This review is from: Scotty Anchor Lock with 241 Side Deck Mount (Sports) Recently purchased two Scotty Anchor Locks for my fishing boat for use on inland waters. I wanted a quick and easy waY to deploy my tri-fluted river anchors off the bow and stern to quickly position boat for crappie fishing, etc. I also wanted to be able to quickly remove both anchors and replace with my Lake Erie anchor through a different lock system on bow when I head out on the Big Lake. The anchor locks did exactly what I wanted…they deploy quickly, lock securely, and when I want to change anchors, I just pop the lock out of the mount and leave it on the anchor ropes and store whole system in a bucket. Deck mounts are solid and the whole unit appears that it should hold up well. At this point I am completely satisfied with my purchase as these locks have solved a problem situation in a convenient and relatively inexpensive manner. I would highly recommend this product! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply 9 of 9 people found the following review helpful Works perfectly., July 12, 2012 By Logan A. (Chubbuck, Idaho) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Scotty Anchor Lock with 241 Side Deck Mount (Sports) The item functions like a dream, a good dream. You lift the rope in the back up it unlocks and you can let out or pull in line. The picture is a little decieving I believe though. The mechinism isn’t a simple hammer that falls backwards onto the rope. The hammer actually has a hole in it through which the rope passes over down and out the back. Back to front is the direction for which the hammer falls and is shapped from front to back like a backward L. There are opposing teeth on the bottom of the hammer about 3/4 to an inch (surface area) wide and teeth on the bottom of the housing opposing in the opposide direction of the same width. The teeth are are about 1 1/2 mm appart maybe a little less but they grip something fierce. The mechinism and the base are seporate pieces. The top piece can be put into the base at any degree of rotation and is locked in place, in other words the top must be removed, rotated, and placed back in it does not rotate freely. Mine came with no hardware for attachment and takes 4 screws. The screw head can be of varying size. All in all I am very pleased with the product. This was custom mounted onto a creek company sport lt pontoon boat 8′ one man inflatable. The mounting went very well and looks very nice. If you would like to know how I did’t it or want a picture reply or shoot me a message. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (3) Reply 8 of 8 people found the following review helpful This is great, as is the rest of the Scotty system., May 18, 2012 By J. Allen (MI, USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Scotty Anchor Lock with 241 Side Deck Mount (Sports) I started out by purchasing one Anchor Lock with a flush mount and two Rod Holders with side mounts. I’ve loved them all. The Anchor Lock works great, with smooth and efficient operation put together in a VERY sturdy platform. Using 3/8″ solid braid, deploying and retrieving my bow anchor is a breeze with one hand. On top of that, I could potentially move the Anchor Lock to any of the Side Mounts or any of the Rod Holders to bow Flush Mount position of the Anchor Lock. And did I say they’re sturdy? I don’t think you could destroy these if you tried. That being said, you’ll want to take them off and stow them when covering your boat. But no worries, because though you could most likely drag your boat down an asphalt road by them when they’re secured (I won’t be testing my hypothesis), removal and adjustment are a piece of cake. 1.5 seconds. Tops. Literally. If you happen to choose to leave them on, don’t worry, these will be around loooong after you’re gone because they are essentially corrosion-proof. I’m currently writing this review because I’m just about to purchase another Anchor Lock with Flush Mount, and two more Rod Holders with Side Mounts! This will total 4 of the best Rod Holders and 2 of the best Anchor Locks money can buy on my skiff and I couldn’t be happier. Purchase with the utmost confidence. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
