Mooring Snubbers, 23-1/4" - FO1400
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.
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.

It's a big rubber band that connects to your dock lines to help with the tug from the weather and water. This review writes itself. They work. Period. 4 stars because they don't blow my mind. They are thick and they are worth it. They work. I like that my boat doesn't get these violent tugs from the dock like it did before I installed them. Super easy to use.
Flimsy. Doesn’t hold its shape with a 31 ft boat. Might be fine for something in the 20ft range.
Worked well but expected it to be thicker
Great low chafe design - good deal price!- bought 8 for our 32ft sailboat - one on each lines, getting ready for hurricane season here in Florida
Protects boat lines from snapping by allowing stretch when unusual waves hit dock. Storms are a real problem without these
