I bought some new cam cleats for my main and genoa only to discover that they have a shorter footprint than the original 201 cam cleats. They would need new holes much too close to the originals for comfort. Does anyone know where to get the old pattern fittings ? I do not really want to change to clutches as I find the originals if sharp work well and I like the low profile aspect of them.

Selden 201 cam cleats are available here, www.sailboats.co.uk/Cat~Selden_Cam_Cleats_5422.html
Not sure if the dimensions are the same ,but worth checking. Looks like 27mm C--C.

Force 4 sell the following which I used as a direct replacement for the genoa sheet cleats on Klipspringer.
As for the main the cleat is normally an integral part of the block as in
www.force4.co.uk/1621/Barton-Fiddle-Swivel----Beck---Cam-... so I am not sure what you are asking for.
Just reread your original post and noted you said halliard not sheets. the halliards where originally fixed to the mast with cleats such as

Hope this helps.

Thanks guys for the guide. I am hoping the Force 4 CL 201 is the original yard fitting to fit the stainless steel backing pads. I am just fitting a new DSC radio and wanted to change these cleats while the roof lining is down.
