Ultra Heavy Duty 12 inch Retractable Quick Release Trolling Motor Mount Guaranteed to Last Forever

CNC Machined from 0.25″ and 0.50″ thick 6061-T6 plate this is our strongest linear mounting system with a lifetime, unlimited use, warranty*.  This model retracts 12.13 inches and is designed to provide a retractable mount base and bracket for your Minn Kota, Motorguide, Rhodan or any other trolling motor as well as many standard quick release mounts such as RTA-17, MKA-21 and RTA-54**.  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 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-UHD instead of other models?

  • Fully supports motor shaft lengths up to 98 inches
  • The Stainless Steel brackets that attach to your motor are 50% thicker than our other models
  • Extra retractable range to clear deck hatches, lights, cleats or just have the motor even further inside the boat.
  • The SS-12-UHD has all of the features of the SS-9-HD PLUS it uses a thicker 0.50″ base and thicker 0.188″ stainless steel brackets.  This allows the mount to protrude further out from a flat deck surface unsuported for boats that have a large slope from the deck to the rub rail.  This is common on off shore vessels like Contenders, etc.
  • Standard SS-X-UHD features that are also automatically included
    • Provide enough retraction to bring any motor fully inside the rub rail.
      • Though uncommon, if you need more than 12 inches we fully support up to 20 inches with our SS-X-UHD product that is sold per inch.  Typical installs with modern motors do not need this.
    • Handles gaps and small spans if your deck is uneven or has a slope or angled section that extends down to the rub rail that prevents positioning mounts close enough to the waterline to allow clearance of the trolling motor shaft.
    • You have a heavy motor with a shaft length over 64 inches and/or in combination with thrust over 80lbs capability, or your going to use the motor in heavy seas such as offshore wreck fishing or anywhere the weather can change or present challenging fishing conditions that demand the highest strength and most stable platform possible for your equipment.
    • Your motor has a large skeg and you want to ensure it is fully inside the rub rail when retracted.
    • While we highly recommend all 8 holes in your deck to attach the SS-12-UHD, it can be mounted with only 6 holes in your deck using the alternate bolt pattern in the base.
    • This model supports using your own desired countersunk hole pattern in the bottom plate in conjunction with using the minimum 6 holes listed above.  This improves compatibility with many difficult installations.

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.

    The 12 inch UHD mount fit my needs perfectly especially when coupled with the Reach extension. It is very sturdy and made with quality. Engineering is spot on!
