This model has a fully adjustable height from 20" to 31" to the gimble mounting location. Built with a spring loaded solid locking pin design ensures a secure lock every time. The lower tube is made of 1/8" wall aluminum seamless tubing to give superior strength to your entire setup. Built for life out of 6061 aluminum and 300 series stainless steel hardware, then Hardcoat anodized to give it additional wear and corrosion resistance.
The ability to fold down will enhance visibility and stability as you travel to your favorite spot. Whether it be on the lake in rough water conditions or on the highway, anglers have the option to stowaway their graph for additional protection. The Stowaway also allows for easy tarping of your boat without modifications to your cover.
We strongly suggest mounting in a structurally sound place on your deck that allows you to utilize the support bracket on the tube. This model comes with the extended support tube clamp for mounting elevated above the deck. When folded down the weight of the graph creates extra pressure on the mounting location. The tube support will relieve that pressure and reduce wear and tear on the mount and your deck. The plastic rod is trim to fit like a trolling motor support rod. Standard rod length is 14".
This mount comes in two different variant options. If your adding a Double Graph Mount to this unit you will need to select the Horizontal Folding option so the support rod will swing out of the way of the lower graph.
You only need this model if you plan to mount the unit where the pliers holder/support bracket will not make contact with the deck of the boat. This is a support rod for when to unit is in the stowed locked position. It is not a kickstand to just lean the unit over on.
All new models drilled to fit all Garmin units, Hummingbird except Helix 7, and all Lowrance units.
