It was easy to assemble and install. I like the shock absorbing effect of the spring loaded tubing.

Rated 5 out of 5 Recommend Swivl-Eze® Shock-EZE™ Transom Saver
Swivl-Eze® Shock-EZE™ Transom Saver installed without a hassle. the warning on the support shaft shows it is to be used with a power tilt only... but I placed it on the 25HP Merc electric start (manual tilt) anyway. I suppose this is because there is only one heavy black rubber band to hold the brace in place... bad news if this comes off while trailering and the power tilt would force it to remain in position as a fail safe. Keeps the motor upright -- straight ahead position and keeps it from rotating against the stops. The estimated 4 inch spring (the Shock-EZE™ part of this model) takes the major shock impulses out of the road. This trailer mount is much sturdier than the previous aluminum casting I purchased at a discount store... and the pivoting head hasn't yet damaged my motor quite like the vinyl "V" shaped head on the cheap "discount store" model I had installed earlier--

Seems to work real well in stabilizeing the motor.Like the spring-loaded feature Replaced the old stabilizer because someone ran into the back of my boat,and broke it! It saved my motor,and the new one is even more protection.

you need to measure from the mounting point to the motor when tilted to where you want it, that will tell you how long to get..... DO NOT tilt your motor to far....8" farther back from the down potion should do it give or take
It comes with both the roller attachment and a bolt on trailer mount. I opted to use the roller attachment that fits around the rear roller and doesn't require you to bend over to remove. The bolt on piece has a place for a pin that you would have to remove.
all the savers work well, IF installed correctly, mount to trailer and keep as short as possible never have motor tilted way up, but need don preasure and not to long and they save the back of the boat and lower end from hitting the ground....
most likely not... but i have seen curved ones for that, also if you can mount the bracket in the back then it don't matter......next option is leave motor down if you have plenty of ground clearance then use a rachet strap from the trailer to the motor, you just don't want the motor to bounce up and down, can crack the tramson if you hit to many big pot holes
you'll have to measure the distance from the back roller or the trailer frame to decide the correct distance. The distance really has everything to do with where your specific boat sits on your trailer... and remember this transom saver won't do you a bit of good unless the stern is properly tied down to the trailer without any possibility of migrating or moving when you hit ANY size bump
