Do I need the one with the added roller?

Do I have to hit the Drotto boat latch exactly straight on in order for it to latch?

No. The Drotto boat latch is approximately 8″ wide. When the bow of the boat comes into contact with the V shaped plastic it helps guide the boat and bow eye to the center.

Should I keep the arm on at all times?

We recommend removing the arm when not in use and during travel.

Does it work on fiberglass boats?

Yes. It works on fiberglass and aluminum boats alike.

Does this work on Pontoons or flat front boats?

No, The Drotto Boat Latch does not work on pontoons or flat front boats.

Does it work on Roller Trailers and Bunk Trailers?

Yes the Drotto Boat Latch works on both bunk trailers and roller trailers alike.

How does it work in the wind and waves?

Customer Review… “Wind from the side or back does not affect loading onto this any differently than it would affect loading onto a standard roller….
Matter of fact, this is way better because when you nose into it, it latches..!
And you’re no longer fighting the wind or waves to go up and hook your winch strap onto your boat eye..”

I wish I had purchased this unit a long time ago. I’m 73 and just had surgery on my back so it’s a little hard to get my boat on the trailer after installation of the Drotto I load the boat in a couple of minutes and out of the water with no problem. Thank you Drotto for a great product.

Had to modify the trailer as my Mastercraft trailer had a welded mounting post.Drotto fit great but to high after install. Had to cut mounts shorter on trailer and redrill mounting holes. Seems to work great so far.

I fish mostly with my young Son, so the Drotto has helped me load and unload so much quicker and easier than wading in the water with a rope. I'm very happy with the product, and would recommend it for anyone who loads and unloads by yourself.

I love the new Drotto Boat2Trailer hitch. People actually take a double take at the boat ramp when I load my boat. It so fast and effortless to load and unload. The hitch worked flawlessly from day 1. Read instructions and installed with boat on trailer in the garage. Easy as 1 2 3. I have an 1850 Lund Impact XS on a lund roller trailer. Perfect fit. I would recommend your product to any fisherman who hates wasting time at busy landings and want a superior product.

This device is incredible ! The only way you could make launching and retrieving your boat any easier is to not go boating . If you don’t want to get your feet wet or do the “tight rope “ walk down the trailer tongue to launch and retrieve your boat, I highly recommend this product. Since I launch and load our boat by myself, this device has added more years to our boating enjoyment ! Great product, easy to use and easy to install !

Have had great success with this product. It's great for fishing alone. And it works great when you are unloading at a steep ramp. I recommend it highly.
