RETRACTABLE LINE CHOCKS KEEP DECK CLEAR

Boat owners usually think about line chocks in two sets of circumstances.

First, when they're needed to guide dock or anchor lines from port, starboard or stern to prevent marring the vessel's gelcoat. The other is when they wish the darn things weren't snagging their fishing lines, serving as sneaky trip hazards, tangling their sheets or just interfering with a boat's clean look.

Fortunately, Accon Marine offers solutions that only protrude above deck when they're needed.
Accon's Folding Chock does just as the name implies; its steel line guides fold down, out of the way, until it's time to dock again. It easily surface-mounts to the deck with just three screws—no cutouts required.


The unique Accon Marine Line Chock uses the same clever mechanism as the company's acclaimed Pop-Up Cleat. It comes with a template to help accurately cut a hole in the deck and attaches with two screws. An optional drain fitting is available.


Both the Accon Marine Folding Chock and the Line Chock designs utilize marine-grade 316 stainless steel and are available in 4-1/2" and 6" models.

Drop shot rigging is a staple presentation of serious bass fans from coast to coast. But it remains a largely overlooked option for anglers pursuing other species of gamefish, including crappies.
