Rated 5 out of 5 by KylesNitro12 Great product
Great product, easy to assemble with included instructions. Bought it to hold the 115 Mercury engine straight while towing. Works great. The only downfall was the over-the-roller adapter just had a pin for quickly disconnecting the adapter. I easily modified it with a standard bolt and locking nut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BostonBassBoy Finally, a transom saver that works
Adjustable sized "V" notch to handle most any boat motor, compressed spring internal to the unit to help cushion any motor jarring from the road, motor locked into position when driving down the road - no loosening and then tilting to the side, easy to install, rugged construction.

Pick up this transom saver from the Altoona, IA. Bass Pro Shop before going the the State Fair. Installed it easily on my ridged framed trailer the next day.After tying 2 knots in the supplied bungie, It hold my 10 hp, short shaft Honda four stroke securely, and makes a 100% difference in the abuse the transom on my 50+ year old, 13' Blue Star V-Bottom was receiving from being towed on the far from smooth roads in NE Iowa that gets me to the Mississippi River. Thank you Bass Pro Shop, for a great transom saver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaBor Well thought out transom saver
I have had other transom savers with a shock absorbing feature that use rubber bushings and this one with a shock absorbing spring seems to work better, but only time will tell. I do like the metal head that limits the motor movement.

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
