Our Nauticat has several (6) large aluminum chocks, which are morticed into the perimeter teak toe rail. They were originally made by a Finland mfgr and available through Meredian, a chain & mail order, marine supply store in Finland, their answer to our West Marine.
In searching through the online catalog though, I couldn't find the exact item and don't have a close-up photo of a chock. This Photo of my starboard boarding gate shows the chock between two boarding ladder clips.
The chock has square ends allowing a flush installation to the teak . . . nice, unobtrusive design.

They are stainless I believe. They are for a wood toe rail. I wish I could draw a picture of them here so you could see what they look like. You need to carve out a spot for them in the toe rail but they fit flush so that they become part of the toe rail. I saw a picture of an integrated chock on the net( someone redoing their to rail) and it was not what I'm looking for.First they were bronze and they had a totally different shape.
Kimberlite- Do you have a picture of yours anywhere?

What do you mean by integrated? Is this an aluminum toe rail or a wooden one? Did you want just chocks, or did you need them to be cleats with chocks?

Integrated toe rail chocks
Does ANYONE know who makes integrated toe rail chocks.I have seen them but cannot find the manufacturer.They are rectangular from the side so that when you install them, the line of the toe rail is unchanged."line" as in sight not rope.
