Depth Finder lock -- durafafe

12 posts in this topic

These are locks that can be used to lock the screws on the sides of your depth finder graph.

Does anyone use them? Like them?

Thanks

Get a Johnny-Ray mount and take the LCR off when your trailering it's better for the electronics in the long run.

FA --

Thanks for the info.

I have heard other people say that about electronics -- better to unhook. I also see most people leave them on ... hard to say.

Thanks

Anyone else???

I always pull mine off and store it in a locked storage compartment. I don't know about you guys, but I can't afford to be to careful.

Yeah -- that is true.

The lock thing seems pretty neat, but might be easier and safer just to unhook and take it inside.

I always take it off and keep it in a storage dept. It takes two seconds. This isnt as much as for transporting, but more so I dont forget and leave it facing up towards the sun and rain.

I alway's shake my head when I see guys trailering long distances i.e. from the lakes to fargo with electronics on. That stuff is expensive and stuff in your boat tends to take a beating on trailers with no real suspension short of leaf springs. I mean each is to their own decisions - however in my opinion it's just plain lazy. But then again if money grows on trees so be it.

Take it off while trailering, it's your safest bet.

All good points. I am afraid that I will leave it someplace, it will fall out of the truck or something like that. Maybe I am just being a little to "what if"

The more I think about it the more I think the locks are a waste of money and that it is just as easy to take it off the boat. I think there would be situations that it would be nice to have it but not most of the time.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
