Lift-It® Chafing Gear protects expensive mooring and tow lines from damage. Easy to install and remove, Chafing Gear works equally as well with chain and wire rope assemblies. Chafing Gear is available in three materials: Web, Bulked Nylon or Felt. Chafing Gear made with Web (3/16"thickness) is the most popular. Chafe Gear with Bulked Nylon (3/32"thickness) is four times more abrasion resistant than Web Chafe Gear. Felt Chafe Gear (1/4" thickness-high density felt) provides a "cushion" effect.
