Ranger Automatic Boat Latch
Ranger automatic boat latch. The Ramp N Clamp Model T and the Sport Model are both designed specifically in regards to the eye of the boat or how it is mounted. Since Ranger boats offers boats with different eyes on them, we offer separate models for each eye.
Look closely at the eye on your Ranger Boat. The NEW ALUMINUM Ranger boats have a thick aluminum eye on the bow. This boat requires the Model T. Older Ranger Aluminum boats have a standard U bolt and all fiberglass Ranger boats have a standard u bolt mounted directly to the bow as well. Older Rangers and all fiberglass Ranger require the SPORT MODEL.
Model T – Since your Ranger boat comes with a thick aluminum eye, we require the stainless steel aluminum eye adaptor. This adaptor protects your aluminum eye. On the Ranger automatic boat latch Model T, there is a gap in the polyurethane specifically for the stainless steel aluminum eye adaptor to travel through.
Sport Model – is designed for a fiberglass Ranger boat and an aluminum Ranger boat that have a standard u bolt directly mounted to the fiberglass or aluminum. Essentially It is very important the gap on the polyurethane matches the mount of the eye. Having a tight fit on this bracket or eye ensures less wear on your boat and your eye.
Stoltz Polyurethane Protector
The Ranger automatic boat latch designed by Ramp N Clamp. The Boat2Trailer Latch has a protective cover made up of an upgraded Stoltz Polyurethane. The Stoltz Poly is to prevent damage to your aluminum Ranger and fiberglass Ranger boat. Stoltz has been known around the world for its superior super roller material. We have upgraded that material to an even stronger, more resistant protector. Here are key notes to consider about Stoltz Poly.
- Abrasion resistance
- Non-staining, known for it’s highest standard of less marking
- Won’t split or crack, even in extreme cold
- Longer, consistent performance
- Will not flat spot after months of storage
The Ranger automatic boat latch by Ramp N Clamp. The Ramp N Clamp is constructed of stainless steel. This is to prevent corrosion and help prevent rusting of the clamp.
- The best and most well-known characteristics of stainless steel, is that it is extremely corrosion resistant. Stainless steel is know for its durability in salt climates and salt water conditions.
- Stainless steel holds up VERY well in most all climate conditions.
- It is an extremely tough and highly durable material with high impact resistance.
- You will NOT be disappointed in the long lasting durability of the clamp.
Low Profile Design
The Ramp N Clamp was designed and engineered to have a very low profile mounting bracket. This is why there is less steel in the build of the clamp. It is important to keep your Ranger boat in the same position on the trailer after installing the clamp. Having a low profile mounting bracket puts the clamp in a very similar position the roller was. Our clamp does NOT need any additional mounting bracket to “reset” the position of the Ranger boat. The low profile design helps prevent you from having to adjust the winch stand much to compensate any offset. If you have a welded trailer winch stand, this is incredibly important. The Boat2Trailer Latch by Ramp N Clamp helps keep your Ranger boat in the position it was meant to be on the trailer without any additional brackets.
Ranger Automatic Boat Latch Handle Options
Long Handle – Very commonly used on roller trailers – Automatically resets after loading and unloading – Made of Aluminum to help prevent corrosion and rust – Easy to reach from inside the boat for launching – Easy to add a rope to launch from inside the boat – MUST float the boat then pull handle to release the boat. (short handle has an option to manually release at any time) – LONG HANDLE MODEL CAN NOT BE CONVERTED TO SHORT HANDLE MODEL
AUTOMATIC Short Handle
Very commonly used on bunk trailers – Automatically resets after loading and unloading – Made of Stainless Steel to help prevent corrosion and rust – Low profile for less bulk – Very little force to open – MUST float the boat then pull handle to release the boat. (Manual short handle can manually release at anytime) – SHORT HANDLE MODEL CAN NOT BE CONVERTED TO LONG HANDLE MODEL
MANUAL Short Handle
Very commonly used on bunk trailers – Manually reset after loading and unloading – Made of Stainless Steel to help prevent corrosion and rust – Low profile for less bulk – Very little force to open – Can place handle in the up or “release position” to keep the clamp open for launching. You do not have to float the boat to release. If you prefer to unhook your strap and chain and release the clamp at the same time, you can with this option. You must manually place the handle in the down or “locking” position before loading the boat – SHORT HANDLE MODEL CAN NOT BE CONVERTED TO LONG HANDLE MODEL
Ranger Automatic Boat Latch – Prevent wear and tear on your boat’s eye
Ranger automatic boat latch. The Boat2Trailer Latch for a Ranger boat is engineered to prevent steel on steel wear and tear of the bow eye. The Sport Model and Model T are designed to travel freely beyond the polyurethane to eliminate direct steel on steel pressure on your eye. When you tighten your strap, the eye will snug up against the Stoltz Polyurethane not the stainless steel clamp. This is extremely important when traveling. This prevents any future issues you may have of steel on steel wear on the eye of your Ranger boat.
Ranger Automatic Boat Latch – Prevent steel on steel wear and tear – Smooth rotation
The Boat2Trailer Latch is engineered to prevent steel on steel wear and tear of your winch stand mounting bracket and the clamp. There is a nylon washer added to the mounting bracket of the clamp to prevent wear and tear on your Lund Trailer and clamp. This also gives a smooth rotation when the clamp has to pivot. Many landings have different angles and pitches to them. On steeper landings the clamp has to pivot more when the boat comes into it. This pivoting can cause major scratches and damage to the steel on both the clamp and winch post. Having this nylon washer helps prevent that damage.
