While large vessels require heavy-duty deck hardware, that doesn't mean it has to look like it came off a workboat. Available in 12" and 15" models, the Accon Marine Pull-Up Cleat retracts flush into its base for a clean and elegant appearance, yet is built to handle the loads a docked yacht places on it.
Manufactured of polished marine-grade 316 stainless steel, Accon Pull-Up Cleats have soft, rounded edges that won't catch toes when retracted. To use, the cleat is simply grabbed in the center and pulled out of the base; precision machining ensures smooth operation. They're available in through-bolt and stud mount versions, and include a waterproofing cup to stop unwanted water runoff below deck.
The 12" model Pull-Up Cleat accommodates line up to 3/4" and loads up to 14,000 lbs. The through-bolt model 205-12 installs with four 5/16" screws; the stud mount version 205-12-S includes 3" stainless steel studs.
For line sizes up to 1" and loads up to 20,000 lbs, the 15" Pull-Up Cleat is the largest flush-mounted cleat available. Model 115-15 installs with four 3/8" screws, while version 115-15-S utilizes 4" studs.
Installation of an Accon Pull-Up Cleat is straightforward and can be accomplished with standard household tools. The included stainless steel backing plate serves as a convenient cut-out template.
MSRP for the Accon Marine 12" Pull-Up Cleat is $429.45 for the 205-12 model and $452.12 for 205-12-S. The 15" 115-15 version is $930.26 and $932.84 for the 115-15-S. They come with a two-year warranty.
