Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Hot Foot 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. August 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 6, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product 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. March 24, 2011

A: 
As long as there is enough room there should not be a problem. Make sure the cable is not kinked in any way and that it moves freely.

A: 
Yes. The Hot Foot by itself is screwed to the floor and cannot be moved easily. With the slide mount, you can still adjust it after the install. It gives you more flexibility.

No. Just run a new longer throttle cable and connect it the Hot Foot then bolt down the Hot Foot to the floor.

A: 
If you are mechanically inclined in any way the install is fairly easy. You might have to order a longer throttle cable to make it work.

A: 
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.

A: 
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.

Yes, in most cases. The instructions say to use a cable that is about 2 to 3 feet longer. Check with the local boat repair shop, they will know what you'll need.

Yes, you need a cable long enough to reach from the hot foot to the engine, which is farther than from the hand controls to the engine.
