Quickline, an importer and distributor of marine gear and accessories, said German manufacturer Nomen Products selected the company as its exclusive U.S. and Canadian distributor.

California-based Quickline will sell and support the Nomen line, including the Clip-Cleat, chocks and the Nomen folding mooring cleat.

“Our extensive reach in the U.S. and Canadian marine markets makes us an ideal partner to sell and support Nomen’s award-winning Clip-Cleat line,” Quickline president Randy Boelsems said in a statement. “The Clip-Cleat is a game-changer in mooring cleat design and the perfect complement to our premier anchoring products. Quickline takes pride in offering best-in-class marine accessories that are distinctive, highly functional and stylish. We are confident Nomen Products will meet and exceed our discerning customers’ standards.”

“We are excited to be represented by Quickline,” Nomen Products designer Axel Hoppenhaus. “Our mooring solutions are a natural fit for Quickline’s high-quality marine offerings. They not only share our commitment to support the safety and security of vessels, but match our values and dedication to unparalleled customer service.”

Nomen’s CLIP-Cleat is a 2013 DAME Award winner. Featuring spring-loaded, rotating ends that present a smooth profile, the Clip-Cleat has an innovative and functional open and closed design that eliminates the potential for catching loose lines or causing injuries.

The Nomen folding mooring cleat provides the benefits of flush and rigid cleats with a high-quality aesthetic perfection. Awarded the Federal Product Design Award, Germany’s highest design prize, the cleat ensures that loose lines cannot get caught during maneuvering, reduces the risk of injury and is easy to fit to the deck.
