These Five Oceans' highly elastic rubber snubbers stretch to absorb shock loads on dock lines. You can attach them without knots or hardware and you can adjust the resiliency by wrapping more or less line around it.
These snubbers extend the life of dock lines and prevent line breakage due to sudden jolting and excess stretching that can take a line beyond its parting strength. They also provide your boat maximum protection against the stress caused by wind, waves, and wakes.
Note: The dock line feeds through an eye on one end of the snubber, then wraps around the snubber a few times before leading through the eye at the other end (as shown in image). These lines snubbers are meant to absorb the shock of a quick stop as the boat shifts with wind or current.
