The boat latch is designed to replace the bow roller of your roller trailer or bunk trailer. There are many different models and styles of bow roller setups. The Drotto boat latch is designed to replace your bow roller according to size. The 3″ model replaces your 3″ bow roller and the 3 3/4″ model is designed to replace a bow roller between 3 3/4″ and 4″ ( just add spacers or washers for larger rollers ).

The Drotto latch works perfectly! Pull the rope and slide iff the trailer. Drive up and into the latch and I’m done. Makes launching & loading a breeze.

This Drotto catch and release latch is great. I ordered it and it said 10-14 days to ship. Good deal. The next day, I received an email from Boat2Trailer that my order had been shipped. I received the package the day after. Item was as described and very easy to install. Works flawlessly and I am very happy with this product. I installed it on a 2018 Bass Tracker 190. This thing really cuts down time on the ramp loading up. I’d recommend this product to anyone who has a boat/trailer that is compatible with this. Two thumbs up.

Drotto Latch Large Model: Well made product. Would recommend. Did have one concern. After ordering I saw where their website required that you wait 30 days for delivery before contacting them. I almost canceled the order when I saw this. In today’s world, if the items in stock when you order, if you haven't received it in 10 days, that's a problem. However, the item shipped the next day and I received it just a few days later. The actual buying experience was excellent and would buy from them again.

Just as the video(s) depict.Installation time was about 10 minutes.I have always launched and retrieved my 24' Crownline alone and have gotten rather good at it over the years. The Drotto has cut the time, but more importantly, it has made it dramatically easier. As I physically age, this is becoming more important with a solo launch and retrieve.Of course, I like the American made factor, it is a quality unit.Additionally, the order process was easy, I was kept informed during the cycle and the product came before its estimated arrival.
