Cleats are essential pieces of marine hardware, but they can be in the way when not in use. Accon Marine's Folding Cleats enable owners to free up space and help prevent on-board hazards caused by tripping. The company offers them in push-button and manual styles.
The 333 and 332 models lock down and spring up when users push the release button. With the 300 Series, users can manually fold up or down the cleat whenever necessary. All Folding Cleats are constructed of marine grade 316 cast stainless steel and brightly polished. They're installed on the surface of the boat, so no cut-outs or hole saws are required. Drain tubes and receptacles are unnecessary since the Folding Cleats don't let water leak into the craft.
With the simplest fitting of any retractable cleat in the industry, owners only have to drill two holes with standard bits for the mounting screws or studs. A YouTube video can be viewed here: http://bit.ly/1MV0kut
Prices for Accon's 333 and 332 Folding Cleats start at $51.53. They are offered in 3.5", 4.5", 6" and 8" lengths and in stud-mount with hidden fasteners and through-bolt with visible screw hole versions. The 300 Series 4.5" Folding Cleat has a price of $33.26 with more sizes coming.
