  • Launch and retrieve your boat single handed  (from the helm)
  • The latch kit allows you to release the bow of your boat from the trailer whilst you are standing at the boat's helm, so, launching your boat is now easy.
  • When you return to the boat ramp, drive the boat up the trailer then the latch on the bow of your boat will clip into the trailer's part of the latch.
  • Keep your partner …safe, dry and happy or...
  • Go boating when ever you wish without needing crew to help you launch and retreive.


  • Robust
  • Made from 316 grade stanless steel
  • Easy to fit - you don't need to drill holes in your fibrglass boat or weld your aluminium boat.
