Using computer-aided-design and 3D printing we've developed a new side-tube mount.
We make it using a polyester plastic (PET) so it is very rigid and doesn't move at all once the screws are tightened down.
Another big improvement are captive nuts on the lower mount. Installation is a breeze with just a screwdriver.
The cleat is also moved up a bit to give a better angle into the cleat for the line coming from the front of the cart.
The mount comes with two 8-32 nylon lock-nuts in the lower mount and your choice of
2 1/4" 8-32 machine screws to mount a Viadna micro-cleat, or
2 1/2" screws (flat or pan head) you can trim for your favorite 27mm cleat.
The price is $30.
US shipping is usually $5.00
A Viadana carbon-fiber ball-bearing cam-cleat and fairlead (as shown in the top photo) are an additional $15.00.
