I'm looking for fender adjusters like the attached picture. Has anyone seen these available on-line? I have tried West Marine, Defender and etc.

Thanks, John

Sorry, I use a clove hitch.

A caution about tying your fenders to the tops of your rails, a rolling boat in a dock puts a lot of stress on them and you will get cracking and leaking at the stanchion bases, eventually.

It looks like a fenderhook product.

Regardless where you hang them, have a figure-8 knot at the end of the line so that if the line slips out of the cam, the fender won't be lost.

I like to tie a clove hitch and two half hitches but we have stainless steel life rails and stanchions all the way around. I have never lost or chased a fender using this method.

I read in another thread that if you use the right anchor you will not need to use a hitch on your bumper

Yes but that only applies if you have a galley down configuration. OP may not fall into this category.

Some claim (and I am not arguing otherwise, just have no first-hand experience) that it also works with single engines.

My wife got a couple of a competing brand at a boat show 3 years ago. Never use them. A clove hitch is quicker and has more uses.

I'm fine with the hitch. I single-hand often and prefer something I can adjust fast if I'm side tying or docking.
