Allen Cam Cleats
Available in either Alloy or Allenite* the jaw profile of Allen Cam Cleats optimises rope entry and exit for smooth cleating and un-cleating.
Double coil springs and ball bearing technology give consistently smooth cam action. The addition of the Mega-Pro Lead with optional wire reinforcement enhances cleating angles for superior performance and longevity.
Allen Cam Cleats benefit from over 60 years of meticulous research and development. The Allen Brothers, Tony and Glenn, were the inventors of the original aluminium cam cleat.
