Rite-Hite Trolling Motor Isolator Bolts - 8 Pack
Not a good product
Bought these to mount a minn kota edge 70lb thrust trolling motor. First trip out the trolling motor was pointing sideways. I hit the foot pedal and nearly twisted the trolling motor right off the boat. The rubber things broke in half and pulled through. That ended my fishing for the day. This product is not the most secure and safest thing to use for mounting a trolling motor.

Good buy for money
These isolator bolts are as good as any. The only problem is the same problem that all isolator bolts seem to have, and that is that bolts that come with them are usually too short. This set was actually better than most. I bought the set of 8 bolts. 4 of the bolts did have long bolts. 4 of them had short bolts. At least this set DID have 4 long bolts. Most seem to only have short bolts. Since the botls in the broken ones can normally be reused, this isn't a huge issue.
All rubber isolator botls such as these will break eventually. These seem to work at least as well as any others I have used.
Summary..I DO recommend these.

i got these to mount my new trolling motor and didnt last a month used the boat twice and on the second time went out and two cast in the motor falls off. Local home store had toggles wich worked great and were cheaper used the tops for insulator.

Fair to midland
The bolts used to secure the rubber base to the trolling motor are not long enough for all trolling motors. If you go with longer bolts, the rubber base does nor expand well and hold the trolling motor to the deck
