Pop up cleats

I purchased my boat used last year, a 2002 X-9 and didn't notice at the time that it doesn't have any cleats to tie the boat off. Does anybody have any experience with the different brands and sizes of pop up cleats that are available? My dealer just kind of laughed when I asked him about pricing Mastercraft cleats.

I saw the pop-ups on Mag's boat. Nice amenity indeed.

I have no further input to this thread...

Do a search on cleats on this site...I know there are specifics about the Mastercraft logo cleats....might also look in the MC Online Proshop. This has been a past topic. I've thought about mounting them, but don't know where to put them. Still waiting to see others that have them and where they are located on their boats.

I bought a 2000 X-star this summer and kinda ran into the same problem. The dealer wouldnt even give me a price other than the cleets themselves.I ended up getting a "Bungie" rope that I tied off to the front of my tower and put the loop around the ski pole.I havent had any problems with comming untied or not being able to tie up anywhere. I've got enough length to slip thru dock cleats easily, but I do hang bumpers on the side.

I know the new nautiques have the cleats that fall flush when not needed. The local CC dealer pointed them out. I guess I would use them if they came on the boat, but I would NOT install them aftermarket. I would be afraid that if they ever broke, they might be hard to find replacements that would fit the same holes. I have always used the ski pylon to tie my boat up on my Prostar 190, and use the tower and rear pylon to tie up my X-2.

I had the dealer add 4 popup cleats on my '01 PS190 last spring.
(4) 4" Etched MasterCraft @ 56.95 ea
2 hrs install @ $85.00
Total = $397.80 = not cheap
I have tied MCs using the pylon for many years, but where i am at now, the current can be strong. 1 point in the center of the boat wasnt enough. (the boat wants to turn and the line works the windshield frame or seat.)

they didnt back the cleats like they said they were going to do, which i just noticed after winterizing. make sure they do! i may try to get them to fix that this spring.
(you can see them in the pic)

POP up cleat install and price

Some MC products come standard w/ pop up cleats. They (the cleats) are a nice addition to any boat. The RETAIL as a factory installed product at $400. With labor and the parts figure the cost would be very close to the same from a dealer.
