Cam Cleats

Post by kevin carroll » Mon Jan 17, 2005 6:20 pm

Not a question, just an obseration. One of the 'springs' went out on my cam cleats. Upon inspection one of the small coiled springs broke in half. Before I spent my $30 on a new cam cleat at West Marine I asked one of the folks in the store if they sell the small springs. They told me NO and it would have to be replaced, imagine my surprise when I see hanging up a bunch of springs that are labled 'Replacement Springs for Cam Cleats' I ponied up my $1.89 and repaired it on the spot!!

I showed the sales guy who told me to buy a new one and he responded ' learn something every day'
