There's a couple of advantages: they make the fenders super easy to install and remove so even the young kids can help out when docking by putting the fenders out. Plus it keeps the pop up cleats available for mooring lines.
There are lots of options for fender cleats, but if I had to do it again I'd still pay the $$ for phender pro- they are really nice. They used to be available from MC as an option in 2013, but they seem to have disappeared in 2014. Not sure what happened, but you should still be able to order the non-MC branded ones from the manufacturer.
They are still an option.
