pop up or pull up cleats?

Ok so I am looking to add some cleats to the boat this spring before it goes into the water, but am not sure what is the best option. After spending some time looking around (on here and around the web) I'm not sure what the best option for this is, pop up cleats or pull up cleats.
From what I can find, the pop up cleats use springs to either stay down or up, which I would think would keep them from rattling at all, but means that I would have to put a bigger hole in the boat to put them in. The other option, the pull up cleats, look like they just seem to slide up and down, which seems like they might rattle around.
So i guess I'm wondering what everyone's opinions are, and what they have on their boats. Oh and what does Mastercraft put on boats?

the two kinds I have seen are like these:
pop up: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...3AIT&viewitem=
pull up: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...3AIT&viewitem=

thanks for everyone's help in advance.

I just sold some pull up cleats on ebay that would have been era-correct for your boat. Call the dealer and see if you can get a set of these:

Those are exactly what I have on my boat. I did have the dealer install them because I could not bring myself to drill holes in my boat. They work great and look good and no, they do not rattle.

I put the pull up cleats on mine. I put them in myself. Easy job to do, and they work great.

so that part# 554006 still comes up on mymc. i'd really like to add cleats this year.

it says 4in slimline pull-up cleat on the description. is the 4in appropriate for my boat, i guess i always thought they were 6in stock. 4in seems pretty short.

so then is there no such thing as an OEM MC 4in slimline "POP-UP" cleat?

not a huge deal and maybe it's just symantecs, but i thought they did have one and i swear i saw more options when i searched there last night.

I know that they have both the 4" and the 6" pop up MC cleats. I put the 6" towards the stern of my boat and the 4" at the mid point. My reasoning was that I use the rear cleats and the bow hook for dock lines. The cleats at the midpoint only hold a bumper when it's not tied up in a slip.
