Slim-Line Cleats Perfect For Narrow, Cluttered Gunwales
March 1, 2021
Many gunwales are too narrow to install a traditional cleat, especially if sail track or other hardware is present. For these applications, pull-up 304 Series Slim-Line™ Cleats from Accon Marine are the perfect solution. Available in four sizes, they recess into their base for a sleek appearance and snag-free profile.
Made of polished marine grade 316 stainless steel, Slim-Line Cleats are flush-mounted for a custom look. Offered in 4.5", 6", 8" and 10" sizes, they measure only 1.3", 1.5", 2" and 2.8" wide, respectively.
Slim-Line Cleats are simple to use. To deploy, the cleat is grabbed and pulled up; when the line is removed, it's pushed back into the base.
Each Accon 304 Series Slim-Line Cleat comes with a backing plate that serves as a cut-out template. Installers only need to drill four holes and saw-cut a clearance between the center holes. Available waterproofing cups can be added to prevent runoff below deck.
The MSRP for Accon Marine's 4.5" Slim-Line Cleat is $74.93; the 6" version is $84.83; the 8" model is $139.53 and the 10" cleat is $215.61. They come with a two-year warranty.
