Bow Roller


Bow Roller

Bow rollers are extremely common on boat trailers. They are usually a bell shape or a rubber V. They are typically made of thermal plasticized rubber (TPR) or essentially rubber. Bow rollers are installed on the front bracket of the winch stand of the trailer. The roller enables the boat to secure against the trailer. The problem with bow rollers is they do not last very long, sometimes mark up the boat and they only serve one purpose. The purpose is to give the boat something to rest against. Many boat owners replace the bow roller every year or two. With a price tag anywhere from $12 to $50, that can add up over the years. So other than buying another bow roller every year what is another option?

Bow Roller Replacement

Bow Roller Replacement on Boat2Trailer

Basically the idea is simple. Replace your existing bow roller with the automatic boat latch on Boat2Trailer. Why is it called an automatic boat latch? Look in the photo above. The latch has a set of jaws or a clamp that will automatically snap shut and lock onto the existing bow eye of a boat. If you are interested in knowing more about how it works CLICK HERE. The bow roller replacement is a no-brainer in many ways. It’s durability is unmatched compared to a bow roller. It is composed of an incredibly long lasting UHMW plastic. The plastic shield helps prevent wear and tear on your boat and the latch as well. If after 10 years you decide to replace the plastic shield, it is a quick replacement process and only takes a few screws. The latch is not a one size fits all, but pretty darn close. It only comes in 2 sizes. Essentially one replaces a smaller roller and one replaces a bigger roller. Here is a link to our page showing what and where to measure to know what size you would need to replace your bow roller Click Here. The automatic boat latch has so many benefits over a common roller it is hard to describe them all in one page.

This thing works awesome. Every trailer should have one. Especially if you fish alone. No wet feet.

after using the Boat 2 Trailer system I am very pleased with it. I mostly go out by myself and this makes it so easy to launch and retrieve my 14' Edgewater 140 center console. Almost every time i go out I get other boaters coming over to look at this setup. Great product!

The Boat2Trailer connector is working better than I could have expected. I installed the mechanism on my Ranger boat trailer, very easy and simple instalation, only had to make one adjustment. I'm 71 years old and fish alone and it has made unloading and loading the boat much easier. I would definitely recommend this product.

I have to say all boats should be required to have these. For me I don’t have to worry about how for the trailers in the water. I just back it up climb in the back, climb in the boat and release. The best part is putting the boat back on the trailer. You don’t have to worry about where the water comes up yo the finders of the trailer. Simply back up all the in the water; not worrying about getting the boat just perfect in the water, and pull boat up and let it click and pull the boat out. So freaking easy. Installation is very easy to do. If you go boating alone this is a must, saves a lot of time and a lot safer.

Best thing I ever purchased. Should have gotten this years ago. I usually fish alone so adding this to my boat trailer really helps with launching and landing my boat. Makes a much safer experience.

I tried other brands, and this is definitely the best. It's great for an old man that has trouble leaning over the trolling motor to hook up the boat.
