Sometimes you need a cleat where there isn’t a factory fitted one! Enter Barton’s robust new 32mm Stainless Steel Sliding Cleat. It replaces the previous generation cast aluminium version providing a stronger, sleeker design for this popular car. Acting as a mid-ship spring cleat for yachts with limited access under the side deck or when you just need a temporary solution, simply remove a genoa track end stop, slide on the cleat and lock it in the desired position. Available to purchase now with an RRP of £140.66.
Mounted onto the push pit rail, the Stanchion Lead Block with Cleat enables cleating of the Genoa furler control line with one easy action, doing away with the need to cleat off on the deck or cockpit coaming. It fits 25mm diameter tubing. An adjustable, stainless steel securing ring enables fitting at the correct angle with additional adjustment of the cam cleat angle possible if required. The unit will fully rotate about the swivel head to match your pulling angle. Available in plain bearing (RRP £72.65) or ball bearing (RRP £76.54), the stanchion block with cleat assembly offers smooth running and a long service life.
