What is the Drotto Bow Drop Bracket for?
The Drotto bow drop bracket can be mounted on the face of the Drotto Boat Latch. It helps the tip of a boat from catching on the Drotto boat latch. Some boats are nose heavy or come off the trailer hard and drop the nose. If this occurs the additional bow drop bracket helps the nose roll off the latch and not catch on the tip of the nose. Below you will see our video showing how it works. If you launch at a number of steep landings this may come in handy. Having the bow drop bracket will not hurt having, but may help if ever the nose does drop while launching. We STRONGLY recommend for Triton, Warrior, Ranger, Stratos, Nitro, G3 and Tracker. Others may or may not need the bow drop bracket since they all launch differently. Basically if your nose drops during launching, get the one with the bow drop bracket. If not, you may get the standard latch without it.
Can I add this later or to my existing latch?
The answer is yes. The latch has 2 pre-drilled holes in the face of the latch under the sticker. The bow drop bracket can mount in these holes and be added at anytime.
