Chocks Protect Without Altering Clean Sheer

Chocks are workhorses, ensuring dock lines don’t place a strain on rails or stanchions or damage gelcoat. The 500-series of Flush-Mount Chocks from Accon Marine facilitate the work but retract into their base to maintain a boat’s clean sheer.

Accon Flush-Mount Chocks are made from highly polished marine-grade 316 stainless steel. Available in 4-1/2″ and 6″ sizes, for 5/8″ and 3/4″ lines respectively, they’re offered as a straight chock for use aft, and as a pair of angled port and starboard skene bow chocks.

Using Accon Flush-Mount Chocks couldn’t be easier. They’re simply pulled up from their base with a finger. When lines are cast off, they retract neatly back into place.

Installing Flush-Mount Chocks is simple with household tools and the included cut-out template. The 4-1/2″ model has a 4-5/8″ L x 1-1/2″ W base that surface mounts with two #10 screws. The 6-1/8″ L x 2-3/4″ W base of the 6″ version fastens with two 1/4″ screws.

Suggested retail prices for Accon Marine Flush-Mount Chocks are $168.50 for a set of 4-1/2″ port and starboard angled chocks (model 500) and $84.25 for the 4″ straight stern chock (501-4). The 6″ versions are $258.42 (model 500-6) and $129.21 (501-6). Folding models are also available.
