HEAVY-DUTY CLEATS ADD FORM AND FUNCTION TO LARGE BOATS
Published: Tuesday, September 30, 2014
Large boats need large hardware. Accon Marine offers flush-mounted 12" and 15" Pull-Up Cleats designed for boats over 40', helping maintain a yacht's good looks without sacrificing performance.
Cleats offer a highly convenient method for securing a yacht, but can get in the way when not in use. When ready to tie up, the user simply pulls the cleat above deck. When no longer needed, the cleat pushes down to stow neatly inside its base.
With a 12.6" length overall, the 12" cleat measures 3.7" at its widest point and extends 6" deep. Accon's 15" cleat, the largest flush-mounted cleat available, measures 17" overall in length and 5.3" at its widest point, extending down 7.1"
Made of marine-grade 316 stainless steel, each cleat is supplied with a waterproofing cup. Installation is simple since these cleats come with a backing plate which also serves as the cut-out template.
The 15" Pull-Up Cleat is offered in through-bolted and stud mount versions. Stud length is 4". With stud mounting, the cleat attachment points remain hidden from view for a seamless appearance.
Accon Marine's 12" Pull-Up Cleat has a price of $351.16. The 15" Pull-Up Cleat Through-Bolted costs $760.66, while the Stud Mount version is $762.77.
