Locked and (Spring) Loaded
Camcleats can be awkward to release under load, which is worrying when theres a squall line bearing down on you. Spinlock claims its new PXR camcleat is the easiest cleat to release.
It features a three-stage adjustable spring; you preset lighter settings for lines that are constantly adjusted and use stronger settings for seldom-tuned lines like halyards. The PXR comes in two sizes; Spinlock also makes mounts and swivels for the PXR that enable it to be used in various deck, mast, and cockpit applications. From $41.50.
