There's a method for rigging these anchors that makes them reversible (i.e., you can dislodge them if they get hung without capsizing yourself), that entails installing an anchor shackle on the Crown end (the bottom, that's why the hole is there), attaching the anchor line there, and then using a thin zip-tie to attach the line to the anchor's Eye. In this fashion, if the anchor hangs, you yank the line hard enough to break the zip tie, the anchor flips over, and away you go. A heavy split ring or a carabiner will work instead of an anchor shackle, but I found that 1/4" dia. carabiners wouldn't pass through the crown eyelet. I don't see any anchor shackles in the ACK catalog, would be a handy thing to add! My only complaint about the anchor itself is that it might be nice to include a sheet with information about rigging it, like how to tie an anchor knot and how to do the reversible rigging.

These 3# folding grapnel type anchors are somewhat the standard in for kayak fishing. Heavy enough to hold you in current, fold up for storage and not overly heavy for lugging around. That said, I'm not thrilled with this one (or others like them.) The casting tends to be crude and the fit of the flukes and locking ring excessively sloppy. Even when locked open or closed there is allot of play in the flukes. Also, Mine weighed in at 3.4# which is more than I'd like (and advertised). I'd be allot happier if this anchor wasn't so clunky and offered in a 2.5# version. I'll likely replace it with something better once I find/make it but it will have to do for now.

This holds my Perception Pescador nicely in a stiff wind. Rig it so that the anchor line breaks away to a permanent knot on the top where the flukes are and you should almost always be able to retrieve it. The only draw back is the locking piece is practically useless to hold the flukes in place when the anchor is not in use although it does keep the flukes held in the open position well when deployed . A solid 4 stars only because the moving parts have a lot of play, but hey it's an anchor.

Works great, I had a 1.5 lb. anchor and it did not hold in breezy conditions or strong current this 3 pounder does the job and is of good quality.
