Only time will tell as to how long it will last. I'm not depending on it to moor a boat in high winds or for extended periods of time. But as a simple cleat for use as a limited-time tie up, it is perfect. I like the 8-inch size--big enough for easy use and not so large as to be in the way. The black color is unobtrusive and blends in well with my dock. All in all, I'm very satisfied.
