Features & Benefits


- The GRIP-position. 
The anchor flips easily up into the GRIP-Position for a quick action (#1,#2 see below).  It then stands in a 3 point position with over 55% of its weight on the forward pointed bill, especially beneficiary on rock where it soon finds a cleft to hang in to.
- One pointy bill.  From the GRIP-position (#2) the pointed bill works at all time effectively in all types of sea-beds.  All developing forces are centered in the structure  - No bending! 
- Horizontally balanced.  The sideway forces, bill-forces, acting on the bill, centerpiece, quickly turns the anchor (#3) into a horizontally stabilized position (#5), where the centerpiece is vertical.  There are then NO bill-forces acting form either side of the bill.

- 360 degrees veering.  Wind and current direction changes makes the anchor tilt, slightly, side-ways.  Also here the bill-force works extremely positive (see horizontally balanced above), as it automatically counteracts, thriving to level the anchor back horizontally as it goes around.  In the same time it continuously fights for a maximum GRIP!
- The Compression-effect.  When the anchor is embedded, a compression-effect is developed, in the tunnel between the top and bottom flukes, which generates a massive holding power!

- Easy release.  The great leverage of the shank against the break-point, advanced, (~300% greater then other 2 pies anchors),  grants for an exceptionally easy retrieval from a secure and safe hold.
- The sideways supported shank.  The upper bill supports the shank however the anchor falls, turns.  No twisting or bending!
- Angle adjustment.  By just inserting a bolt into the shank changes the angle of attack.  NO disassembling of the anchor needed!
- Versatile anchor, delivers more holding power with less weight than other same size anchors.  Low weight to holding power ratio!
- Strong "STEALTH" design, combines the best features of plow, fluke, and lightweight type anchors for a quick and secure hold in all types of sea-beds!  Also other NEW unique never used features (see above) are used in the Hans "Stealth" Anchor,
- Long-lasting performance.  Made of Hi-Tensile steel Hot-Dipped galvanized, or stainless steel.
- Best Value and Safety, offered by HANS "Stealth" Anchor, giving great piece in mind!
