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.

Drotto Boat Latch Videos – Bunk Trailer Installation

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.

This is the BEST addition to my Ranger Trailer bar none! Given I am turning 76 this year, I don't have the energy I use to have and launching and loading my boat had gotten to be somewhat of a chore. I have a 20ft Ranger loaded to the "gills" which means it is a handful at the ramp. The Boat2Trailer Boat Latch has really been a time savor, as well as, spared me from expending a great deal of energy (best part of the equation). It only took me 45 minutes to Install the item. The video on YouTube was a big help.....

Works like a dream. As others have mentioned it pulled my Competitor 165 forward a couple of inches but I loosened the winch stand and slid it forward to compensate.

This a 5 star just on customer service alone. I placed my order late on Saturday afternoon and had a question afterwards. I sent email later that night and had a positive response back on Sunday morning!! WHO DOES THAT?!? I'm counting on the latch working just as well !

I fish with my 9 year old son 99% of the time so it is just me launching and loading. However, I had rotator cuff surgery on my dominant arm in March. Trying to reach over and hook up is extremely painful for me and trying to do it standing to the trailer is impossible with my range of motion. I showed this to my wife and she ordered it for Father's Day.

I took the boat out yesterday and installed it. I have a Phoenix Bass Boat with a 4" roller so we had to go with the 3 3/4" version and I added washers to each side so it was centered. The install went smooth and took about 10 minutes. Just as side note if you have a 4" roller you will likely need to used the same bolt that is currently on your trailer's roller. I caught this before the install so it was not a big deal. I got the master lock so the bolt that came with it would not work for sure.

Yesterday was a windy day once we got back from fishing we had some water skiers and strong wind making for challenging loading conditions and this think worked like a champ. It will cut minutes off of launching and loading you boat.

I absolutely love this device. I have had both knees replaced and it was very hard for me to go fishing by myself but this device has given me the freedom I was looking for. I have friends that are talking about getting this device. Thank you Boat2Trailer Drotto Boat Latch.

Only thing that could make it easier to loadout would be a chauffeur! Makes loading out easy peasy.

The latch works as advertised. Would have given it five stars but it set my boat back about 4 inches on the trailer (Lund boat & shorelander trailer). I will have to figure out a bracket for rear tie downs. I have a swing away hitch so can not move my front post foreward. Perhaps Drotto could figure that out & and market them.
