Pop up cleats used for dock fenders...

In a quest to make launching and capturing easier, I was considering installing some pop-up cleats. I have seen the standard locations and got to wondering. How easy is it to use these popups cleats with the ever popular taylor made low freeboard dock fenders? Has anyone been able to get the fenders to sit in the right location to protect the boat using just a simple loop over the pop up cleat? Any pics?

Those do look nice. I had to look at the pdf file to see how they work. Any idea of suppliers or cost?

Cobalt

I've seen them on Cobalt boats and thought they are very nice and would like have some myself. Let me know if you find a price on them.
