Transom Cross Tie Cleat

The new Taco Marine® Transom Cross Tie Cleat gets dock lines up and away from outboard motors when tying off at the stern.

The portable, 15° cleat, which also helps protect motor cowlings, will accommodate up to 3/4 inch dock lines and features a patent-pending latch for easy insertion and a secure hold in standard, 1-5/8 inch diameter open bottom gunnel rod holders.

A reusable mesh storage bag is included with the purchase of the Transom Cross Tie Cleat. It is ideal for quick drying of the cleat and to prevent scratches on deck or storage surfaces. Not intended for permanent docking.
