Ruixo is better than traditional grapnels because it is foldable with auto-recovery armsvery long-lasting and rust-freelightweight, compact, easy to storeaquatic enviroment-friendlyadjustable gripping poweresasy to use repeatly

The auto-recovery system enables to anchor again without having to bring the Ruixo on board

Raising anchor only requires tying the line to any solid part of the vessel and moving either forwards or backwards.

COMPARATIVE ANCHORS - GRAPNELS

HOW THEY ACT WITH CHANGES IN SITE

Every time you have to change the area, you have to raise the anchor by breaking the safety and pulling the orinque or pulling the main line with the machine

When changing fishing grounds, you have to get it on board to straighten your arms. Depending on the material, they do not take long to break

It will never be necessary to bring it on board to examine it. It is always operational and at the command of the employer. You just have to drag it to the new position, where when you stop, it will immediately look for a new grip point

ANCHOR QUALITY AND DURATION

If it is not stainless, rust quickly appears, staining the parts of the boat in contact with it

They rust quickly, and they can also break easily after repeatedly bending the arms.

Its duration is unlimited thanks to the quality of its components (AISI 316 stainless steel, considered one of the best stainless steels for marine environments) and its structure of self-healing arms. Manufacture in small industrial series, which guarantees the quality of the products and the after-sales service..

GRIP CAPACITY

Good grip only on rocky bottoms

Good grip only on rocky bottoms

With their sharp nails and triangular plates, they offer incredible hooking capacity, similar to jig hooks used in fishing. Holds well on seaweed bottoms.

FOLD AND STOW

Very uncomfortable to stow. They get tangled up in ropes and lines. There is a danger that in the movements of the ship, it may move causing injury to the crew

Easy to fold. They take up little space on board

They are very simple and comfortable to stow. They fit in any small space on board. Once the day is over, the bolt is removed and folded back on itself, using the rubber bands to surround the body and prevent the arms from opening. If the cover has been purchased, they can be stowed in compromised places where there is danger of scratches or bumps.

PRICE

Very cheap with ferric metals. Very expensive in stainless steels. You can build them yourself

Affordable price on NON stainless steels or irons. Very expensive in stainless steel. It is the usual reason. It has not evolved.

They are manufactured in small industrial series, which guarantees the quality of the products and the after-sales service.

Given its advantages, the extra cost to acquire one, compensates and even supposes a long-term saving.

Operation

Determine the current conditions, assess the number of rubber anchor bands required and fit the auto-recovery bands on the Ruixó®.

Fasten the chain to the swivel , tie the line with extra length for each depth and cast it into the water. When it reaches the bottom it grips the first solid projection, however small, thereby anchoring the vessel.

The tires will work depending on the sea conditions. If more or less power is required, rubbers will simply be added or removed until the desired one is achieved.

Raising anchor only requires tying the line to any solid part of the vessel and moving either forwards or backwards.

  • Our models are designed for times when intense active surveillance can be exercised, since a change in sea conditions could loosen the RUIXO from its grip. It must be borne in mind that if this happened, the grapnel would immediately look for another projection where to grab again.
  • Do not drag the Ruixó along surface rocks as collision with these may cause deformation of the arms.
  • Always carry spare rubber anchor bands on board, both to replace damaged ones and to enhance gripping power. If they are not available, provisionally any elastic rubber, such as those for a bicycle or motorcycle tube, could be used while waiting for spare parts.

Gripping power can be enhanced by adding more rubber anchor bands to suit the requirements of the activity.

  1. Open Ruixó® as an umbrella upside down.
  2. Lowering the buffer tube.
  3. Fit the pin with closure.
  4. Take a rubber band and put it in the middle of the tube.
  5. With fingers put rubber band in each leg support.
  6. Placing a swivel in the tube.
  7. Fit chain and rope and ready to anchor!

¡VERY IMPORTANT! For fixed safe anchorage, Ruixó® can never take the place of a traditional anchor and chain system.

It is made up of a main body of stainless steel tube with five powerful steel arms held by hinges. The arms have an anchor to house up to five recovery rubbers and some plates welded at the end to improve grip on seaweed bottoms. A central slide fixed by a stainless steel screw will give the five arms a 45º opening, ideal for their function. The entire grapnel is made of AISI 316 stainless steel.
