Once you have determined the above length, mark this
distance on a stick. Choose the best mounting position on
your transom for the motor. Make sure to select a position
that will not interfere with the turning of the motor.

  • If your transom is less than 2” thick, it is recommended that you use a backing plate to ensure maximum rigidity
  • Always use a safety cable when operating your motor
  • Operate the motor in the lowest possible location to achieve best performance
  • Always raise the motor when note in use
  • Always remove your motor from the bracket when trailering
  • Do not exceed the stated motor capacity

Lowering and Raising the Motor

Note: The springs in the outboard motor bracket are meant to counter the weight of your motor. If you are using a particularly light motor, more pressure may be needed when raising and lowering the motor.

To Lower Motor: Loosen the plastic black tightening screws if needed. Grasp the motor and slowly lower it to the desired height.

To Raise Motor: Pull lever handle towards the boat to disengage locking pin. Grasp motor and lift up to desired height. Release lever handle; the locking pin will lock the motor into place.
