The simple design allows you to quickly attach these Bass Pro Shops® PVC Coated Rod Holders to your boat or dock making it easier to fish with multiple rods. Constructed from PVC-coated die-cast aluminum, these portable rod holders are corrosion resistant and adjustable. The Standard model adjusts vertically to obtain the desired rod angle and the Deluxe adjusts both vertically and horizontally, rotating 360 degrees. The standard size rod holder fits up to 1-5/8’’ diameter rods, the deluxe mounts up to 2-5/8’’ diameter rods and the clamp on fits up to 2-1/4'' and 3-1/4'' diameter rods.
Ok, a few weeks ago my buddy and I were at Bass Pro Shops in Portage, IN. He went ahead and bought this cheap rod holder for my Tracker Topper 14. So, I took it apart and rearranged it for the side of my jon boat, and I finally got it to stay on the side after bending the metal and using pliers to make it stay tight. That one works great.
So, I decided to spend the paltry $4.19 online at Bass Pro Shops because I was ordering other items so I could use one. I got the same one, but I just couldn't get it to work. The screw was made just so cheap it just stripped out. I couldn't get it to grab tightly to the side of the aluminum boat. After messing with it for 30 minutes, using a bench vise to bend it and multiple pliers, I just tossed it into the recycling bin.
I guess you get what you pay for. At least we have one rod holder in the boat that works.

Not worth the price
I returned this item due to it not fitting well on the side of my Jon boat. I then ordered the lower priced non coated unit at 1/2 the price of the PVC coated rod holder. Even then I had to rework the thumb screw and the long hold down clamp washer to improve the holding power of the unit. Buy a higher priced, better made unit. Even in the days, "Sometime you get what you pay for".

Excellent clamp base rod holder.... Used it to hold rod from wooden dock railings. Holder is thickly coated and uses a rubber gasket to hold the rod attachment from sliding.

Probably - not sure - I believe it is the power of the motor that loosens up the screwing on mechanisms - I am going to mount the next ones to the side of the boat as we like to troll for Lakers and Salmon and these just come loose to fast.
