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.

Able to retrieve my boat and keep my feet dry. No more climbing out on the trailer tongue. These should be on every boat trailer!

I installed this on my boat trailer and it is an absolute must have. Makes loading and unloading so much easier and safer! Fishing the Green Bay this weekend and loading in rough water on the Fox River, this made load so simple! Can’t recommend highly enough!

I wouldn't dream of launching our loading a boat without it. I recommend it to all my friends. Best invention since the wheel!

This is a must for your boat trailer!!! Was planning to buy one of these since I fish a lot by myself. At my age at 62 at the time always had to climb over the bow of the boat to hook the trailer strap to the bow of the boat!!! After my stroke two years ago this is the cats meow after I got it!!!! Can't believe more people young or old haven't bought one of these???? Great product, been a life saver and it's worth the money!!!👍👍👏

Got this for my Dad last Christmas and he has loved it so far. He has a 19ft Crestliner with a roller trailer and musky fishes by himself quite often. Actually broke his hand because the boat flew off the trailer launching it a couple of years ago. Laid him up for 9 weeks. Now he just hits the lever while in the boat and drives it to the dock. He's a dentist so he kind of needs those hands. Well worth the safety, the convenience is just the cherry on top

I've had my Drotto for 4 years. I absolutely love it. It makes the boat ramp a breeze and so much safer. Behind my trolling motor it's one of the best things I've purchased for my boat. I recommend it to everyone I've talked to that has a boat. I get stopped all the time when loading and asked what device I'm using. The first couple years it might have cost me time at the ramp from people wanting to know what it is or where I got it. I've went from being the only one at the ramp with one 4 years ago to half the boats having a Drotto. Awesome product. Every boat I ever purchase will have one of these.

I can launch my Lund boat by myself with ease, but, works GREAT when my buddy is in the boat and I drive the truck. We have loading and unloading down to less than 45 seconds from the time the trailer wheels touch the water and when we pull the trailer out. Couldn't be happier!!!!

I bought it for my new lund 1875 impact xs and shore lander trailer and fell in love with it the first time I used it. Works really slick. So simple to use and make unloading and loading the boat much easier. Specially with a roller trailer.
