Ultra HD 9 Inch Retractable, Quick Release, Trolling Motor Mount Bracket with Lifetime Warranty. (72″ Max Shaft)

SKU: SS-9UHD Categories: , Tag:


Ultra Heavy Duty 9 inch Retractable Quick Release Trolling Motor Mount Guaranteed to Last Forever

CNC Machined from 0.25″ and 0.50″ thick 6061-T6 plate this linear mounting system with comes with a lifetime, unlimited use, warranty*.  This model retracts 9 inches and is designed to provide a retractable mount base and bracket for your Minn Kota, Motorguide, Rhodan, Garmin, Power Pole, Lowarance or any other trolling motor as well as many standard quick release mounts such as RTA-17, MKA-21, RTA-54, RTA-62, MKA-64**.  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-9-UHD instead of the SS-9-HD?

  • Fully supports motor shaft lengths up to 72 Inches! (Need longer? EXD series supports up to 108″)
  • Can be mounted so the first bolt through your deck is 6.5 inches from the rub rail (Optional BMAP-RE adapter can increase this distance up to 10.5 inches!!)
  • The Stainless Steel brackets that attach to your motor are 50% thicker than our other models
  • The SS-9-UHD has all of the features of the SS-9-HD PLUS it uses a thicker 0.50″ base and 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-9-UHD features that are also automatically included
    • Additional mounting options vs our HD series mounts with a bolt pattern further back on the deck and away from the rub rail to provide more flexible installation choices.
    • Provides enough retraction to bring most motors fully inside the rub rail.
      • Though uncommon, if you need more than 9 inches we fully support up to 44(!!) 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 up to 72 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.
    • UHD mounts up to 10 inch models require using the 4 countersunk holes in the base of the mount at minimum for proper attachment

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.

  1. MitchG

    Needed one for my Contender. The slope of the bow to the rub rail was steep and I couldn’t get the trolling motor close enough. The ultra heavy duty version solved that issue. It’s sturdy, tough and does a good job of retracting my motor. The support team was fantastic to work with.

  2. McKee24

    The installation went well on my McKee Craft Freedom 24. It was the perfect length for my application.

  3. Localseafox205

    I have been quite happy with the mount and it’s allowed me to mount my trolling motor the way I wanted to. Before Shuttleslide there was no other way to make the trolling motor work with the slope I have on my Seafox 205 Bayfisher.

  4. G_Pettinaro

    I couldn’t be happier with the mount, your customer service was outstanding. If I needed another mount I wouldn’t hesitate in buying another. I’m really happy would the ShuttleSlide. Installer a Minn Kota Riptide Terrova 112lb 72” shaft on a 23’ Tidewater CC.

  5. Ron L.

    Your slide allows me to pull the head of the motor inboard on my Contender 25T to prevent impact with a piling or dock.

  6. BullsBay_Wade

    I needed a trolling motor mounting solution for my Riptide on a deep V Bulls Bay 230. The purchase, support, and shipping was top notch. The instructions were very clear after you mocked the set-up. The product I purchased could not handle the stress I was encountering off-shore, but customer support contacted me within minutes of my e-mail inquiry, and it was on a Saturday! The support I received was hands down world class and a replacement piece was sent to me at no cost within 3-days. I love my 9UHD shuttle slide product. It works as stated and keeps your mount looking very professional. I might have only just started using this mount, but visually the construction is simple, yet strong, and looks to be able to handle years of use.

    I purchased the SS-9-UHD in July 2020 to mount my Minn Kota Riptide Terrova with 87″ shaft. I had one estimate of $1200 to install the Minn Kota on my Angler 2600 from the Minn Kota dealer. I thought that was outrageous once I reviewed the installation instructions. Using the SS-9-UHD did not add any difficulty to the installation. I did the installation myself with the help of another fishing buddy and saved the $1200. Since I was only able to use 4 mounting holes instead of the six, I bought a backing plate to enhance the strength of the mount. I am very pleased with the ShuttleSlide since it allows me to keep the trolling motor inside the boat when it is stored in the boats running position. The trolling motor can be removed for security. Although reattaching the trolling motor is somewhat difficult due to the weigh of the motor. I am considering purchasing the accessory plate which will allow me to use the RTA-54 quick release bracket that came with the motor. Dropping the motor on the puck will be much easier than trying to align the mounting brackets with the slots on the ShuttleSlide. If you are concerned about your trolling motor being exposed outside the rub rail then the ShuttleSlide is for you. The customer support was great and Russ at ShuttleSlide was always available to answer any technical questions. I highly recommend ShuttleSlide.

