Simpler, stronger, and safer—that’s the MARQUIP tow plate. Its patented design lets you rig the bridle with only three shackles, eliminating the extra weight, cost, time, and risk of older-style flounder plates. The No. 2 plate features an extra hole for a tandem shackle to tow additional barges, or to haul in the bridle. Cast from nickel-chrome steel, MARQUIP plates also provide maximum corrosion resistance. They are available in 300,000-, 485,000-, and 624,000-pound pull test capacities, and can be certified on request.
