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.

Boat latch seems to be well made. I had to adjust the winch tower to accomadate the latch and boat position on the bunks. Once that was accomplished this product is great for self loading. I used to climb a tailgate ladder then walk out on the tongue to latch my boat. With this latch I just drive on the trailer up to the latch until it clicks. Then I can pull the trailer out and finish securing the boat. Wish I had it 20 years ago!

Best thing I ever purchased. It works just like the add said it would. Easy off and easy on. Can load and unload by yourself which is important to me

Installed it this week and finally got to try it today. Works awesome. I usually have people with me to help so I placed the lever against my winch handle and turned it putting pressure on release handle. It let the boat slide off perfect while they held my lines. When I returned for the day I drove it on slowly and as soon as it hit the latch it locked it on. Very impressed so far. I have a SeaVee 260B. I was a little concerned being that all the videos showed lighter boats. Happy Customer.

One of the best additions to my boat. Installed in less than 20 minutes. Time will be the true test. So far so good. Works great. Bit of a learning curve on trailer depth.

I have only used it once but I loaded up and she snapped right in place and then away we went. No more cranking that heavy boat up.

I bought this last year and have loaded and unloaded my boat maybe 50 times since installing it. I am happy with it overall but I do have too mention to make sure you hook a safety chain to the boat before you pull up from the landing. I seriously wrecked my prop and lower unit because it didn’t lock. This unit has failed to lock on four other occasions. As long as I attached the safety chain on before I pull up the landing, I feel safe. Other than that, I am very happy with the unit. It does leave white markings on the front of the boat when you drive up to lock it.

I bought one after seeing it at the boat show. Of course I was skeptical at first because everyone says their instrument is the best thing since sliced bread. This time I am thrilled with this purchase it is the best. My friends are jealous and have been taking videos. I will never own another boat trailer that does not have this attached. I am amazed that manufacturers don’t offer to put it on your trailer when you order your boat. That’s not a big problem though it took less than 5 minutes to install and adjust.

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!

Hooked the Drotto Boat Latch up today at the lake. Took about 5 minutes. Came off the lake and it worked perfectly. Great investment.
