This is a very robust mooring cleat for use on 1" T track. It is investment cast in one piece from stainless steel. This helps it to develop its high 2500 pound safe working load. Use it anywhere along the track as a midship cleat for use with spring lines. For an article explaining just how useful a midship cleat can be, read The Importance of a Midship Mooring Cleat .
In addition to its high strength, it has the distinct advantage of having a large opening in the center of the cleat. You can easily pass an eye splice right through, then loop it over the ears. Adjust your mooring line. When you depart for the day, just slip the splice off the midship
cleat and leave it secured to the dock. When you return, it is waiting to be quickly and properly secured again. It's just the right length without any fiddling or adjustment before you can leave the boat.
Quick and easy to adjust, simply lift the lever, slide the cleat, then release the lever and the pin drops into your selected adjustment hole in the track.
Frankly, due to their high cost, we sell fewer of these than our less expensive models shown below. But they are one important element if you want a quick, easy, and robust mooring system.
