By retracting flush into the deck when not required, pull-up cleats enhance a boat's appearance and safety. A fully self-contained design makes installing 460 Series Pull-Up Cleats from Accon Marine an easy DIY project. Whether updating an existing boat or outfitting a new one, these cleats add class to any vessel in just minutes.
Made from durable 316 marine-grade stainless steel, 460 Series Pull-Up cleats come in 4-1/2", 6", 8" and 10" sizes. The various models handle mooring lines from 1/2" up to 1". All feature a mounded base that allows splashes or rainwater to simply run off the unit without pooling. Convenient integrated tabs make it easy to pull the cleat up, and a smooth top makes comfortable work of pushing it down flush to the deck after use.
Installation requires only painter's tape and a drill with a 7/8" hole saw. Simply mask out the area with painter's tape and use the supplied template to mark the holes. Drill two 7/8" holes, remove the tape, and fit the cleat in place, securing it from below with included washers and locking nuts. A thread lock product such as Loctite helps complete the job.
To maintain, wash the cleat with soap and water to remove grime and dry with a soft cloth. A light spray coating of oil on moving parts helps this hardware provide a long service life. Suggested retail prices for Accon Marine 460 Series Pull-Up Cleats start at $70.23.
