Chain stoppers are also known as cable stoppers and are a device (hook) that secures the anchor chain when the anchor is raised, taking the strain away from the windlass while the ship is in motion. It should be able to withstand a pull of 80% of the breaking load on its chain.
Mooring chock is a fitting with a gap at the top, through which a rope or line is run. The mooring chock on this page is called a bulwark mounted chock. It is a round or oval shaped cast steel component that is usually embedded into the bulwark of ships.
Fairlead is a device that guides ropes or cables around an object, out of the way or to prevent it from moving laterally. Fairleads are typically a ring or a hook, and they may be a separate piece of hardware, or a hole in the structure.
Bollard is also known as a ship bitt, and is a short vertical post, originally meant to be a post used on a ship or a quay, for mooring. It is usually either a wooden or iron post found as a deck fitting on a ship or boat, used to secure ropes for towing, mooring and other purposes.
