Manufacturing of the Drotto Auto Boat Latch
The Drotto auto boat latch system is constructed of heavy gauge steel that has been zinc coated to prevent rust. The zinc coating also makes the Drotto auto boat latch extremely strong, durable and weather resistant. We have lined the contact surface between the boat and the auto boat latch with a hard, smooth plastic liner to prevent damage to your boat's surface. The 3 3/4" boat latch works with trailers that have a bow roller that measures between 3 3/4" - 4". The Drotto product was originally designed with the extremely popular Shorelander trailer but fits many other trailers as well.
This should be an option when purchasing a trailer. Get these out to boat shows makes launch and loading much easier and safer!
My wife gave me a drotto catch & release for my birthday. (I researched and suggest it). I mounted it and used it yesterday. First, installation was simple. I chose to move the post vs move the boat from trailer position. The drotto r eleased perfectly and latched perfectly. I'm 71 and fish alone during the week this simplifies loading and unloading safely ! Incredibly effective.
Works great for someone who fishes alone like I do sometimes. Still need to hook up your tow strap when going down the road as the claws will work their way open from vibration just make sure they are closed before unloading. Had to adjust the post and crank bracket other than that was easy to install. I jacked up the front of the boat a bit to install and line things up. I would recommend this product to everyone.

Very well made but did not fit well with my Lund SS 16.5 ft boat. Had a hard time locking it on. Returned without any problem. Scheels is a top quality store with excellent customer service.
Received the drotto boat latch for my pro-v 1890. Installation was very simple quick and easy. The system works flawless and makes one man loading and unloading easy-no more hanging over the bow to hook-up
