Post Looking or Fender Holders, PLEASE HELP

Does anyone know who makes the fender holders that you mount on the side of your boat. The holder is Round S.S. with a hole in the middle. Then you put an adapter on your fender line that fits into the hole? The fitting on the hull of the boat is flush munted.

Thumbs down

Have you ever used them before? I didn’t have good luck with them. While rafted up In rough water they had a tendency to pop out of the holder. They look nice but it’s more difficult to adjust the height than just tying off to the railing.

Eddie Marine also has them, I've had better luck dealing with them over Rex.

I bought new fender lines with big suction cups on the end of them. They work great to hold the fenders where there is no cleat to tie to. Picked them up cheap at West Marine and installed them on the fenders in minutes

Do not count on those suction cup fender holders. I have lost fenders while rafted up, and they to pull off when a heavy wake goes by. I would suggest doubling up on the suction cups on each fender. It really helps, but still no guarantee they will stay put. If I am leaving the boat for a while, I tie a line to them, and tie it off somewhere else on the boat, so even if they jump off, they are not lost.
