Because they're regularly used as a step or a place to sit, it's a good idea to keep gunwales as free of obstructions as possible. The space-saving Accon Marine 6" Cleat/Rod Holder Combo does just that. Eliminating the need for two separate installations, it's a flush-mounted rod holder with an integrated pull-up cleat that's both convenient and snag-free. Plus, it retains the clean lines of the boat's sheer.
The 6" Cleat/Rod Holder Combo is available in three versions to hold rods at 0°, 15° and 30° angles. Crafted from polished 316 marine-grade stainless steel, it's exceptionally strong. Independent testing verifies this product can withstand loads of up 11,000 lbs.
Designed to fit on a wide range of gunwales, the Accon 6" Cleat/Rod Holder Combo measures 7.57" L x 3.74" W x 8.38" D. A barbed fitting on the bottom allows a drain tube to be added for enclosed installations. This makes it ideal for use on everything from a bowrider to a hardcore offshore fishing platform.
Installing the 6" Cleat/Rod Holder Combo is a simple DIY project using common household tools and four 1/4" stainless screws with nylon lock nuts. The supplied backing plate is used as a template. Suggested retail prices start at $96.42.
