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.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
