On the brass closed base cleats, 4" model 1)What is the clearance from the underside at the tip to the mounting suface?2)What is the height from the mounting surface to the top?Tks Andre
3/4 " from the underside at the tip to the mounting surface 1" from the mounting surface to the top
What are the dimensions of the base?
There are hanging in a vacation home and I don't have access to them to take dimensions. From memory they are about 1.5-2" at the base.
On the cleats we purchased, the base is 2" top to bottom and 3/4" wide, the screw holes are 15/16ths on center.
Sorry, these were for a customer and have long since left my shop.
I am interested in this model of cleat. I am looking for a cleat that has mounting holes 1 1/4 center to center. Can anyone tell me which size that might work? I am thinking 4 inch. Thanks.
Unfortunately I mounted the cleats to a home made project...I don't have any left to measure. I used them on a 12' canoe, bow and stern, they also double as handles for transport to the water.sorry!
I purchased the three inch cleat, and have since given the boat to my son in law, so I can not tel you the measurement
I want the 3 in. cleats. Which fastener should I use?
I used the "3" cleats on an 8' dingy. I think the 4" would be the smallest to use on any boat. jim
Hi Buck,It really depends on where you are attaching the cleat. In my case I was going through a 1/8th plywood top and placed blocks below that to make up about 3" total depth.(a Home made canoe). If you are using it on a side rail or a thick solid spot on the boat.....I would think 1.5 " (or more) of fastener below the bottom of cleat should do it. If your situation is fiberglass or other composit material I can help you there too.
It depends on your application. Mine was purely cosmetic. If yours is functional, it needs to go thru the substrate and into the framework.
Do these cleats need to be polished to keep their shine? If they tarnish, what color/texture does the tarnish take on? Many thanks.
George E These cleats do not tarnish. A soft cloth once in a while is all you will need.jim walther
I am using them at my pool for towel hangars and they look fabulous.

it works and looks good.
use them to hook the mainsheet aft on a spritsail rigged skiff.I was disappointed to learn that a third afterthought would cost$10 to ship.Went online and got the third matching one less and free shipping.A rep stated in an email that Jamestown has lower rates for small items if you call.Too late and not a forthright practice.
I bought these brass cleats for another use (pull knobs) for a custom-built wood aquarium stand, and hood. I wanted something nautical, but couldn't find anything conventional that I liked. These are perfect; looks great, and strong enough to support the weight of the hood.
beautiful piece! Looks great on project.
I used the 9" bronze cleat for a flagpole cleat. It looks beautiful. I'll be purchasing more in the future , including some smaller cleats for smaller flagpoles.
I would buy again, and highly recommend.
Excellent material, workmanship, and appearance.
Exceptionally Well-Crafted Product
Used the brass sea-dogs to give a very finished look to a handmade wooden tray filled with wine corks that had been set in place with resin. Adds a great way to carry the tray!
Very Elegant Looking Product.
I used this product on something entirely different project. Wanted to give my self designed high tech media cabinet,which will be in a room which consists many authentic real brass nautical instruments. So these Brass cleats give a very elegant look, so far I have bought twelve 3 inch cleats and 4 large five inch cleats. Once the room is finished. My wife wants custom end tables with doors meaning more brass cleats as door handles. Wish Jamestown carried more nautical items. So I can come up with more ideas.

Add a touch of class
We used these to tie back the cords on our blinds. They are much more attractive than others we have seen. They also match our door hardware.
