Drotto Boat Latch Videos

Here are a number of Drotto Boat Latch Videos. We have compiled a few of our Drotto Boat Latch Videos into one easy page to navigate. Below you will see how the Drotto boat latch works for loading and unloading a boat and how to install. See below for Drotto Boat Latch Videos.

Drotto Boat Latch Videos – Boat Loading Videos

This is the boat loading video of the Drotto boat latch videos. You will see how the latch works on a few versions of boat and trailer setups. The first boat is an Alumacraft boat on a prestige bunk trailer. The second boat loading clip is a Ranger 620 on a Rangertrail bunk trailer. The last is an Alumacraft on a roller trailer.

You will notice the boat is brought into the trailer at just above idle speed. When the front end of the boat comes into contact with the over 8″ wide Drotto boat latch, the latch helps guide the boat into the center of the mechanism. Once guided to the center of the latch, the bow eye slides up into the jaws of the latch. When the bow eye contacts the jaws, the jaws automatically lock onto the bow eye. Once locked it secures the boat to the trailer. Now that the boat is secure to the trailer, the boat can be pulled forward into the dry area. Now that you are in the dry area, you may hook up your straps and chains for safe travel.

Drotto Boat Latch Videos – Launching a boat

This is the boat launching video of the Drotto Boat latch videos. You will see how easy is is to launch a boat using the Drotto boat latch. Since the Drotto boat latch keeps the boat secure to the trailer, you may remove your straps and chain at the dry waters edge. Proceed to back your boat down into the water. Once you are in a good depth to launch the boat, simply pull the lever. Pulling the lever will open the jaws on the drotto boat latch and release the boat into the water. The mechanism also stays open awaiting your return. With the jaws remaining open after launch it allows for easy loading and no resetting before loading again. You may then come right back into the latch for a secure loading experience.

Drotto Boat Latch Videos – Roller Trailer Installation

This is the Drotto roller trailer install video of the few Drotto boat latch videos on this page. You will see how easy it is to install the Drotto latch on a roller trailer, We have simply loosened the crank strap and pushed the boat back on the trailer about a 8 inches. Now that the boat is backed off simply remove the bow roller from the front of the trailer. Install the Drotto boat latch within the same bracket mount that held your roller. Try and use the hole on the Drotto boat latch that is closest to the jaws. The other installation hole is just an option if needed. Once the boat latch is bolted in snug simply crank your boat back into the latch. You will hear it click and lock your boat into place. Now simply tighten the bolt. (The boat may push back a few inches on your trailer.) If this is an issue, you may simply slide your entire wench back. Slide the wench toward the tongue of your trailer approx 2 inches by loosening the bracket on the base of the wench.

This is the Drotto Bunk installation video of the few Drotto boat latch videos on this page. You will see how easy it is to install the Drotto latch on a bunk trailer, We have simply launched the boat into the water. Now that the boat is off the trailer simply remove the bow roller from the front of the trailer. Install the Drotto boat latch within the same bracket mount that held your roller. Try and use the hole on the Drotto boat latch that is closest to the jaws. The other installation hole is just an option if needed. Once the boat latch is bolted in snug, but not loose, slowly bring the boat back into the trailer and into the latch. You will hear it click and lock your boat into place. (The boat may push back a few inches on your trailer.) If this is an issue, you may simply slide your entire winch stand back. Slide the winch toward the tongue of your trailer approx 2 inches by loosening the bracket on the base of the winch.

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.

Easy install, best money ever spent. I can launch and trailer by myself with no problems, I get a lot of people asking what it is.
