Accon Marine 209 Series Lifting Cleats © Martin Flory Group

Boat decks often seem to bristle with hardware, spoiling the vessel's smooth lines and creating potential tripping hazards. Accon Marine 209 Series Lifting Cleats combine lifting eyes and mooring cleats into a single multipurpose, integrated component. Best of all, they neatly retract flush into the deck when not in use.

Available in 152mm, 203mm and 254mm sizes, Accon Lifting Cleats are made from 316 stainless steel for maximum corrosion resistance. The lifting hardware is crafted from high-strength 304 stainless steel.

Each comes complete with a standard 305mm rod, sling, cross bar and bow eye. Independent lab testing confirms the cleat's maximum working load as 1,814kg. Extra-long rods are also available, allowing the 209 Series to suit a diverse range of applications.

All models utilize through-bolted installation. The 254mm cleat is also offered in a stud-mounted style without visible bolt heads.
