Gear: Large Pull-Up Cleats

Accon Marine Pull-Up Cleats

The aesthetics of large yachts and sportfish boats often come from clean sweeping lines. An uncluttered deck with hidden hardware adds to this effect. Engineered for just this purpose, 12″ and 15″ pull-up cleats from Accon Marine provide necessary mooring points for heavy vessels yet retract flush into the deck to maintain a modern and stylish appearance.

Accon Pull-Up Cleats are made from polished marine-grade 316 stainless steel for exceptional strength, durability and corrosion resistance. The 12″ model 205-12 handles line sizes up to 3/4″ and loads of up to 14,000 lbs. The larger 15″ version 115-15 can take lines up to 1″ and loads to 20,000 lbs. It’s the largest flush-mounted cleat available in the market.

When needed, finger and thumb indents allow the horns to be pulled up from the base.  A precision-machined grip ensures smooth and effortless operation. When no longer required, they’re pushed back flush with the deck.

Installation is straightforward. The 12″ model thru-bolts using four 5/16″ screws. The 15″ version is offered in 4″ stud-mount and thru-bolt configurations. All styles include a waterproofing cup and a backing plate that serves as a mounting template. MSRP for the 12″ model is US$429.45; the 15″ versions are US$932.84 stud-mount and US$930.26 for thru-bolt.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
