Rite-Hite Trolling Motor Isolator Bolts - 4 Pack
Very poor product
I bought a set of these and they started failing and separating within a few weeks. Reading other reviews, I discovered they used to make the product better with a metal sleeve near the top, but eliminated that. Hopefully somebody reads these from the company.

I replaced these because the old ones broke apart. When I received them only two of the screws were long enough. The company sent me two new ones without any hassel. For some reason the bowmount keeps vibrating loose even though I used lock washers. Maybe Loctite will work. Last alternative is bolt from underneath.

Do not waste your time and money on these mounts! Spent more time finding longer screws.that could reach the threads then the mounts lasted. Have aluminum boat that has a double layer of 100 gauge aluminum. And mounted a minn kota terova 80 lbs thrust motor. Lasted less than 1 hour of trolling. Recommend to spend time making a acess hole to nut the bottom. With supplied stainless hardware. Visit metal shop and buy a piece of scrap aluminum or stainless plate. paint to match boat cover hole and be done and secure. For less money and not having to go wading for trolling motor!

These mounts are terrible. They came loose the first I TOWED the boat to the lake. I bought another set today and even the associate said they get complaints on them all the time. I'm using extra long bolts this time and throwing nuts on from the bottom this go around to make sure I get my motor solid. The only reason I'm even using them is that I'm leary about mounting my trolling motor with no rubber cushion at all. DO NOT waste money on these if you can't access the under side of the deck to help sure them up!
