Spin correlations in the t-channel single top quark production and its subsequent decay are investigated for the case of contributions involving anomalous Wtb couplings. It is shown that shapes of certain multidimensional kinematic distributions of final state particles are significantly different for the contributions proportional to different combinations of the anomalous couplings. Observed properties are confirmed by two methods of computations either from the obtained symbolic expression for the differential width of polarized three-particle top quark decay or by means of the CompHEP program for the complete process involving the t-channel single top.
