About The Cinch Cleat:
Advantages:
-----The Cinch Cleat is the only device that the user ties their knot first without tension in the line and then removes the slack after tying the knot.
No longer do you have to pull the line tight and try to tie a traditional knot while the line is under tension. When slack reoccurs in the line it is no
longer necessary to untie and retie the knot. Simply pull on the take-up line to remove slack that was created in the tension line.

-----
The Cinch Cleat is the only device on which you can tie a unidirectional cinch knot without having to thread the line.
This allows the user to have a long length of line and tie their knot or (knots) without threading any line through the cleat. If several cleats are used
with one line, each pair can share a common take-up line, which can be used as a take-up handle for easier slack removal. After they are done, they
still have a full length of uncut line ready for reuse at a later time. This single length of line can be wound up and stowed away from the cleats or any
other hardware to help prevent the all to common "tangled up mess".

-----
The Cinch Cleat can use many different line sizes and materials including bungee.
This allows the user to use whatever line may be handy at the time, or whatever material of line that may be best for a given application.

-----
The same Cinch Cleat idea can be easily incorporated into many different products.
Once a person learns how to tie the knot on an anchor point, they will be able to and may want to tie the same knot on their tent stakes, snap hooks,
eye-bolts, tarp clips, rubber straps, bed-rails, etc... Additionally, just as with the standard horned cleat, once the user learns how to tie the knot
correctly they will have a sense of pride and accomplishment. When their friends see them use this cleat they will also want to buy some and learn
this knot as well.

-----
If the user does not know how to tie a cinch knot, they can still use the device in the standard ways.
They can still thread a line and tie a traditional knot. They can still insert a hook from a strap or bungee, etc... By incorporating the Cinch Cleat into
their design, a manufacturer is not losing any features of their original product; instead they are giving the user of their product the ability to tie a
cinch knot. And because of its simple one piece design, in most cases it is very easy to incorporate the cinch cleat into the design of existing
products.
Remember:  When using a Cinch Cleat,  maintaining line tension is a cinch.

In the past when a person had to secure cargo or tighten a line, they would first thread a line through an opening and then pull the line tight only to
be daunted by the task of securing the line with some kind of knot while the line is under tension.  Today with the new-patented Cinch Cleat, The
user does not have to thread the line through an opening.  The user also does not have to secure the line after it has been tightened.  Instead, the
user ties his or her knot first and then removes the slack.

Most of the items that are shown within this site can still be used even if the person using the device has never tied a cinch knot.  The user can still
thread the line and tie a traditional knot.  They can still insert a kook from a strap or bungee cord.  In some cases they can use the tine as a simple
hook.  The major difference with the items shown within this site is that now the user is also able to tie a uni-directional or bi-directional cinch knot.  

Our intent is to license to companies that would manufacture and sell items that would use the cinch cleat and associated knot-tying methods.  
Please examine the products and video clip that are found on  this site.  If you think your company would like to make and or sell some of these
items, please contact us and we can discuss adding the cinch cleat to your product line.

The Cinch Cleat, is a new style cleat that enables the user to tie a unidirectional  cinch knot.  This knot affords the user the same advantage of the
rope ratchet or cam buckle in the sense that slack is easily removed from the tension line by simply pulling on the take-up line.  This cinch knot is tied
first, with out tension in the line, and then slack can be easily removed.  And because the line is not threaded through a central opening, it is possible
to use full lengths of line without having to cut the line to a predetermined length.   Because of its simple design, the cinch cleat may be easily
incorporated into the design of many  products.  Unlike other products, the cinch cleat is not dependent on a single size or length of line or strap.  
The cinch cleat will work successfully with a wide variety of line sizes and materials so the user is free to use whatever line may be handy at the time.  
In most cases, the user will not loose any features or abilities of the original product that the cinch cleat was designed into.  Instead, they will enjoy
the same product with the added benefit of now being able to tie a cinch knot.
