Humminbird Trolling Motor Adapter - Model AD XTM 9
Poorly made product
This produce is overpriced and cheaply made. Have broken two when they should have not broke at all. Save your money and look for an alternative bracket made of metal or get a metal fabricator to make something for you.
It does serve the purpose intended and this is the only reason I gave it a one star, otherwise it would be a zero.

Any slight bump will bust this thing. I broke 2 before I gave up and went to a metal one. Not only is it poorly designed, but it's more expensive than much better ones. Don't waste your money.

low quality, cheap plastic
Bought this to use on my inflatable pontoon boat which has a Minn Kota Endura 30. It's easy to install, but really expensive for what you get.
I think I bumped the transducer on the sandy bottom near the lake shore and this mount/bracket snapped like a toothpick. Unfortunately, I was not surprised. What I was surprised about was the fact that the bracket did not snap sooner, like when I was tightening the hose clamp. If you purchase this product, you will see what I mean when you are tightening down the hose clamp...the mount wants to snap right then and there!
It is probably fine for situations where your trolling motor is semi-permanently mounted to your boat. It is NOT suitable for portability because this bracket cannot take any bumping or abuse whatsoever. Even though the Humminbird transducers have the built in ratcheting thing that is supposed to allow them to withstand a minor bump, this bracket does not use that feature. The bracket will snap way before your transducer will ratchet backwards to absorb any impact.
I wish i had done my research. I figured I would just by the bracket made by my fishfinder's manufacturer. I am disappointed they made a piece of junk. Take a look at the "Rig Rite" brand; their bracket is all metal and cheaper.

Cheaply made junk. Do not waste your money on this. It barely bumped a soft sand bottom and the bracket broke. I tried to repair it with superglue and permanent epoxy but it was no good. Get a metal adapter or get someone who can fabricate metal to make one for you.
