Tite-Lok C Mount Bases
Bought the smaller size to mount a Driftmaster L'il Pro rodholder to my Alumacraft's round top rail. I didn't want to drill holes and wanted to be able to remove and/or relocate the holder. I got it to work BUT had to drill out and rethread the mounting holes to accomadate the Driftmaster's 3/8" stem. I also filed a 'V' into the swiveling clamp pad such that it would grab the round rail more securely. Holds extremely well now, but I couldn't exactly give it high marks seeing as how I had to somewhat re-engineer and re-machine it!

C Mount Bases
I have used these mounts for years to mount trolling reels on a 7/8" stainless rail. I am able to swing reels out of the way when not in use without total removal. I am about to mount them once angain on my forth boat, so as you can see, they last and are durable. These mounts wre just the ideal mount when I found them several years ago. I reccomend them for nay type mounting that you need as they are very versitile.

Works on Lund 1475 Rebel SS
I was looking for a way to mount rod holders on the gunwales of my Lund 1475 Rebel SS. The gunwales are rounded aluminum and the small Tite-Lok "C" mount base clamps on tightly and doesn't touch the paint. Admittedly, I haven't actually used the matched Tite-Lok rod holders for trolling, but I'm confident they will work well. Unlike most clamps, these have a large knob that makes taking them on/off very easy.

Purchased these because I didn't want to drill lots of holes in my boat railings. They work for the most part okay if you attach them in the center portion of the boat. But if you try and use them toward the front or back of the boat, they lean at about a 20degree angle, so am having to work on some shims. Also the knob on the handle is not very substancial.
