Ultra Flip Swiven by QuicklineJun 3, 2008 Huntington Beach, Calif. – Quickline, a world-class importer of quality marine gear and accessory products, announced today the Ultra Flip Swivel. Effective and easy to use, the new Ultra Flip Swivel ensures a solid anchor set, as well as seamless retrieval and consistent stowage. Used to connect an anchor chain to a boat anchor, Quickline’s Ultra Flip Swivel efficiently rotates the anchor allowing it to flip over on recovery and automatically seat in the bow roller, eliminating the need for manual anchor rotation. Designed using 316L stainless, the highest quality stainless steel available, the swivel will not corrode and is the most powerful mono-block swivel on the market. In fact, it is stronger than the anchor chain. The Ultra Flip Swivel from Quickline provides boaters a safer, more flexible and worryfree anchoring experience.
The Quickline Ultra Flip Swivel provides boaters simple anchor retrieval. Its unique design allows the anchor to easily and automatically right and align itself with the bow roller, minimizing wear and tear on the windlass and saving boaters time and hassle on the rolling deck. The swivel head enables chain movement up to 30-degrees in every direction without disturbing or dislodging a set anchor, while the square head design prevents the attachment bolt from rotating. Providing easy passage for the anchor over the bow roller, the Ultra Flip Swivel causes positive anchor rotation ensuring it consistently stows properly and that the anchor will not bind. The Swivel is currently available for all chain sizes ranging from 1/4-inch to 3/4-inch; models for larger chain sizes may be specially ordered. The Ultra Flip Swivel’s innovative single-block design is machined from a solid block of 316L stainless steel, eliminating galvanized or corroded anchor chain shackles. Unlike other swivels on the market that are QUICKLINE INTRODUCES ULTA FLIP SWIVEL made of several parts, all subject to failure, the Quickline swivel has no material joints that can fail due to crevice corrosion.
“The Quickline Ultra Flip Swivel is designed for worry-free and safe anchoring all the time,” said Randy Boelsems, president, QuicklineUSA. “It eliminates problems during one of the most dangerous boating activities—recovering an anchor. With our swivel, there is no need for a boating partner to hang off the bow pulpit and manually rotate the anchor to fit the bow roller. The Ultra Flip Swivel is an essential component for every complete quality anchoring package.”
