Great for jon boats, pontoons, deck boats, dinghies and most other transom-mount boats. Universal Trolling Motor Bracket adjusts into four positions and removes easily when not in use. Features a quick-release pull-knob and 3.5'' x 4'' mounting footprint. Includes mounting hardware.

This mount works well for me on both pontoon boat and bass boat by adjusting position. It does have some flex, but running a screw in the hole provided to supplement the locking pin cuts it down to the place it flexes just enough to protect the motor from bumps. I wish they would provide extra boat mount plates so moving it from one boat to another would be easier.

Rated 1 out of 5 worst purchase ever from bass pro
what a disappointment. I should have listened to the other reveiws.
this product looks great but is worthless!. I have a 40lb thrust Minn Kota that twists the bracket up down left and right! DON'T Buy it.
I will have to go get a bow mount motor for $300.00 so I can fish off my patio boat.
I am packaging this junk up for return.
I STILL love Bass Pro.

The item was pretty much as I expected, when I placed the order. It came neatly packed with all the parts. However, there are NO assembly directions and there are enough small parts that clear instructions with a diagram are needed. This frustration soured the purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FreshwaterDave Bracket not as secure as I prefer
While I followed directions to install it, there seemed to be too much "Play" in the how the bracket held my Minn Kota 40lb thrust motor. It rocked back and forth as I turned it on and off, creating noises that were undesired. If one wanted to be able to remove their motor, why not just use the adjustment screws that were on the motor and not the spring release on the bracket? It is one of the only things I have ever returned to BPS, but it did not hold my motor as securely as I wanted and I figured out a better way to do the job.

Yes, This mount is designed to fit many applications includeing Pontoon, Bass, Jon, runabout, sail and others. The numbers on the photo 1,2,3 and 4 on the illustration indicate the four basic poitions the bracket can be installed in. The stainless steel mounts slide together allowing the motor to be easily removed. Thanks
If I used the bracket only with the boat in the water (not on a trailer) and secured the bracket with a screw in the hole provided, would it work satisfactorily? My only purpose would be to approach quietly into redfish territory.
I see no reason that it wouldn't... In fact, I have given consideration to almost the same thought-- Believing that the extra screw would both take any noisy slack out of the mount, but also make for a stronger mount as a whole. My thought is to use a thumb screw, so it is easy to part the mount as originally designed-- just one extra step.