    The installation came out great and was fairly easy overall. I am very happy with it. 72″ Riptide Ulterra

  9. BTeunis

    I sent some photos of shuttle slide and backing plate on my Robalo R272 for offshore fishing. Install went well, with some assistance from my neighbor, in measuring, holding and bolting. Retracted it, stays within rub rails on boat and still allows access, if needed, to forward anchor locker.

  10. Evans.R

    I’m LOVING this mount. It’s rock solid and fit my application perfectly. I’ve got an older skiff and fish standing on the small front deck. I needed something that didn’t take up precious foot space and also worked with my new Terrova (had a scissor style previously). This mount did it. My only issue was navigating the online installation instructions. Customer service was so helpful on the phone and mentioned the instructions were being updated.

  11. Ruiz1

    The SS-9-UHD and BMAP-54 that I have purchased, it worked perfect, it has a rating of 10 out of 10,
    I can protect my 84″ Rhodan 36 volt from bumping into the marina or against or other boats because I can roll it in so I get better protection.

  12. Ducan1

    I could not be happier with you guys service, shipping was super fast, and bracket worked exactly as designed. I have seen so many folks mount there trolling motors ways that may work but not the best way, your bracket makes the mounting so much superior to others. And the opportunity to speak to the technicians, which was obviously much more then a call center! I have told everyone about your product, that I talk fishing with.

  13. YellowFin_Scott

    My ShuttleSlide (SS) install came out better than expected on my 31′ Yellowfin. I used the SS because I did not like my motor hanging over the edge of the bow when folded down. The SS also sits up a little higher and would slide over the 6” wide front lip on the bow. After I got the SS, I noticed it was narrow enough to fit between my running lights and bow cleats, back far enough to keep from blocking the running lights and, high enough to put a dock line around both cleats. In the end, the Rhodan barely hangs over the bow when running and out of the way for the trailer and docking. I’m pleased with the way it all came out. Thanks again for all your help.

  14. Rick F.

    This is a very high quality product, machined to precise tolerances; the hardware fit exactly as it should and my interaction with customer service was outstanding. They were responsive (including a reply on a weekend evening during the installation!) knowledgeable and far exceeded my expectations. You guys Rock!

  15. Grobler

    It is doing what it is supposed to do and it looks good on the boat. Customer Service has been exceptional.

  16. Scott.Olson

    I have no idea why people have their $4000 of trolling motor protruding 10 inches over the rail. Perfect solution for this boat,Seaswirl Striper 2601.
    Thanks you guys were awesome.

  17. baker_fish

    The ShuttleSlide Mount for my Motorguide trolling motor works great. Very pleased with the mount. Was easy to install, takes up very little space, and is very well built. Sliding trolling motor in to store and out to deploy is very easy. Very pleased I went with the ShuttleSlide.

  18. jim.fanafi56

    It went fantastic!!!! On a boat like mine (Nitro 640) it was the BEST option out there. I was in military subcontracting dealing with the quality of mil spec products for many years and your company provides an incredible design with machining, tolerances, and fit that just aren’t available anymore. Six Stars.

  19. Bud Carroll

    Awesome product, does everything you promised. No more slamming into the dock. Thank you

  20. david-0813

    This is a rock-solid product and easy to install. Just read the instructions. They are great folks to talk to and know their products and get you just what you need. Also purchased BMAP-RE

  21. Tim

    I was also going to have to pay to have my cover modified to fit the trolling motor but after being mounted to the slide and moved back, it wasn’t necessary and saved me over $300. Can’t say enough about the product and customer support!

    I did install the mount on my boat and it is great. I posted the review on web board and told where and how great you guys were after ordering.

  23. N.F.

    Great product as especially great to have the skeg just inside rub rail and the height was perfect to pass over cleat and bow light. No need to relocate anything!
