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.

      Rainbows are typically stocked.  Check the DNR for locations.      SE Minnesota, Whitewater, Root river systems have nativized brown trout.     But if you just want meat, go to costco.   Buy them it is cheaper.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
