Retractable Trolling Motor Mounts Guaranteed to Last Forever
Our most cost effective linear mounting system with a lifetime, unlimited use, warranty*. This model is designed to provide a retractable mount base and bracket for your Minn Kota, Motorguide, Rhodan or any other trolling motor. Our system is the only one available that AUTOMATICALLY retracts and can adjust the amount of force needed to move the carriage along the rail in a linear or non-linear fashion.
While useful for a variety of linear positioning needs, right out of the box the SS-12-x series is fully compatible with most Minn Kota, Motorguide and Rhodan trolling motors. Our design is also compatabile with most quick release mounting systems sold today such as RTA-17, MKA-21 and RTA-54**. If you have one of the below listed motors or mounts, the SS-12-15 is all you need.
As an option, we also offer adapters like the BMA-12 and DPA-1 that will prevent you from having to drill additional holes in your boat if you have already previously used other mounts or attached your motor directly to your deck. With one of those adapters there are NO NEW HOLES IN YOUR BOAT!
Need “Quick Release” functionality in addition to the linear positioning that the SS-12 offers? NO PROBLEM, just add a LAN-12 to you order before checkout and you can slide the entire carriage bracket off the rail when you don’t need to use it. Additionally, this will also allow you to add up to an additional two (2.0) inches of carriage travel if you application needs it.
