Pontoon Rail CleatThe Quick Cleat™ heavy-duty portable pontoon rail fender clip uses a no-knot Quick Cleat mounted on a stainless steel bracket for easy adjustment of fender height. The durable, all-metal construction is ideal for larger pontoon boats that use bigger fenders.


Position the portable fender clip along rail sections obstructed by tight fitting furniture or on any section of rail. No drilling is required. Rotate the Quick Cleat and insert the fender rope for a secure hold. Pull the rope upward to adjust the fender upwards. To adjust the fender downward, or to release the rope, simply rotate the cam to remove the rope. Anti-slip material keeps the clip positioned on the rail.

Works with 1/4"-3/8" standard fender ropes and 1/2" soft/hollow fender ropes. Designed to fit the most common, 1 1/4" square pontoon rails.
