There isa made-in-Italy system with which to moor effortlessly. No longer will you need the people in the bow to break their backs with the transom, and you won’t even have to block the top with your foot before you give time in the cleat. How is this possible? With Joy Cleat, the motorized cleat designed by the Milan-based company Bonomi.

joy cleatThe cleat has two rotating pivots, one of which (the one furthest aft if the system is bow-mounted, and vice versa) is electrically operated by a foot switch installed on deck and has selftailing cheeks capable of locking the line (the barbotin can accommodate lines from 20 to 32 mm in diameter).

Operation is simple and is illustrated in the sequence below.

MOORING IS EASY WITH JOY CLEAT

1. First, place the mooring line or trapeze in the rope feedthrough, without making excessive efforts to put it under tension.

2. Verify the direction of rotation of the pin with self tail, which will indicate the position of line entry.

3. At this point place the mooring line sideways to Joy.

4. Now give turn around the two rotating pins.

5. Keep the return line taut, but again without straining.

6. Now all you have to do is to operate the control button with your foot while keeping the return line taut at all times.

7. Now execute the classic Rooster knot to secure the line to Joy.

8. Finally Date once around the cleat knot for safety. Mooring accomplished!

The gear motor installed below deck obviously does not allow reverse movement of the pin, so the line is kept taut and locked without any additional action. Convenient, isn’t it?
