Clamcleat CL258AN - Racing Fine Line (Starboard)
The tooth design of the Clamcleat® CL258 Racing Fine Line (Starboard) allows a quick, positive lock that is easy to release. Add this to its' low profile and ability to hold high loads, makes it an ideal cleat for adjusting leech lines on larger sails. Use a backplate when riveting a cleat onto fabric to prevent the rivet pulling through. It can be mounted in two positions and can be sewn or riveted to the sail. Also used for industrial blinds and as a deck cleat on dinghies.
Manufactured from aluminium for light weight and durable performance the CL258AN has a hard anodised finish to give the ultimate hard wearing surface. (Note that alloy cleats should be sewn onto carbon fibre sails, to avoid corrosion.)
This cleat is also used to secure lines on ladders used by engineers working up telegraph poles.
