Accon Marine lifting eyes are available in both round and oval models and can safely lift up to 4,000lb in the direction of the axis of the threaded rod shank. Fabricated from a combination of 316 and 304 stainless steel, they require less clearance under deck than conventional lifting cleats, and are fastened with four #10 screws. The smaller, more-compact 201 model can be equipped with a drain or sealed watertight, while its hub pivots two ways to overcome any slight misalignment at installation. The standard rod length is 12in, but owners can customize rod lengths when ordering.


From $255. Accon Marine
