Lowrance HDI Trolling Motor Adaptor for Skimmer Transducer
This mount works as advertised. Very easy to install and effective for what it is designed to do. There are some reviews that say they broke out the mounting tabs when tightening. The way it is designed, you do not need to over tighten. Tightens snug without horsing it. Lowrance should put a warning in the mounting instructions, not to over tighten.

Not for 83/200 & 455/800 Transducer
Be advised that this shield will NOT fit the 83/200 & 455/800 kHz transducer ( Lowrance p/n 000-0978-001) that is for the elite combo units. It only fits the 83/200 kHz transducer. The combo transducer is larger.

Simple affordable answer for the HDI transducer on the trolling motor. Picked it up about 6 months ago with no issues. Much more low profile and durable than the old "puck" style transducers on the trolling motor and a lot cheaper than other transducer savers. I have really banged it around on trees and rocks so far so good...

Broke first time used
The trolling motor mount was a simple clean installation. The plastic broke off at the hose clamp slot on one side the first time I had it in the water. The plastic is too brittle and needs to be more durable/flexible to stand up to bumping bottom or stumps which happens when fishing structure.
