimize chafe and increase safety. Shockles generally make life at the dock or
at a mooring safer and more comfortable.
Tensions and loads on a dock or mooring change as tidal
surges, wakes, winds and currents change. Shockles absorb shock loads on
mooring lines, making the lines last longer. Putting an end to jarring and
snapping at the end of the line makes time aboard more comfortable, too.
Shockles also safely absorb sudden shock loads, such as those at the end of a
tow line or created by a dinghy tied on deck or suspended by davits at the
- Progressive tension design means the further LineSnubber
stretches, the greater its return force. The result is smooth action and
- The patented internal line limiter is made of 2500 lb. (1140
kg) test nylon webbing. LineSnubber's outer sheath is 3500 lb. (1590 kg) test
tubular nylon webbing that is UV resistant to protect internal the parts.
- Shockles are strong, but they need to be rigged in-line so
they never bear the full load alone. Six to 12" (15-30 cm) of slack is
recommended. Increase line slack between the attachment loops to a maximum of
12" (30 cm) as loads increase.
- LineSnubber has a maximum stretch of 16" (40 cm) before
the line limiter safely stops further stretching.
- The slack line may be wrapped around LineSnubber to
"neaten" it up.
- Black LineSnubber with two 316 Stainless Steel Clips
- 20" (51 cm) length when relaxed. Can stretch to a
maximum length of 36" (91 cm).
