This stainless steel Samson post, or Sampson, measures 5 1/2 inches tall by 7 3/4 inches from the tip of one “arm” over to the other one. It weighs just over 2 pounds. The base measures 5 7/8 inches by 4 5/8 inches.
Basically, a Samson post is a strong pillar fixed to a ship’s deck to act as a support for tackle or other equipment. It can also be used in securing a cable (as the anchor cable).
Several pieces of this Samson post in stock.
