Heavy Duty 7 Inch Retractable, Quick Release, Trolling Motor Mount Bracket with Lifetime Warranty

SKU: SS-7HD-1 Categories: , Tag:


Heavy Duty 7 Inch Retractable Quick Release Trolling Motor Mount Guaranteed to Last Forever

CNC Machined from 0.25″ 6061-T6 plate this is a strong linear mounting system with a lifetime, unlimited use, warranty*.  This model retracts ~7 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-7-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)
  • ALL HD series mounts require 6 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-7-UHD (first bolt up to 6.5 inches from rub rail) OR a SS-7-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.

  2. MicSimmons

    Perfect set up on my Robalo 246 Cayman, fast shipping, well made

  3. RonKiff88

    Nice product, works well on the boat. It’s a good fit for my Minnkota trolling motor.

  4. flatsfish9

    Great quality and works as expected. Thanks and keep up the good craftsmanship.

  5. Bass_Bridge

    We could not be any happier with the ShuttleSlide!! Installation was a breeze!! Since we purchased two units, we can easily switch our trolling motor between 2 boats. Thank you for all of your help.

  6. D.O’Brien

    ShuttleSlide was really a life saver for me. I was really struggling to find a way to install my new trolling motor on my 70’s Boston Whaler, and the ShuttleSlide made it possible. I couldn’t even find a professional to install it for me, as the marinas are all so busy right now with the uptick in boating recreation during the pandemic. Without the ShuttleSlide, I’m not sure I would have gotten my trolling motor installed this season. I have been really happy with the product, and extremely impressed with the customer service. I would highly recommend the product to anyone in need of alternative mounting options. You guys do a great job – keep up the good work!

    The slide mount is fantastic, I love it. It’s easy to deploy and retract, it’s also easy to pull the trolling motor completely off the boat. Seems to be very well made and should last many years. Also bought the DPA-1.

  8. Grant

    The mount works great (Xpress H22B)

  9. nc_bass1

    Just installed my first one, really well made, great job

  10. Mons_M

    Works like charm. This is installed on a 20 foot xpress boat. H20b. Thanks for a great product.

  11. Sean_Gleason

    It is a great product. My expectations were exceeded. Wagner powerboat

  12. Jerry E.

    I have installed the shuttle slide and it works perfect. it doesn’t hang pass rubber guide, trolling motor slides back inside, no hitting the docks anymore.

  13. pontoon_Ryan

    I am pleased with the purchase. The product was really well thought-out and constructed. It functions just as you guys have referenced on your site; which was a very specific need for mounting our trolling motor on our pontoon boat. I am surprised the motor manufactures do not have anything like your product given the need to satisfy the mounting issue.

  14. GoneFishing

    Shuttle slide is the bombdiggioty!! Best invention ever!!!

  15. Klem_Pirahna

    The install went very well with zero issues. We had to create a battery storage compartment to hold the 12 Lithium Ion batteries and luckily we had enough room in the front small storage box. The slide fit just right and still allows me to utilize the front cleat and not lose any storage which on a 14ft boat is key. Very well made product and worth every penny spent.
