The following review was written by the editorial department of Chesapeake Bay Magazine.

New from Accon are two flush-mount, stainless steel tie-down plates for securing such loose gear as coolers, dinghies, duffels and dive gear. The tie-downs are available in large (3½" x 3½" x 11/14"; $41) and small (2" x 2" x 1"; $18) versions. The assembly consists of a main body and sealing cup. Installation is simple, requiring a single hole for the tie-down cup and four mounting screws. Accon Marine; 847-662-9070;
