Boat Launch Videos

Below we have put together a few different boat launch videos for 2 scenarios. First you will notice a boat launch scenario of a one person launch. The second is with a 2 person scenario. These example boat launch videos are provided to show how easy it is to unload a boat using the automatic boat latch. This particular boat trailer setup in the video is an Alumacraft boat with a Shoreland’r trailer. The boat latch works on many most V hull boats. The boat latch is NOT LIMITED to this model.

Single Person Boat Launch Video

In this short boat launch video you will see how easy 1 person can unload a boat using the Drotto automatic boat latch.
In this boat launch video the chains and straps on the boat have been unhooked in the pre-launch area. The Drotto secures the boat to the trailer without the straps and chains hooked up. You may then back down into the water. Once you are ready to launch the boat, just pull the lever and away you go.

2 Person Boat Launch Video

This boat launch video shows you how easy 2 people can unload a boat using the automatic boat latch.
This 2 man boat launch video shows how fast and easy you can launch a boat with 2 people.  With a roller trailer (or bunk trailer) you can unhook the chains and straps on the boat in the dry section of the ramp. The boat latch secures the boat to the trailer without the need of straps and chains to hold the boat. Once the driver of the vehicle has backed the boat far enough into the water, The person can release the latch from inside the boat by pulling the rope.

Boat Launch Video Recap

We hope that these boat launch videos help give you a better understanding of how easy it is to launch a boat when using our boat latch. We some day hope to help many fishermen and boating enthusiasts all over the world. Whether it’s boating alone, boating with a novice, boating with a youngster or just plain speeding up the process of launching a boat we hope our Drotto boat latch helps.

In these boat launch videos you will also notice NO WET FEET. Having to step into the water trying to launch your boat before even getting out into the lake is a pain. Using our boat latch you will rarely have to get into the water to launch your boat again. Boating is supposed to be an enjoyable experience, KEEP YOUR FEET DRY.

Another large benefit of the boat latch is NO RESETTING of the product! That’s right. Once you launch your boat you can bring it straight back in without messing with the latch. It’s ready to grab your boat again without resetting anything!

Make sure your next boat outing is a great one! Order the Drotto boat latch on Boat2Trailer.com today!

This is the BEST addition to my Ranger Trailer bar none! Given I am turning 76 this year, I don't have the energy I use to have and launching and loading my boat had gotten to be somewhat of a chore. I have a 20ft Ranger loaded to the "gills" which means it is a handful at the ramp. The Boat2Trailer Boat Latch has really been a time savor, as well as, spared me from expending a great deal of energy (best part of the equation). It only took me 45 minutes to Install the item. The video on YouTube was a big help.....

Works like a dream. As others have mentioned it pulled my Competitor 165 forward a couple of inches but I loosened the winch stand and slid it forward to compensate.

This a 5 star just on customer service alone. I placed my order late on Saturday afternoon and had a question afterwards. I sent email later that night and had a positive response back on Sunday morning!! WHO DOES THAT?!? I'm counting on the latch working just as well !

I fish with my 9 year old son 99% of the time so it is just me launching and loading. However, I had rotator cuff surgery on my dominant arm in March. Trying to reach over and hook up is extremely painful for me and trying to do it standing to the trailer is impossible with my range of motion. I showed this to my wife and she ordered it for Father's Day.

I took the boat out yesterday and installed it. I have a Phoenix Bass Boat with a 4" roller so we had to go with the 3 3/4" version and I added washers to each side so it was centered. The install went smooth and took about 10 minutes. Just as side note if you have a 4" roller you will likely need to used the same bolt that is currently on your trailer's roller. I caught this before the install so it was not a big deal. I got the master lock so the bolt that came with it would not work for sure.

Yesterday was a windy day once we got back from fishing we had some water skiers and strong wind making for challenging loading conditions and this think worked like a champ. It will cut minutes off of launching and loading you boat.

I absolutely love this device. I have had both knees replaced and it was very hard for me to go fishing by myself but this device has given me the freedom I was looking for. I have friends that are talking about getting this device. Thank you Boat2Trailer Drotto Boat Latch.

Only thing that could make it easier to loadout would be a chauffeur! Makes loading out easy peasy.

The latch works as advertised. Would have given it five stars but it set my boat back about 4 inches on the trailer (Lund boat & shorelander trailer). I will have to figure out a bracket for rear tie downs. I have a swing away hitch so can not move my front post foreward. Perhaps Drotto could figure that out & and market them.
