The new NOMEN cleat always remains closed, whether it is belayed or not.
NOMEN Cleat 2
During belaying the moving ends give way readily. The line can simply be wound around the rigid part of the cleat without having to activate any mechanism. The round rotary end pieces keep the cleat firmly closed so no lines can get caught and nobody can be injured.

- 2013 the CLIP-cleat won the DAME Award (category deck equipment, sails and rigging) DAME Award
