Thumbs up Glow in the dark cleats

I thought these were an interesting concept. I can't tell you how many times I've tripped over dock cleats in the dark. Could probably save quite a few stubbed toes!

e-Bay item # 300213417527



I see they have them in 7", 10" & 12" also.

Do they come in red also???????????????? Items glowing green all around the boat could cause some confusion.

Those are cool, but how about something that glows in the daytime, that is usually when I stub my toes.....

I have to get me a pair of those so I can leave them below and stub my toe while walking on the deck in my bare feet

Might be a bit hard to swim with, and hell going through airports.
