Retractable Cleat Doubles As Lifting Point

Cleats are an essential piece of deck hardware — especially if they can double as a lifting point. Accon Marine 209 Style Pull-Up Cleats not only secure a vessel when docked or being hoisted, but they retract into the deck to create a safe and snag-free surface and a clean, modern appearance.

Manufactured from marine-grade 316 stainless steel, Accon Pull-Up Cleats don’t require a waterproofing cup. Instead, they feature a unique sealed base with an optional drain fitting. The included backing plate serves as the cut-out template, making through-bolt installation a breeze. Available in 4.5″, 6″, 8″ and 10″ sizes, the latter is also offered in a stud-mount configuration.

Enabling the lifting point muscle power of a Pull-Up Cleat requires adding only an Accon 12″ threaded rod shank, sling, cross bar and bow eye. The maximum working load is 4,000 lbs. in the direction of the axis of the threaded rod shank only.

Accon Marine 209 Series Mooring Cleats range in price from $95.12 to $322.49. Lifting Cleat versions with stainless steel hardware cost $260.85 to $459.71, depending on the model.
