Originally Designed by Peter Bruce the Bruce or “Claw” anchor has since been mass produced by many casting firms around the world. Often these copies of copies of copies are far removed from the original specifications.
We decided to redesign this classic from toe to shank commissioning new moulds to include a finer entry on every point for better penetration in grass beds as well as a rebalanced overall feel. The standout feature on the LSM Hammer Claw is the new retrieval slide in the handle. The retrieval slide helps prevent anchor loss in rock and reef bottoms, simply drive over your anchor to remove the Hammer Claw form almost any substrate.
An affordable, fast setting option for most boaters and made for a large variety of substrate, Hammer Claw anchors are available in both galvanized and Stainless Steel finish; for boats to 60ft. Hammer Claw anchors feature a Lifetime Warranty against bending.
Testing Conditions are according to confidence in average substrates in each category for moderate conditions; anchors paired correctly to boat sizes as listed for monohull boats.
