Harken Standard Carbo-Cam Cleat
Tired of banging on the mainsheet to uncleat, or watching the cleat let go at just the wrong moment? Harken® ball bearing cam cleats hold lines securely and release instantly for easy, precise trimming. With a downward flick of the wrist, the sheet snaps into the cam—and stays exactly where you want it. Pull up and the cleat immediately releases—even under the highest loads. Smooth teeth grip line of all sizes including the small diameter hard line preferred by racers.
Multiple rows of high-load ball bearings reduce friction so cams open easily for snap-down, rather than draw-through cleating.
The cam horns and smooth V-shape guide line for easy entry. This allows precise sail control without having to readjust the cleated line. Rounded teeth hold securely by squeezing rather than cutting into line to reduce wear
Aluminum Cam-Matics® are hardcoat-anodized for high-load, high-wear, continuous adjustment applications. The PTFE surface of the aluminum Cam-Matic® improves the cleat’s fast line engagement. The Cam-Matic® is the only cleat that will engage under maximum line tension. Available in Micro, standard and Offshore sizes. The stainless steel Cam-Matic® is made of high-wear, investment–cast stainless that is mirror polished to a high luster. Available in Offshore model.
Lightweight fiber-reinforced Carbo-Cams® for racing where weight is critical, or where adjustments are less frequent. Available in Micro and standard sizes.
Ball bearings and Carbo-Cams® UV-stabilized with carbon-black additive for maximum protection.
