Accon Marine Pop-Up Cleats Enhance Safety

Posted by Michelle Howard

Few things can pull the fun out of a day on the water like stubbing or even breaking a toe on a hard metal boat cleat. Innovative 202 Series Pop-Up Cleats from Accon Marine retract flush with the deck when not in use, minimizing tripping and snagging hazards onboard.


Made of marine-grade 316 stainless steel, these attractive cleats pop up at the push of a button, then simply push back down when no longer needed. When raised, they function exactly like traditional fixed models. Retracted, they eliminate the potential for painful stubbed toes-an important safety consideration for young families. Anglers love them too, since they won't snag fishing gear like traditional cleats can.


Available in 4-1/2", 6", 8" and 10" sizes to fit a wide range of boats, each cleat is shipped with a backing plate that also serves as a convenient cut-out template. Waterproofing cups are optional. Mounting is easy, requiring only four stainless steel bolts.


Accon Marine 202 Series Pop-Up Cleats retail for $112.18, $121.83, $160.84 and $251.46 respectively, for the 4", 6", 8" and 10" models. The company likewise offers stud mount versions that install with no visible screw holes in 6", 8" and 10" sizes.
