Easily upgrade boat hardware in minutes

Aug 29, 2023

Many owners hesitate to upgrade their boat’s hardware because they lack the confidence or equipment to make the requisite deck cut-outs. Accon Marine offers a solution in its range of surface-mount accessories that install in minutes with just a drill and a screwdriver and feature easy snap-in and snap-out operation.

The 401 Series hardware options have Accon Marine’s Quick Release Base in common, fitting to a range of Bimini top hinges, fender hangers, and stylish drink holders. An integrated quick release tab makes it easy to use, move and remove components with push-button convenience.

Crafted from durable 316 marine grade stainless steel for exceptional strength and corrosion resistance, the 401 Quick Release Base mounts to any horizontal or vertical surface with just two #10 stainless steel screws. Apart from eliminating deck cut-outs, this simple design affords placing exactly where needed, without regard for bulkheads or other obstacles.

To assist in raising and lowering sunshades, the Accon Quick Release Bimini Top Hinge enables rapid securing and removal of standard pin-style legs, while the Side Mount version comes in models to accept 7/8″ or 1″ tubing. The Quick Release Bimini Strap Hinge helps keep straps organized, and its Turnbuckle variation offers the ability to adjust tension instantly. All keep the hardware attached to the Bimini once it’s released from the base, making one less thing to lose onboard.

To de-stress docking or raft-ups, Accon offers Quick Release Fender Hangers in 1/2″ and 1″ diameters. The rings remain secured to the fender line when not in use, eliminating repetitive tying and untying. 

Helping keep beverages at hand, Accon has both Single and Double Drink Holders. Both feature an open design with sturdy 3-1/2″ dia. arms and flat bottoms that don’t collect condensation. 
With their tremendous versatility, durable construction and easy surface-mount installation, these Accon accessories make upgrading older or worn-out boat hardware a DIY project anyone can tackle.
