The Clamcleat rope keeper CL814 gives the famous Clamcleats another option. The keeper was designed to overcome the problem of lines being cleated accidentally as well as improving performance by holding lightly-loaded lines in the jaws of a cleat when mounted upside down.
The keepers will keep a rope in the cleat, or keep it out of the cleat.
The Clamcleat CL814 Keeper fits cleats CL203; CL203W/S1; CL211 Mk1; CL217 Mk1; CL218 Mk1; CL236. It can also be used with CL816 Cage and CL818 Tapered Pad.
When using a cleat fitted with a Keeper, the operation and performance is completely transformed. The lead-in makes cleating a line easier and there is a satisfying and positive click as the line is released or cleated. These benefits mean that Clamcleat® rope cleats can now be used on control lines that are adjusted frequently.
When a halyard or control line is released from a cleat fitted with a Keeper, the Keeper will stop it falling back into the cleat and re-cleating, for example when dropping a spinnaker during a race or the mainsail when unrigging ashore.
