Accon’s Stainless Hangers Keep Fenders In Place


Accon250Fastening fenders to the side of a boat can be tricky and time-consuming.  Accon Marine's 401-R Fender Hangers enable boat owners to easily place and remove fenders without repetitive tying and untying.

Users conveniently attach the fender to a loop on the hanger which snaps into a fixed base.  The unique quick release feature enables the loop to remain connected to the fender line when separated, eliminating the need to fasten and unfasten the fenders.

Constructed from marine-grade 316 stainless steel, they feature a low profile and sleek appearance.  They're available with 1/2" or 1" loops to fit most fender lines.

Incredibly easy to install, these fender hangers do not require any cut-outs.  They simply mount on the vessel's surface with two #10 screws.

We met with Neptunus Managing Director Jan Willem De Jong this past fall to take the new Neptunus 650F out in Lake Ontario.
