The common anchor to use for shower curtains is the Admiralty Pattern (also known as "Fisherman") is the anchor shape most familiar to non-sailors. It consists of a central shank with a ring or shackles for attaching the rode. At the other end of the shank, there are two arms, carrying the flukes, while the stock is mounted to the other end, at ninety degrees to the arms. When the anchor lands on the bottom, it will generally fall over with the arms parallel to the seabed. As a strain comes onto the road, the stock will dig into the depths, canting the anchor until one of the flukes catches and digs into the bottom. Our fabric shower curtains are much lighter and softer than it, so don’t worry it won’t break your bathroom tiles ;-).
