Looking for Scotty-type mounts for inflatables - specifically a cleat


I'm looking to do some customization of my inflatable boat. This is the type of boat I have (mine is grey):

14' inflatable Kayak & inflatable Boat crossover - KaBoat SK430.

Anyway, I want an easy way to drop an anchor on either side of the boat with a minimum of fuss. Right now I'd have to tie off to one of the large d-rings on the side at either bow or stern. You can see those d-rings in the pictures. Anyway, I stumbled across this nifty item, but for the life of me I can't seem to find anything similar for sale in the US - this appears to be some manufacturer specific to the UK.


I found the Scotty mounting plate on NRS here:

Scotty Glue-On Mount Pad - 341 at NRSweb.com

But, I can't seem to find anything resembling that really slick rope cleat to go with the Scotty mounting plate. I even poked around on the Scotty site and couldn't seem to find anything, except for their one-handed anchor mount gizmo which is more complex than what I'm looking for. Anyone know if something like this exists here in the US? If not I guess I'll bite the bullet and just buy it off the UK website and pay the extra. Is there any site based here in the US who sells a plethora of glue-on mounts for customizing rafts? There is more that I want to do to customize this boat and a one-stop shop would be great for that. I use this boat mostly for photography so I'm looking to rig things to allow me to snug tripods down and even mount something like a Bimini frame to hang camouflage netting off of for concealment. Helpful suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

How about a carabiner to the d ring with a slip knot?

Well, that's one solution, however the large d-rings are located at the front and rear of the boat which makes them difficult to access. One of those rope cleat mounts would allow a much easier access to the anchor rope.
