A challenge when installing hardware is that desirable flush-mounted cleats can't always be positioned where they're needed. Slim-Line cleats from Accon Marine utilize a sleek, space-saving design for easy and secure installation in places where other flush-mounted cleats simply won't fit.

The unique design profile of these cleats provides both boat owners and OEMs with maximum installation flexibility while maintaining a contemporary and elegant outward appearance. The recess cavity in the base allows the cleat to be easily grasped for quick and trouble-free deployment. When not in use, it retracts to a flush position to protect against stubbed toes or snagged fishing lines.

Crafted from marine grade 316 stainless steel for long life and great looks, Slim-Line cleats are available in 4.5", 6", 8" and 10" sizes. With a deck footprint as compact as 5" L x 1.3" W for the 4.5" model, and just 10.1" L x 2.8" W for the largest 10" model, these cleats allow unequalled versatility in both power and sail applications. Pricing ranges from $73.46 for the 4.5" Slim-Line cleat, to $211.39 for the 10" model.

Each cleat is shipped with a backing plate for ultra-secure mounting, which doubles as a convenient cut-out template. An available waterproofing cup can be installed with the cleat to protect against unwanted runoff below deck.
