Cleats on deck are stumbling blocks and line catchers. The new CLIP-cleat always remains closed, no matter whether it is belayed or not. This increases security aboard. The rotating ends consistently keep the cleat closed. No lines can get caught nor can anyone be injured. Using only one hand, the CLIP-cleat is very easy to make things fast. The spring-loaded ends can be pressed aside with the line in hand and automatically they snap back to the mid position. It is always possible to release.
Statement of the jury
The cleverly designed, high-quality cleats eliminate a common problem on board, thus increasing safety.
