Heavy Duty 12 Inch Retractable, Quick Release, Trolling Motor Mount Bracket with Lifetime Warranty

SKU: SS-12HD Categories: , Tag:


Heavy Duty 12 inch Retractable Quick Release Trolling Motor Mount

CNC Machined from 0.25″ 6061-T6 plate this is a strong linear mounting system with a lifetime warranty*.  This model retracts 12.5 inches and is designed to provide a retractable mount base and bracket for your Minn Kota, Motorguide, Rhodan or any other trolling motor with up to 60 inch shaft length.  If you want to use your standard quick release mount such as RTA-17, MKA-21, RTA-54, RTA-62, MKA-64, just add a BMAP-54 and you are all set!  With a built in simple to use quick release mechanism, simply remove the thumb screw and slide the motor off the end of the rail.  Easy!  Our system is the only one available that AUTOMATICALLY retracts on impact and can adjust the amount of force needed to move the carriage along the rail in a linear or non-linear fashion.  Along with the completely hands free integrated brake system that prevents the motor from moving unless you want it to, there is simply no better mounting system available today.

Why choose SS-12-HD?

  • You have a heavy motor with a shaft length up to 60 inches (See UHD products for up to 72 inches and  EXD products for over 72 inches)
  • Provides more retraction to bring your motor fully inside the rub rail when it is mounted at an angle to the rub rail.
    • If you need more than 12 inches we fully support up to 44 inches with our SS-X-HD product that is sold per inch.  Most installs with modern motors do not need this.
  • SS-12-HD mounts require 8 holes in your deck for proper attachment with the first set of bolts at approximately 3.75  inches of the rub rail (refer to picture in gallery).  If you can’t get bolts within 3.75 inches, we recommend using a  SS-12-UHD (first bolt up to 6.5 inches from rub rail) OR a SS-12-UHD + BMAP-RE (first bolt up to 10.5 inches from rub rail)

Like the sound of “NO NEW HOLES IN YOUR BOAT?”

We also offer optional adapters like the BMA-12 and DPA-1 that will prevent you from having to drill additional holes in your boat if you have already previously used other mounts or attached your motor directly to your deck.
