Hot Trim Foot Trim Control
A good product
Had the "Hot Trim" foot control in my first boat and loved it. Had to get one for my second boat. Adds control for those of us that like a tiller. Bass Pro had the best price by far! Most shops and stores sell this for $50.00.

Hot Trim Foot Control
The unit works flawlessly , but the 3 ft wire it comes with is idiotic. How often is a three foot wire going to be enough to wire a remote. If it just included connectors to put your own wires on, it would make more sense than to have to add an extra splice to the wireing before you start. the wires were soldered onto the unit so rather than resolder i had to add splices. I would have been happy to pay for extra wire (10-12 ft) so it would have less connections.

As much as these products will prove to be a useful, i think the manufacturer could have devised a better label. When i had received them in the mail one of the stickers was crooked and barely stuck to the foot switch and i am sure before the season is out, it will have come off and disappeared completely. I have yet to connect and try them so i can not speak to the functionality, however i do not for see issues because of the simplicity of design.

If you have a tilt/trim on your tiller outboard, you need one of these. Just installed the second one on a 40 hp Johnson and first one was on a 75 hp Merc outboard. Helps lighten the steering when on plane, launching and landing the boat, and sneaking around in shallow water. Super easy to install and frees your hands to do whatever else always needs a hand.
