Good idea, though...thanks!
The Schaefer "Clear-Step" pictured above retails from Defender at US$40/each.
The new Harken OSLBA units I installed retail from Defender at US$28/each. Price-wise, it is a no-brainer.
Garhauer has something similar that lists for about US$32/each. However, I examined their offering at the boat show and it was very heavy and klunky by comparison -- not a very elegant solution. You can see it here:
Garhauer SB-3 Stanchion Block
