Simply the best idea ever for the adventurous sportsman! This plate allows access to the previously unreachable fishing or hunting ground with a standard tiller engine without worries of prop damage.
Here’s how it works:
The jackplate is designed to swivel on the rugged stainless steel shaft in case of an obstacle such as a stump or rock while carefully trolling back to the hotspots your buddies can’t reach!
Simply tighten the side swivels to desired setting for your rig size and you are protected from a potential lower unit or prop BOO-BOO! Also included are two safety cables to prevent overtravel swiveling of engine when an obstruction is encountered.
Tighteness is determined by engine reverse requirement. The larger the engine, the tighter the swivels for preventing flip-up during reverse.
This is the only Kick-Up plate manufactured by any manufacturer that has vertical travel similar to a jackplate as well as the kick up function in the case of hitting a log, stump or earth below.
No springs to break and no replacement parts necessary as the JPL9638 is made of aircraft quality aluminum and 3/8 stainless steel chain, grade 316!
Proudly manufactured and assembled
