Harken’s Cam-Matic cleat has multiple rows of high-load ball bearings to reduce friction so that 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.
The Teflon® 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. Rounded teeth hold securely by squeezing rather than cutting into line to reduce wear. Aluminum Cam-Matics® are Hardkote-anodized for high-load, high-wear, continuous adjustment applications. Ball bearings are UV-stabilized with carbon-black additive for maximum protection.
