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.
You will notice the chains and straps on the boat have been unhooked in the pre-launch area. The Drotto keeps the boat secure 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. **Please note the latch in this video is an older model with a white plastic. All of our models now come with a black plastic.

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!

I fish a lot by myself and am getting on in age. I needed something to assist me launching and recovering my 19 foot Skeeter. The boat2trailer large latch is perfect. It works as advertised and is the help I needed.

Seems like a very well built product, vert stout, was easy to mount. I have only used it twice but so far so good. I will repost in spring after many uses.

Works as good as they say it does if not better. I just need to learn my trailer depth when launching for an easier release. Picking up not so deep.

Products works as described, however I feel the company should be asking how wide the distance between the forks where the unit mounts to. I Purchased the larger unit that is only 3.625" wide. My trailers gap is 4.0" . Providing a wider unit instead of the customer buying stainless washers to make up the difference and a longer stainless nut and bolt to fit would have been nice.

Top notch company. I have owned three Drotto trailer latches. I have had them on both bunk and roller trailer without any issues. I won't own a boat without one. No more having my fishing partner or wife wade in the water to latch the boat. Makes easy for one person to unload and load if you by yourself. If I have ever needed a replacement part, it has only taken a couple of days to get.

Super easy install, high quality and it worked perfectly. Love it already, although I think my dry-footed friend loved it more. No more wading in to hook up the winch.

Amazing product. Best money I've spent for my boat. We can load the boat in about 15 seconds and be pulling out. Makes everything easier!

Almost perfect for my 2012 VS-621 Ranger boat. The boat is only 3" short of loading up on the trailer like it use to before B2T. Very acceptable.

Hands down the single best purchase for my boat, and immediate delivery was a bonus! Every boat trailer should have this!

Easy to mount. Catches the boat everytime, unless I drive over the top, not their fault! I like it!

The product works perfectly. I deducted one star due to the somewhat misleading shopping experience. I was lead to believe that shipping was free but upon checkout it became clear that it is free only if one enters a code at the very beginning of the process. Faced with a time issue and uncertainty over where to get the code, I was not able to find a way to completely start over and instead paid the shipping.

Well, only have used once. It was pretty hard to get latched the first time. Rough water really gave me fits. Relaunched and 2nd time it hooked up rather quickly. Hopefully will get easier each time I trailer boat.Put on tracker pro guide 16. Installed VERY easily. I bought their locks as it would be very easy to remove in parking lot. Hopefully it will keep honest people honest

package great shape, able to slid my Tracker 175 back far enough to mount on trailer, had to modify my winch hook but works like a charm. So much safer with this installed
