Birdsall Fender Cleats provide proper fender placement for tying off your boat. They allow you to use the existing rod holders as fender hangers, which are already located in the ideal location when rafting or tying up to the dock.
Not satisfied where the manufacturer placed the cleats furthest aft on my new boat, I searched for hours to find a solution. The two straight rod holder cleats I received today are perfect! At $79.00 per cleat, they’re a bit expensive. But they don’t look like some of the less expensive, cheasy-looking aftermarket rod holder cleats you’ll find elsewhere. These cleats are well-built, too. In fact, they’re better built than I thought they would be. A white protective jacket encases the lower section of the cleat that rests in the rod holder. Deep grooves are cut into the base of the cleat to prevent the cleat from shaking or rotating in the rod holder. Would highly recommend these cleats.
works great...super functional
