PVC extrusion coated strap grips rods and resists hook penetration
Easy installation with mounting template included
RodBuckle Designed by fishermen for fishermen, the RodBuckle Retractable Rod Hold-Down System is the most attractive and functional rod hold-down system on the market for deck style fishing boats. The self-retracting polyester strap extends a full 24'' and securely locks into position on the deck. The PVC extrusion coated strap grips rods and resists hook penetration. When not in use, it neatly retracts out of the way. Easy installation with mounting template included.
Top Deck Mount Adapter The top deck adapter (sold separately) can be mounted directly to the deck, without cutting into the gunwale.
Concealed Mounting Kit The concealed mounting kit (sold separately) offers the option of mounting the retractor inside of the gunwale.

The mounting screws sent to me were to short to pass through the adapter into the side of my boat. I had to go to the hardware & purchase 3" screws to make it work.

Best product I've used of this kind. Very Durable too. I've had my boat for 6yrs. and this is the first time i've had to replace one. Retracts out of the way and securly holds rods and net.

A little difficult to install, but awesome none the less. By far the best deck mounted rod holders I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HillsboroRiver Best rod hold down system ever.
I've used many different rod holders in my boats. These are the best. User friendly and very rugged. Also easy to install.

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.
