This accessory expands the capability of conventional Clamcleat® rope cleats. The Keeper has been 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.
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.
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.
