Just bought me an 02 mobius lsv and noticed it didnt have any cleats. has anyone heard of this or had to ever install cleats before. would love to go for the pop-up style.

Yup. Mine had none. It is an option and many, including me, have installed our own. Last year a guy had a stash of pull up cleats embossed with MOOMBA, but if those can't be found these work. My boat had reenforced areas above the rub rail where the cleats are installd. Look under your deck inside and you may see some rectangular areas where the reenforcement is if they did that back in 02.

Yea ill have to check under there for sure. Do you happen to know of anywhere else that may have them cheaper. Ive been shopping around and thats about the same price ive seen.

I don't have them. I wanted them but I got used to not having them.

Little cheaper here.

I have 2 of these (linked below) that are still in the box. I bought 4 initially, but decided I just wanted 2 in the back and that the rare times we do tie up I will use the tower legs in the front. If you're interested, I'll sell them both for $75 plus whatever shipping is.

They were pretty easy to install in the back - plenty of room to get underneath.

i had none on my 08 when i bought it. went to the local dealer to get some installed and they quoted me 400 for pop ups installed and i opted for the traditional style for like 100 bucks. i regret it everytime i look at my boat. do yourself a favor and go pop up

Yes, the pop-ups are definitely worthwhile in the stern. People are crawling all over there at various times and the rope sweeps across the area frequently. Now, if only the pylon were retractable as well...

^Second that.

Mine has popups in the rear, and are actually a little recessed into the glass so they are nice and flush - came that way. Fronts are standard or traditional and not near as pretty and occasionally can snag on something you don't want. Another vote for popups all the way around.

Absolutely go POP UPS. You'll regret it if you don't.
