            GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. - October 1, 2009  - Taylor Made Products introduces the latest addition to their full line of fender accessories.  The company announced it has signed an exclusive licensing agreement to carry the patented ReadyCleat® from DML Products, Inc.

            ReadyCleat® is a portable instant cleat that is used as an insert to the rod holder, when a fender is required for docking and no permanent cleat is available along the gunnel of a boat. ReadyCleat® is inserted into any standard size rod holder, up to 9.5 " in depth, providing an instant fender cleat ready for action.  The ReadyCleat® is made from glass fiber reinforced Lexan to withstand the harsh marine environment and manufactured in a one-piece construction with no breakable parts.

            " This is a natural fit for the Taylor Made Products fender accessory lineup," explained David Karpinski, vice president of sales and marketing. "Over the past few years, we have expanded our product offering by introducing unique specialty fenders and accessories for very specific boating applications.  This product perfectly addresses the needs of the boater who's cleats are positioned inconveniently for fenders, but have available rod holders every few feet."
