Boat cleats are an integral part of docking and tying up your boat. They are used to tie ropes through during the docking process to secure your vessel to the dock. These cleats or rope cleats take on a large amount of stress and may need to be upgraded or replaced. This inexpensive boat part is easy to replace and can provide peace of mind that your boat is going to remain securely attached to the dock.
While traditional horn boat cleats are the most common, over the last several years new variations of rope cleats are being developed and manufactured. Wholesale Marine carries a wide variety of boat cleats from brands such as Davis, Sea Dog, Taco Marine, Attwood, Perko, JIF Marine, and others. The Nylon Heavy-Duty Open Base Cleat from Sea Dog is a great economical choice for most boats whereas the Attwood Stainless Steel Flush Mount Marine Cleat is worthy of any yacht.
All Types Of Marine Cleats At Wholesale Marine
Horn cleats are the most popular type of cleat used in many boating applications. This traditional designed cleat has two “horns” that are installed parallel to the dock. We carry a wider variety of horn cleats in various materials. The Sea Dog Open Base Aluminum Dock Cleat is a standard horn cleat made with die-cast aluminum construction.
Flip-up cleats are designed to be hidden when not in use. They work in the same manner as traditional horn cleats, but can be concealed when not in use for a more clean look for your boat or dock. The Whitecap Stainless Steel Pull-Up Boat Cleat offers durable stainless steel construction with a flush recessed design.
Other types of boat cleats include zig-zag, cam, and clam. Sea Dog designed a nylon zig-zag cleat that allows you to weave your dock line with no knots needed and provides a secure hold with less slippage. The clam cleat pinches the line in a V-shaped slot.
