Contemporary boat designs favor sleek, flowing forms with an emphasis on clean contours. Slim-Line Cleats from Accon Marine work well within this theme and have a versatile, space-saving configuration that fits where other retractable cleats won't.

Crafted from marine-grade 316 stainless steel for exceptional corrosion resistance and extreme durability, Slim-Line Cleats sit flush when not in use, preserving the boat's stylish profile. Discreet, matching recesses in the head and base enable easy grasping for quick and effortless deployment. A simple downward push returns the cleat to its retracted position.

Accon Marine Slim-Line Cleats are offered in 114mm, 152mm, 203mm and 254mm sizes to suit a wide range of marine applications, and can accommodate maximum line sizes of 13mm, 16mm, 19mm and 25mm, respectively. Optional waterproofing cups are available for each model to prevent unwanted runoff below decks.

Each Slim-Line Cleat is sold with a backing plate, which also serves as a convenient cut-out template. Installation is a simple matter of drilling four holes, then making a clearance between the two center holes with a saw or router.
