GLOVERSVILLE, NY – February 20, 2004 - For 2003-04, Taylor Made Products is introducing a new family of fender accessories designed to make it easier to deploy, adjust and remove boat fenders.


The new fender accessory products are designed to eliminate the need for tying and untying knots when putting out hanging fenders. They are offered in three different models: Quick Knot™, No Knot™ and Vertical Rail Hanger. They are all made of rugged molded marine-grade nylon.


All three types of fender accessories deploy quickly and easily. The fender rope is looped over the rail or cleat, then threaded through a nylon block, where gripper teeth hold it firmly in place. It’s easy to adjust fender height by pulling the line through the hanger.


The Quick Knot is designed for lines up to ¼ inch. The heavier-duty No Knot can work with larger fender lines. The Vertical Rail Hanger is designed to mount to vertical rails.
