I am the former US distributor of Pile Ring Mooring System. Starting in October 2018, the inventor/manufacturer will be taking over all US operations himself. Since I will be stepping away to pursue my other business, I would like to sell of as much of my remaining stock as possible. To enable that, I am discounting the Pile Ring PR400 from its old retail price of $250/ea to a new price of $175/ea + shipping (about $18/unit).
For any existing customers, marina/commercial customers, or for any orders of >12 units, I will offer a price of $165/ea + shipping. This sale will only last through September, or perhaps sooner depending on how fast I sell out my stock.
**This deal will only be available here via this web shop, so contact me direct. Just to be clear – you will NOT receive a discount price on our standard web shop if you link through there instead.**

About Pile Ring
Pile Ring is a new and innovative solution to one of boating’s age-old nuisances – that is securing a boat in a slip with a piling tie-off. While there have been other products aimed at solving this problem, Pile Ring is aimed at filling the gap in the middle of the product range; Pile Ring is a highly specced, long-life/semi permanent, industrial grade solution that goes far beyond an ‘accessory’ (such as Tide Minder) but is also far cheaper, far easier, and far more efficient than products on the other side of the scale such as Tide Slide (which at twice the price, still requires extensive drilling & installation). With zero installation required, the highest load ratings, longest life, longest warranty, and most cost effective price point, Pile Ring is quickly becoming the new ‘go-to’ solution for marinas, yacht clubs, and private docks around the world. In New Zealand, where Pile Ring was invented and still manufactured, you can find thousands of units in use in major marinas across the country. The concept took off with very minor marketing efforts, purely due to its functionality. Now, thousands Pile Rings can also be found in use in dozens marinas & yacht clubs across the US & Canada, including the MWR Navy Sailing Base at Norfolk VA, and in major corporate marina groups like Brewer Yacht Yards and Suntex marinas.
Features and Specs
-Load-cell tested and rated for 3 tons safe working load, which exceeds most dock lines and many pilings themselves (lever action eventually pulls the pile from the ground!!)
-Offered in either Orange or Black
-All units come with a 5 year warranty, with a practical life expectancy of 20+ years
-The 15.5 inch INSIDE diameter typically offer enough clearance to slip easily over all hardware previously installed into piling (cleats, chocks, fenders, etc)
-All units produced exclusively in New Zealand, where the inventor overseas manufacturing & ensures strict quality control and batch testing at the factory. We do NOT outsource manufacturing!
-Pile Ring meets or exceeds all ISO 9001 standards
-UV stable, non marking, non porous, roto-molded Polyethylene construction, cast and cooked in a one piece, all inclusive mold with no seams or joints which can leak or fail
-Filled with unsinkable closed cell foam
-Integrated 19mm, single-piece, single-weld 304 solid stainless steel rod
-Offers 4 strong, smooth mooring points, with enough clearance to accept lines up to 22mm
-Self adjusts mooring lines as it floats up and down with the tide – no slack needed in the lines, means boats hold exact positions relative to the dock slip, facilitating easier/safer boarding
-The smooth stainless steel hoop offers a chafe free and convenient tie-off point for ropes. No more ‘lassoing’ jagged wooden piles and destroying your dock lines
-Gently cleans and inhibits marine growth from pilings as it rubs up and down along the tidal range”-
-Acts as a non marking fender to prevent damage in the event that the hull contacts the piling during maneuvers
-Absolutely ZERO hardware or installation required – simply drop over the top of pilings
-As the Pile Ring takes the place of cleats, fenders, etc, no more installs of any kind are needed into treated wood
-Less drilling = longer piling lifespan. Coupled with reduced maintenance, you’ll see significant cost-savings benefits
-PR400 Fits 99% of all wooden pilings (most 8”-12”)
-The lever arm and therefore strain on the piling is substantially reduced by the Pile Ring, as the load will be centered down at the waterline rather than near the top of the pile
-So far, we have not had a single unit broken, returned, or warrantied. We also have a 100% reorder rate from marinas to whom we have sent samples
From Patrick Curry, Dockmaster of the US Navy MRW Sailing Center in Norfolk, VA:
“The Pile Ring is really a no-brainer solution for us. We get ease of use for our patrons, reduced occurrences of expensive docking mishaps, increased safety of lines, boats, and docks during spring tides and storm surges, and increased life of our pilings since we no longer need nor allow any hardware to be drilled into the wood.”
