I used them with a teardrop cleat and they work fine. Thanks for your help.

These are actually recessed into the rail. unless you have a simular rail on your boat there going to be usless to you.

Chocks are not the same as cleats. You do not tie off a line to a chock. The chocks are guides for the dock lines to go through to the cleat to prevent chafing.

If you can offer any help, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Bryan
