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 real loose, simply drive the boat back into the trailer and 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.

I bought this last year and have loaded and unloaded my boat maybe 50 times since installing it. I am happy with it overall but I do have too mention to make sure you hook a safety chain to the boat before you pull up from the landing. I seriously wrecked my prop and lower unit because it didn’t lock. This unit has failed to lock on four other occasions. As long as I attached the safety chain on before I pull up the landing, I feel safe. Other than that, I am very happy with the unit. It does leave white markings on the front of the boat when you drive up to lock it.

I bought one after seeing it at the boat show. Of course I was skeptical at first because everyone says their instrument is the best thing since sliced bread. This time I am thrilled with this purchase it is the best. My friends are jealous and have been taking videos. I will never own another boat trailer that does not have this attached. I am amazed that manufacturers don’t offer to put it on your trailer when you order your boat. That’s not a big problem though it took less than 5 minutes to install and adjust.

Able to retrieve my boat and keep my feet dry. No more climbing out on the trailer tongue. These should be on every boat trailer!

I installed this on my boat trailer and it is an absolute must have. Makes loading and unloading so much easier and safer! Fishing the Green Bay this weekend and loading in rough water on the Fox River, this made load so simple! Can’t recommend highly enough!

This is a must for your boat trailer!!! Was planning to buy one of these since I fish a lot by myself. At my age at 62 at the time always had to climb over the bow of the boat to hook the trailer strap to the bow of the boat!!! After my stroke two years ago this is the cats meow after I got it!!!! Can't believe more people young or old haven't bought one of these???? Great product, been a life saver and it's worth the money!!!👍👍👏

Got this for my Dad last Christmas and he has loved it so far. He has a 19ft Crestliner with a roller trailer and musky fishes by himself quite often. Actually broke his hand because the boat flew off the trailer launching it a couple of years ago. Laid him up for 9 weeks. Now he just hits the lever while in the boat and drives it to the dock. He's a dentist so he kind of needs those hands. Well worth the safety, the convenience is just the cherry on top

Great product. Easy to install. Easy to use. Wish I would have purchased one of these apparatuses many boats ago.
