On the slipping hitch I put the loose tail through the loop so there is now way the knot can be accidentally dislodged but everything is still able to be speedily removed

if you think thats how to use a cleat ,,, keep at it , on toy Tupperware boats it may be fun , in the real world its about as funny as the coils that people make out of rope on the pontoons.

A hitch and a knot are not interchangeable names.

interesting demonstration. slip clove for fender agteed. the use of your cleat is comical. A cleat of any sort is full wrap with 1 complete figure 8, this is proper and will hold. If you are showing a figure 8 with 2nd wrap wrapped under in line with flow of line. NOT wrapped back on top creaking a " hurricane hitch" which when pulled tight may require an axe to get loose. If you need more secured cleating. Wrap line around cleat 2-3 times than a standard figure 8. Dont believe me try, this method is not only safe, able to get undone quickly but will hold tonnage.

Nice demonstration. A question, captain. Why do I never see a stopper knot tied in the end the fender rope? A stopper knot - like a barrel knot, or fig-8, or stevedore, etc. - will stop the fender from clumsily slipping thru one's hand/hands due to a momentary lapse of concentration ... caused by any number of distractions ... and ending up in the drink???? A stopper doesn't really get in the way of tying a clove, standard or slipped. Seems like a good idea to me, but I just don't see it done.

I also have a knot/hitch very, very similar to the clove that you may wish to explore - a Spar Hitch. It's actually more secure than a clove, just as easy to tie, and is perfect for hanging objects like a fender ... yet it's infrequently used. Here's another captain's article about the Spar Hitch - always fun to learn/try/compare new techniques ...
