Space-Saving Hardware Holds Line & Rod

When it comes to adding hardware, gunwales can fill up fast. The Cleat/Rod Holder Combo offered by Accon Marine combines the practicality of a pull-up cleat with a dedicated fishing rod holder in a small footprint. Plus, the almost-flush mounting won’t detract from the boat’s clean lines.

The 9814 Accon Cleat/Rod Holder Combo is manufactured from polished marine-grade 316 stainless steel for maximum durability and corrosion resistance. It accommodates up to 0.5″ line and 0.7″ rod butts. Available with a choice of a 0°, 15° or 30° rod offset angle, the hardware measures a compact 7.57″ L x 3.74″ W x 8.38″ D.

Using the innovative Cleat/Rod Holder Combo is easy. When the cleat is needed, it’s simply pulled up from the base where it can secure up to a 9,700 lb. load. Afterwards, it’s retracted back into the base, ready to hold a rod.

A simple DIY project using common household tools, the Accon Cleat/Rod Holder Combo mounts with just four #14 diameter bolts. The included stainless steel backing plate doubles as an installation template. An installation video is at www.bit.ly/AcconCleatRodCombo. The 9814 Cleat/Rod Holder Combo from Accon Marine has an MSRP of $115.59.
