bumpers... they clip into the holes in the top deck to hold your bumpers on.

fender clips are the best ... get 10" diameter numbers with covers

Maybe a stupid question, but I've never bought these before. Do these come with ropes or do you just MacGyver your normal fender ropes at a desired length?

What's the benefit of these vs tying your bumper to the cleat?

You aren't tying your cleat up with fender rope, leave the rope and fender lock attached when not using for quicker on/off, they are typically higher and in better position for fenders vs the cleat.

As far as I know you don't just buy they parts pictured, you need holes drilled and lock receivers installed. You can DYI this but it's not as easy as just buying the locks if you boat doesn't have receiver hole.

Ok makes sense. I use these for docking they work really slick, hold very well, have held up for 2 years and free up clear space for the fender rope.
