Our range of aluminium through deck bushes and threaded through deck bushes have been well received by the industry so we have decided to continue with the development. The logical product progression being, fixing tie on blocks to the deck or bulkhead. There are a number of companies producing products that provide this, so we decided to think a little more laterally and have come up with a range of Pad-Tii that have some additional design features.
A number of current products require the integral pad and associated tie on rope to be permanently bonded to a surface, which doesn’t readily allow replacement of worn rope. We have incorporated an ingenious removable attachment pin to allow the user to replace the tie on rope as it wears. Simply unscrew the upper insert, push down on the tie on rope and remove the stainless steel crossbar. Install your replacement tie on rope by pushing through the hole in the centre of the upper insert, slide the pin into place retaining the tie on rope and screw the upper insert back into the deck.
The lower insert is enclosed ensuring the design is watertight and the two parts have flats so they can be tightened and undone with simple tools.
