Flush Tie Downs help secure gear to any deck surface

by Martin Flory Group 3 Dec 2019 15:08 UTC

Clean lines enhance any boat's appeal, but that smooth look can make it difficult to find spots for securing loose gear. Cast stainless steel Accon Marine Tie Downs provide ideal anchor points for holding fenders or equipment in place while blending discreetly into the deck.

Available in large 89mm square by 32mm deep and small 51mm square by 25mm deep sizes, these streamlined tie downs mount nearly flush to the deck. They're ideal for use on poling or swim platforms, casting decks and other areas where gear like scuba tanks, fishing tackle or fenders must be secured.

To install Accon Marine Tie Downs, users simply drill a 64mm hole for the large model or a 38mm hole for the small version, then secure it in place with four screws. An included sealing cup protects against accidental water intrusion.

In independent testing, the small tie down held up to 1,361kg of strain without failing. Apart from boat decks, stainless steel Accon Marine Tie Downs are ideal for use on docks, tenders and personal watercraft.
