Replacement Hardware

I am trying to replace two cleats that are connected to the mast and that I am currently using to tie off the main and jib halyards. My boat is a 1963 O'Day Rhodes 19 (couldn't be happier with the boat). The cleats are very small (about 2.5"s) and I can't find anything online smaller than 4".

Does anyone have any suggestions? I live in St. Louis and the only chain marine parts store around is West Marine.

Thanks for any help.

Re: Replacement Hardware

West Marine has 2" and 3" nylon cleats in their own brand as low as $1.99, and Forespar brand Marelon in 3" for $1.49. These are plenty strong, certainly not expensive, and easy to order online. They are not jam cleats like the ones you show, but that shouldn't be a problem.

Replacement Hardware

Have you thought of replacing them with cam cleats? If you have halyard winches you could just put an extra wrap and the load would not be that much on the cams.
