Buy the right swivel and it is stronger than the chain and rig it right and it not subject to any side loading.

They don't have to be a weak point at all and do make it easier on some vessel pulpits to retrieve a large anchor.

Reckon i'll be getting rid of this swivel and s/s shackles and putting on a single decent tested one.
New anchor needs the extra couple of hundred mm.
Rollers are grooved, so hoping that helps.
