Boat2Trailer Drotto Latch

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!

The DROTTO would not work on my boat which is Caroline Skiff 21' with the double bow. I talked to Rob at Boat2trailer.com and he said it would not work on my boat. I decided to lower my boat bow eye and it worked great. This Drotto is a game changer. I can now drive the boat up and listen for the click and step off the boat and hook up the safety chase and drive away to the staging area and finish. If this will fit your boat (or you have to modify it) I would highly recommend this product. I am 80 years old and launch and recover my boat alone very safely now.

Truly a game changer. On and off the trailer super quick. No more leaning over the boat to crank it up! I’ll never own a boat without a boat2trailer again!!

Boat latch seems to be well made. I had to adjust the winch tower to accomadate the latch and boat position on the bunks. Once that was accomplished this product is great for self loading. I used to climb a tailgate ladder then walk out on the tongue to latch my boat. With this latch I just drive on the trailer up to the latch until it clicks. Then I can pull the trailer out and finish securing the boat. Wish I had it 20 years ago!

Best thing I ever purchased. It works just like the add said it would. Easy off and easy on. Can load and unload by yourself which is important to me

Installed it this week and finally got to try it today. Works awesome. I usually have people with me to help so I placed the lever against my winch handle and turned it putting pressure on release handle. It let the boat slide off perfect while they held my lines. When I returned for the day I drove it on slowly and as soon as it hit the latch it locked it on. Very impressed so far. I have a SeaVee 260B. I was a little concerned being that all the videos showed lighter boats. Happy Customer.

One of the best additions to my boat. Installed in less than 20 minutes. Time will be the true test. So far so good. Works great. Bit of a learning curve on trailer depth.

I have only used it once but I loaded up and she snapped right in place and then away we went. No more cranking that heavy boat up.

I bought this last year and have loaded and unloaded my boat maybe 50 times since installing it. I am happy with it overall but I do have too mention to make sure you hook a safety chain to the boat before you pull up from the landing. I seriously wrecked my prop and lower unit because it didn’t lock. This unit has failed to lock on four other occasions. As long as I attached the safety chain on before I pull up the landing, I feel safe. Other than that, I am very happy with the unit. It does leave white markings on the front of the boat when you drive up to lock it.

I bought one after seeing it at the boat show. Of course I was skeptical at first because everyone says their instrument is the best thing since sliced bread. This time I am thrilled with this purchase it is the best. My friends are jealous and have been taking videos. I will never own another boat trailer that does not have this attached. I am amazed that manufacturers don’t offer to put it on your trailer when you order your boat. That’s not a big problem though it took less than 5 minutes to install and adjust.
