Our 8 Inch Solar Cleat Lites, sold in cost-saving sets, not only make it easier for you to secure your boat at night, they help eliminate one of the most common tripping hazards. With an IP 65 waterproof rated, they are appropriate for docks in either fresh or salt water environments.
Easy to install, they provide reliable ambient light for up to 18 hours on a single day's solar charge.
The cleats are constructed of fiber-reinforced nylon for strength and are easy way to replace most existing 8-inch cleats with a safer alternative.
With the same bolt pattern (2.25-inches) as the most commonly sold 8-inch nylon cleats, they are easy to mount, usually with your existing hardware.
They can work be installed on most docks, including EZ-Dock and Wave Armor floating docks, to add new cleats or replace existing nylon cleats that have standard bolt spacing (2.25 inches).
Two quality Super Bright LEDs and a powerful solar panel make these lights turn on at dusk and stay bright through dawn most times of the year. The solar energy is stored in a rechargeable battery (included, and lasts about 19-24 months before needing replacement) that powers the lights each night. (Performance will vary depending on season conditions as well as sun/cloudy cover.)
No wires, no electricians, no building permits, no disruptions during or after installation, and no utility bills! These literally install in minutes with screws and/or bolts. Hardware is not included as effective installation means "one size" hardware may not be appropriate for all installations.
Thickness and composition of the dock, as well as the size vessel to be moored, should be considered when selecting screws and/or bolts. To secure larger vessels, cleats should be bolted underneath the dock.
