Product Overview

Harken® ball bearing cam cleats hold lines securely and release instantly for easy, precise trimming. Multiple rows of high-load ball bearings reduce friction so cams open easily for snap-down, rather than draw-through cleating. The cam horns and smooth V-shape guide the line for easy entry. This allows precise sail control without having to readjust the cleated line.

Aluminum Cam-Matics® are hardcoat-anodized for high-load, high-wear, continuous adjustment applications. The PTFE surface of the aluminum Cam-Matic® improves the cleat’s fast line engagement.
