This accessory expands the capability of conventional Clamcleat® rope cleats (as used on the Weta. The Keeper has been designed to overcome the problem of lines being cleated accidentally as well as improving performance by holding lightly-loaded lines in the jaws of a cleat when mounted upside down.
Keepers keep a rope in the cleat, or keep it out of the cleat.
Made from Acetal, the keeper fits under the cleat and claims to make cleating a line easier and there is a satisfying and positive click as the line is released or cleated. . These benefits mean that Clamcleat® rope cleats can now be used on control lines that are adjusted frequently.
When a halyard or control line is released from a cleat fitted with a Keeper, the Keeper will stop it falling back into the cleat and re-cleating, for example when dropping a spinnaker during a race or the mainsail/jib when unrigging ashore.
There are a number of sizes available:
The CL814 for larger clam cleats, such as those on many Weta Masts: http://tinyurl.com/hyyal5u
The CL815 for smaller clam cleats, such as the downhaul and tramp tensioners: http://tinyurl.com/zqgkdny
