Sometimes, you can't top the original. The Hot Foot Throttle or Adjustable Slide Mount has been on the market for over 20 years, and it's easy to see why. This unique boat accessory improves throttle control for all outboard and inboards. Aluminum casting reduces weight and resists corrosion. Stainless steel hardware and non-sticking/nylon bearing surfaces ensure trouble-free operation. A stainless steel spring in the Hot Foot Throttle or Adjustable Slide Mount returns the engine to idle position when released. Equipped with toe clip for additional safety in extreme operating conditions. Provisions for additional return springing if required. Uses standard control cables for easy hook-up. Mounts directly to floor of boat with four screws (not included).

"Hot Foot" Throttle or Adjustable Slide Mount
Good quality part, quick delivery. Only one problem. No installation instructions in the box or outside the box. I had to go online to find out how to install the hot foot. I also did not know that when you install this, it eliminates the warm up throttle on your controls. So, you have to install another device to warm up the motor.

The Hot Foot is the Real Deal
How can having a gas pedal on your boat not be awesome? Yea it's safer to have a pedal than a hand throttle but who are we kidding? No one buys this for pure safety. People buy it cause it's fun. And the hot foot delivers big.
If you have a big motor on a little boat then this should be standard equipment for ridiculous fun. Throttle control is exponentially improved and as a result the handling is improved since you can now focus solely on steering and not having to work a hand throttle.
I have a 15' Skeeter with a 115hp motor on a 6" jack plate. With the hot foot I make people with jet skis jealous when I go out to play around.

Should be on every boat sold
The Hot Foot throttle is one device that should become required as a safety device on every bass boat sold. I consider this device to be a life saver since it works just like the accelarator on your car. With this device, when you foot comes off the throttle, the main engine will return to idle speed quickly, whereas with the standard hand control throttle it may return and it may not. Safety should be the most important issue when out on the water and a run away boat is not very safe.

I installed a Hot Foot on my 1999 Nitro 700 LX 6 years ago and loved it so much, I had to buy one for my new Skeeter ZX.

If your floor is thick enough or made for a hot foot it is much easier.You can find out by calling the boat company and asking.If not it requires fiberglass piece of wood and alot of skill before you can even mount it.If it is thick enough buy a motor manual(because you will have to remove the throttle cable,and sync-and link the hot foot with the carb linkage.the manual will give you step by step instructions.Including hot foot instructions).You can get away with putting throttle cable off motor in bilge area as long as it does not bind on anything and motor is free to turn easiely.this way dont have to remove control box,and you can hook up later if needed.Then get control cable about 3 feet longer than on boat. use 3M 5200 on screws for hot foot.follow instructions.
You would use the existing hand control to make your gear selection and the Hot Foot controls the throttle position. If you have a trim / tilt switch on your hand control it will still function as normal.
