      Installed as main sheet swivel cleat on a 12.5 foot sailboat. Perfect size and function for a small boat.

        Comments about Cam Bases:

        Y-Flyer mainsheet cleat. Combined with 40mm Sheave Diameter Block, Single/Swivel. Block needed reaming of hole for attachment pin. Other Harken blocks may have been more compatible. Did not need included stand up spring.

        Works like a charm!

          Comments about Cam Bases:

          I installed these on my Int Tempest to replace the clam cleats. I sail alot singlehanded, and putting the jib sheet into the clam cleat was a "fire drill" every time I tacked. With the Harken 240's, I just flip the sheet up to release the lee cleat and tension the opposite sheet as the boat comes around. Simple and much easier and faster. I could have used the H238's instead, and that might have really been better, but I went for the H240's because of single handed the angles are quite different from when I have a crew.
