    If you really need/want it, why not have one made. I’d expect to pay half the chandlery price.

    I’ve never seen one before, I’ve never considered it a possibility of losing my anchor. If I did I’d simply use some rope to tie it down. One less obstruction on deck to stub your toe on or trip over.

    I know tow people who have lost anchors. Loosing the anchor is no issue. The damage it does is.

    One was a windy. It wrapped round the props and trashed the lot.

    Other was a bigger boat. Anchor deployed in heavy weather. No damage.

    I would not leave port without an anchor clip. Trusting the anchor on the winch clutch alone and the potential damage it could do are not worth it
