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.

I love the concept of this equipment. I am having trouble getting it to work 100% of the time and have tried adjusting the unit, but right now it is hit and miss.

This Drotto boat latch has added years to my fishing career. Very easy install, and it's built to last forever. Just pull on the trailer, click in and go!

Easy to install and adjust. Makes loading my boat easy by myself. No more laying on the trolling motor trying to reach the crank handle.

Delivery was timely, but I did not install the device on my trailer yet as my mobility is limited recovering from knee surgery. I will revise my post in few weeks.

Boat2Trailer was good to deal with and their product arrived in a timely fashion. The unit has yet to be mounted because I'm waiting for other modifications to the completed on the new Princecraft Ventura 224.

I fish a lot by myself and this piece of equipment is a must. Upon loading my boat onto the trailer it's pull up until it clicks. No more running up to hook the wench on before the boat slips back. Even easier when there's 2 people. Back down trailer, pull boat on, "click", pull up ramp and get out of the way. Finish hookup clear of the ramp. Must have!

Once I figured out that I needed to back the trailer in a little further during the loading process the Drotto has worked as advertised. I was able to install it at home using a small jack to raise my Lund enough to remove the existing roller. It has definitely speeded up the loading process.
