Contemporary boat designs have become sleeker and more angular. Matching this modern aesthetic are the new 490 Series Rectangular Pull-Up Cleats from Accon Marine. For safety and an appealing appearance, the gleaming 152mm, 203mm and 254mm fittings sit nearly flush with the deck or gunwale when not in use, and lift effortlessly to reveal a cleat with serious holding strength.

Accon's 490 Series Rectangular Pull-Up Cleats are forged from 316 marine-grade stainless steel and polished to a high sheen. Slightly arched, they blend seamlessly into the deck with minimal protrusion and have molded-in fingertip notches on either side for easy deployment. The 152mm model is only 38mm wide and is designed to accommodate up to 16mm line; the 203mm L x 41mm W version is for 19mm cordage; and the large 254mm L x 48mm W model fits rope up to 25mm in diameter.

Mounting the cleat is simple. Ensuring there is 38mm of space below, the gelcoat is masked and marked with the supplied template. Two 22mm holes are then drilled. Supplied lock washers and nuts are tightened from underneath; using thread lock ensures they won't loosen.

For over 30 years, Accon Marine has manufactured superior-quality boat hardware. Inventor of the pioneering Pop-Up® cleat, it offers a wide range of fittings, lights and accessories.
