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 with a Roller Trailer and Bunk Trailer

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 Drotto catch and release latch is great. I ordered it and it said 10-14 days to ship. Good deal. The next day, I received an email from Boat2Trailer that my order had been shipped. I received the package the day after. Item was as described and very easy to install. Works flawlessly and I am very happy with this product. I installed it on a 2018 Bass Tracker 190. This thing really cuts down time on the ramp loading up. I’d recommend this product to anyone who has a boat/trailer that is compatible with this. Two thumbs up.

Drotto Latch Large Model: Well made product. Would recommend. Did have one concern. After ordering I saw where their website required that you wait 30 days for delivery before contacting them. I almost canceled the order when I saw this. In today’s world, if the items in stock when you order, if you haven't received it in 10 days, that's a problem. However, the item shipped the next day and I received it just a few days later. The actual buying experience was excellent and would buy from them again.

Just as the video(s) depict.Installation time was about 10 minutes.I have always launched and retrieved my 24' Crownline alone and have gotten rather good at it over the years. The Drotto has cut the time, but more importantly, it has made it dramatically easier. As I physically age, this is becoming more important with a solo launch and retrieve.Of course, I like the American made factor, it is a quality unit.Additionally, the order process was easy, I was kept informed during the cycle and the product came before its estimated arrival.

Love this product. I have a 2020 Lund Impact 1775. ShorLandr Trailer with composite bunks. This unit installed with ease. No issues. Completed the installation at the launch in minutes. Recovered the boat on the very first try and the Drotto worked as promised. Once recovered I found I had to move the winch tower forward 3". So we backed the boat back into the water at launch. Pulled the rope and she was free. No more wet feet. Moved the winch forward and recovered again - Perfectly! She was on the trailer perfectly aligned with the end of the bunks. I trailed the boat to NY State to one of the Finger Lakes and the latch held for a 600 Mile round trip. Higly recoomend this product. Installation was as described. Easy to use - no brainer! Very well built. Made in the USA. Thank you Drotto and good luck and success.

Excellent product. Took the issues away that my 21’ G3 had while loading due to it’s almost vertical V shaped hull.

Works as designed. Seams to be operating as expected. Just concerned about how long it will hold. I had to modify my trailer bow stop. It’s a double roller type. I modified it to a single roller for Droto to work properly. I’m also concerned with how much weight it’s holding while on my steep boat ramp with a roller trailer. Works great as it is though

I fish a lot by myself and loading my boat is as easy as easy. I don’t use it to unload because I have the ultera self deploy trolling motor. With that said what I use it for is worth every dime.
