I find that just using two screw pin anchor shackles allows enough play and rotation to orient our anchor. At most the anchor is out of alignment by 180 degrees. We have a grooved roller and I installed new chain 2 years ago. When I installed the chain I made sure there were no twists. We were anchored for over two months in one location last year and our boat was turning in circles due to winds and tides every day. Aside from the barnacles on the first 60 of chain, there were no issue with the chain twists working themselves out by the time the anchor reached our bow roller.
