You can't just replace the cleat jaws from the stock traveller with the Harken cleat - you have to replace the entire swivel assembly since they use fundamentally different mounts.

Sorry.

Actually I found a way you can replace the stock cleats with the harken cleats,without replaing the whole swivel.It took a little improvising but it turned out great.Anyone else thinking of doing this just e-mail myself and I will outline how to do it
