Jon Boat Trolling Motor Bracket for Bow or Stern
The plastic device is not ready to take fishing. First you will need to mount a better attachment plate so you can tighten your trolling motor to the bracket to keep it from slipping. Also, the bracket doesn't fit down into a jon boat handle that is on the boat but if you mount another bigger handle device on your boat you can make it slightly bigger so this bracket will fit down into it. Otherwise the round beam on your boat will prevent the bracket from slidding down into the boat handle correctly. It's a good idea the bracket just doesn't fit my 16-ft. standard jon-boat and the quality is less than I expected.

I really like it
This works great for me, before I had it I mounted troller to side, of my 14 ft john boat, this has made it simple ,to mount, and to unmount for traveling, I do agree, on the higher speeds of trolling it does bounce a lil, but so what I'm fishing not racing, I really like this piece of equipment, so I hope this will help some out there.!!!

Trolling motor mount
my boat has a lip on it and I have to hammer it down into the handle. The trolling motor also rocks the bracket back and forth when I use more than minimum power. The bracket is in the handle tight, the bracket just has a lot of give in it.

Works but needs upgrades
While this does work as it's supposed to it could really use some tweaking. It does hold the trolling motor and is a great idea but it is so flimsy it's almost a pain. The trolling motor seems like it wants to break right off it flops back and forth so much (knocks on wood). If this product was made of steel, maybe even aluminum or at least has a way to secure the top part to the front of the boat it would perform much better. A great idea, not so great execution.
