Boat Chandlery Question... Answered
I've had a senior moment. You know those widgets that they use on boats to fasten ropes? What are they called?
Two ridged, rotating sections, lay the rope between them, and tension makes them turn in and lock the rope in place, pull the other way and they open to release it.
What are they called? I thought they were "cleats", but that turns out to be the roughly T-shaped fittings that you knot rope around.
