Can you please tag each component in a comment box? There's a lot of slang descriptions in here. I don't have any experience with these, and I'd like to know what each thing is. Thanks.

Be sure to use the metal clamcleats. I made a bar with a plastic cleat and after being worked over by a sandy spectra line for a few months it won't hold anymore.

what exactly did you make here? It looks like you took a bunch of kitboarding gear and assembled it?
Most people don't have random kite gear lying around.

How did you mount the clam cleat to the rope? thats just a regular cleat, not a rope mountable one? What did you use to mount the cleat, thanks.

1/4" stainless bolt (with the countersunk head inside the cleat) then goes through the rope and washer (used a toothed one that comes with most straps/bindings) and a nut. Let me know if thats not clear and I'll take a pic
