Mini Cam Kit for Elliptical Surface
Mount a mini cam cleat, in any orientation, on almost any elliptical surface. Fits most elliptical surfaces: Hobie®, Nacra, Prindle masts and most others; Hobie and Prindle main beams, etc. You drill holes in the pad to suit your desired line/cleat orientation.
- On Masts: Mount halyard or downhaul cleat. Pad moves cleat out from mast for better line handling.
- On Front Main Beam: Mount barberhauler or jib traveler control cleats. H16 sailors note: Ronstan cam cleats are much stronger and more reliable than lance cleats for Hobie® 16 jib traveler control.
- On Front Main Beam: Mount roller furling line cleat.
