This rod Buckle beats the dickens out of the rubber straps. Very easy to install by using the template which is provided. Strongly suggest this over the bungey straps, the reciever buckle is low profile and doesn't present a tripping hazard. Thanks for providing this product, shame its not advertised in your standard catalog alongside the straps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crashpro Great addition to my boat
The rod buckles were very easy to install and look great. Have only been out with them once, but performance was flawless. My fishing partner was very impressed with the convenience and functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 Would buy it again
Great hold down for rods and it took 5 mins to install. Why didn't I order this years ago?

If you want to flush mount this into your boat then you will have to do some cutting on the boat. But it is really easy with the right tools. If you do not want to flush mount it, they sell brackets that screw down to the deck.
if you have a glass boat and your gunale is at least 3" above the floor then it can be flush mounted. If you don't want to cut a large hole in the gunale than purchase the adaptor to surface mount with 2 screws.
It comes ready to install flush with the interior side of your boat. To install it as it comes, you must cut out a hole. A surface mount kit is available that allows installation with just two screw holes, but it will stick out about 1.5 inches or so.
