Tracker Automatic Boat Latch
Tracker automatic boat latch. The Ramp N Clamp Model T and Sport Model are designed specifically to match the eye of your boat. The Model T is for a thick aluminum eye on the newer tracker boats. The Sport Model is designed for earlier Trackers that came with a standard U bolt for an eye. The Model T comes with a stainless steel aluminum eye adaptor. This adaptor is ESSENTIAL in saving your aluminum eye. A steel clamp grabbing directly onto aluminum will cause wear and tear on your aluminum tracker eye. The adaptor slides directly over the thick aluminum eye. It does not require any drilling.
Look closely at the eye that is on your Tracker boat. It will either have a standard U bolt or the thick aluminum eye. On the Model T Tracker automatic boat latch, there is a gap in the polyurethane specifically for this stainless steel aluminum eye adaptor. The Sport Model has a gap for a standard U bolt. It is very important the opening or gap on the polyurethane matches the mount of the eye. Having a tight fit on the eye ensures less wear on your fiberglass or aluminum boat and your eye. If you have a different setup of your eye, please visit the MODELS page to find the correct model.
The Tracker automatic boat latch by Ramp N Clamp. The Boat2Trailer Sport Model and the Model T both have a protective cover made up of an upgraded Stoltz Polyurethane. This Stoltz Poly is to help prevent damage to your Tracker boat. Stoltz has been known around the world for its superior super roller material. Ramp N Clamp has 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 Tracker automatic boat latch by Ramp N Clamp. The Boat2Trailer Model T and the Sport Model latches are constructed of stainless steel to prevent corrosion and help prevent rusting of the clamp that you install on your trailer.
- One of 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 low profile mounting bracket. It is important to keep your Tracker boat in the same position on the trailer after installing the clamp. Having a sleek 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 Tracker 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 helps keep your boat in the position it was meant to be on the trailer without any additional brackets.

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.

Tracker Automatic Boat Latch – Prevent wear and tear on your eye
Tracker automatic boat latch. The Boat2Trailer Latch is engineered to prevent steel on steel wear and tear of the bow eye of your Tracker boat. Or Aluminum on steel if you have an aluminum eye. The Boat2Trailer clamp is designed to travel freely beyond the polyurethane to eliminate direct steel on steel pressure on your eye. When you tighten the strap on your trailer, the eye will snug up against the Stoltz Polyurethane not the stainless steel clamp. This is extremely important when traveling. It prevents any future issues you may have of steel on steel or aluminum on steel wear on your eye.
Tracker Automatic Boat Latch – Prevent steel on steel wear and tear – Smooth rotation
The Ramp N Clamp Sport Model and the Model T are engineered to prevent steel on steel wear and tear of your winch stand mounting bracket and the Boat2Trailer Latch. Ramp N Clamp engineered and added a nylon washer to the mounting bracket of the Sport Model and the Model T clamp. This prevents wear and tear and also give a smooth rotation when the clamp has to pivot. We understand all landings and lakes are different. They all have different angles and pitches. 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.
