fixing moulded cleat to tubes...help

hello there, i was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible, and how to fix a moulded cleat bought separate from the boat. its an ocean pro 6.3 mtre, but the cleat was an extra 130 pounds so i opted out! i then found i could buy one for about 10-15 pounds, how would i go about safely fitting this to the tubes, and are there any worries with this? why would a moulded cleat from humber cost so much? seems silly when its just moulded plastic! any help would be appreciated! jonathan

k thanks

ta for replies, i will contact those tube makers, i just cant see why humber would charge such a large amount for moulded plastic cleat? i know demand has an impact on cost but surely not that much, as an alternative i may get a post instead which can be screwed onto the bow locker with self tapping screws...

Errm, Anything attached with self tappers is not going to be very strong to tie too is it? You really need to bolt through with a wooden pad on the other side to spread the load.
