After seeing the previous arrangement up close, and realizing that it was held together with 2 screws with only 2 engaged threads, I was unhappy!

So I used the original base of the double-cleat, much beefier with a ball-bearing swivel base pressed into it, and did a second cobbling. This swivel did not come with a fairlead of any kind as you are supposed to purchase a double-ratcheting block for it. I had two swiveling fairleads with ss clamps meant for railings/dodger frames: I took them apart, purchased some u-channel aluminum, drilled some holes it it, voila! Mounted it all up, ran the double-mainsheets and it worked. So I set the 4 mounting screws into epoxy today. . .
