Bow Stop Replacement


Bow Stop

Buying a Bow Stop Replacement is extremely common on boat trailers. They are usually a rubber V on the front of the trailer. They are typically made of thermal plasticized rubber (TPR) or essentially rubber. A Bow stop is installed on the front bracket of the winch stand of the trailer. The stop enables the boat to secure tightly against the boat trailer. The problem with a bow stop is they do not last very long and can sometimes mark up the boat. The purpose of a bow stop is to simply give the boat something to rest against. Many boat owners replace the bow stop every year or two depending on how often it is used, weather etc. With a price tag anywhere from $12 to $50 for one it can add up over the years. So other than buying another bow stop every year what is another option?

Bow Roller Replacement

Bow Stop Replacement on Boat2Trailer

Basically the idea is simple. Replace your existing bow stop or rubber V with the automatic boat latch on Boat2Trailer. Why is it called an automatic boat latch? Look in the photo above. The boat latch has a set of jaws or a clamp built into the mechanism 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 stop replacement is definitely a huge help to those who fish alone. You no longer have to hang over the boat or get into the water to hookup the strap and chain. It’s durability is unmatched compared to a bow stop. The latch is composed of an incredibly long lasting UHMW plastic shield that 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 close. The latch only comes in 2 sizes. Essentially one size replaces a smaller stop and one size replaces a bigger stop. Here is a link to our page showing what and where to measure to know what size you would need to replace your bow stop 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 product is awesome, The key is to put the trailer in the water at the same water level each time, this will ensure you can drive the boat onto the trailer and it will lock in. This works very well when bunks are adjusted low and direct the boat hull straight onto the trailer. The winch strap is hooked on after boat clicks into place., as an added fastener.

For loading and launching this device is the best thing ever! I installed mine in the garage. I simply removed the old bow stop and adjusted the new drotto to the right height for a perfect fit. The first time I used it on my 17’ Glastron the two guys with me just dropped their jaws when it locked on for loading. Highly recommend!

Product is well made and makes loading so much easier. I feel a tether for the pin and set screw should be included like I added to mine.

I installed mine @ the house & did the final adjustments @ the boat ramp & found that I cant see the B2T latch during the final latching time. I'd bump the throttle & miss the latch. To cure this problem I removed the rubber cap on the ratchet support post & using a PVC pole & Cap (painted to match the boat) It stand above the bow for easy boat retrieval.

Drotto latch arrived quickly and is a perfect fit. Hardest part was getting the old bolts loose. Total install was about 20 minutes.

So far very happy. Have launched and loaded several times and it has worked perfectly. The first time I didn't drive on far enough to get locked in but since then no problem. Several people have mentioned having to reposition the winch mast so the boat was in the right place on the trailer. I just loosened the mast right in my garage, installed the unit, and slid the mast back till the boat was locked in and tightened everything back down. Worked fine. No need to launch the boat to install.We just purchased a much larger boat and were worried that it would be difficult for my wife and I to launch and load by ourselves. We have both remarked that with the new automatic unit it is the easiest boat to launch and load we have ever owned. No more getting in the Lake to hook up before driving out of the water.

Installation was a breeze, it was a legit 10minute process at the boat launch. I've only used it twice so far since the install, awesome! I've really never had a problem without it but man is it sweet with it. Works as advertised so far. Now I just hope it lasts!

I was not happy about having to put the boat in the water to install the boat2trailer. But it took less than 30 min. I had to adjust it twice. Now it works like a dream. I boat by myself most of the time and this was perfect for me.
