- Half the cost of a new Cam Cleat Review by Jim
Took my cam cleat off to repair the boat and the red plastic pieces were shot, all the little balls fell out. I ordered this kit to repair the cleat, aware of the fact that it only works on the later vintage of cleats.
It turns out my cleat was the early vintage and the inside diameter of the two shafts on the aluminum baseplate are not large enough to accept the mating shafts on the plastic cam base. I was able to enlarge the baseplate shafts by drilling them out using two different drills to accommodate the stepped diameter on the cam base. After that modification I was able to fit everything back together and it all works.
The repair went smoothly per the directions after enlarging the shaft inside diameters on the base plate.
