Product Information

  • Clamcleat ® Auto-Release Racing Mini Cleat - CL257

    The Clamcleat ® CL257 Auto-Release cleat holds ropes securely but will release them immediately when the cleat is overloaded. Once tripped, it can be easily reset in seconds by just pushing the cleat back down into its base.

    This release cleat is perfect for locking down your rudder blade yet allowing it to flip-up if it hits the bottom or a solid obstacle in the water.

    The CL257 is also fitted with an adjustable cam so that the release tension can be set to suit the boat and local conditions. The cam is adjusted until the rudder blade is held down reliably under maximum sailing conditions. The CL257 will then be set so that the least strain is put on the rudder if it hits an obstacle.

    The CL257 can be fitted to virtually all lifting tillers and can also be used to protect centre boards.

Very effective

No more worrying about coming into shore and forgetting about the rudder!
Single handed sailing always a handful - sorting out the centre board, jib, mainsheet, tiller - and remembering to release the rudder before reaching the shore. This handy gadget is no substitute for releasing the rudder, but it gives inexperienced sailors peace of mind for those tricky situations when time is not on your side.

Clever and useful

I will be using this on my rudder downhaul. Should work well.
