Ironwood Pacific HelmsMate™ Extension Handles
Well worth the money
Very easy to install on my 9hp Johnson motor. The knuckle is very nice for kicker motors installed on the side of the boat. The only thing I wish was it would exstend out about a foot longer.

Dont know what I was thinking when I bought this but I needed to be able to steer and control the speed on my and operated trolling motor from a standing position. Took it out of the box only to realize that the u-joint would allow the handle to just flop down on the ground. No fault of the item itself just a serious oversight on by behalf. Fortunately I am fishing from the front of a pontoon boat so I can extend the handle and just lean it on the rail so its always right there. Very well made solid product.

Most useful purchase
Used on my pontoon boat electric motor. Universal joint is fantastic and I am now able to steer boat without twisting my torso which was painful and uncomfortable.

My boat is a 12-foot with a 6HP Johnson motor. To fish alone is my preference, but I want to quickly jump from one cove on the lake to another. This extension is apparently a composite material, but with a solid brass screw fitting which would appear to last for a long time. The snap extension option is critical to be
useful for different boats. A previous opinion was very encouraging (also for a 12-ft boat and 6HP Johnson outboard). I am very pleased and excited about using it this summer.
