Product Description
th_marine_supplies These trailering clips provide an economical way to protect stern drive units while trailering or storing. Trailering clips relieve the stress on the hydraulic tilt and trim system by transferring the stern drive weight from the hydraulic cylinders to the transom bracket. These clips help prevent damage from weight surges during trailering and increase the life of the o-rings, internal seals, and valves in the hydraulic system. Resistant to UV rays, gasoline, oil, and other marine chemicals.

These 12" long clips fit all sterndrives with 3/4" hydraulic rams, including: Mercruiser Alpha I, Alpha I Generation II, Bravo I, Bravo II, Bravo III, and Blackhawk Stern Drives. The clips can also be trimmed to fit shorter rams. Sold in pairs.

    Very easy install

    I have a 305 MerCruiser I/O, I had to cut to size with a hacksaw. It was very easy to do. Install took at most ten minutes.

    Cut to length an use.

    Simple to use once cut to length. A little awkward to hold on to for cutting because of shape. Make sure you get them fully snapped in to place.

      Comments about T-H Marine Supplies Trailering Clips:

      I needed quality trailering clips to support my boat motor when traveling. I could only find the good ones at Gander Mountain. The competition didn't carry them or had the cheap ones I wouldn't trust using. Gander Mountain confirmed my order via e-mail and called when they arrived at my local store for pick-up avoiding shipping fees. This was a great experience and I will trust Gander Mountain with my future needs.

          • Keeps weight off trim

          Comments about T-H Marine Supplies Trailering Clips:

          The instruction show and say to tie them together with the supplied strings and to feed thru the holes.
          product had no holes or string with it!!

          They should either change the directions, or include the strings and manufacure them with holes.
          This assures that they stay together, and keeps them from ever falling off the boat while trailering.

                great for trailering - even keeps drive from dropping if down button is depressed while driving (yeah - the seat hit the down button on the throttle and the drive dropped) They seem strong - but time will tell

                    A:

                    Typically, the trailering clips are used in I/O applications to alleviate the strain on the hydraulics and transom savers are used on O/B's. You still have the weight of the outdrive bouncing on the transom with the trailering clips.

                    A:

                    I used them on an I/O, not an outboard. I would say that since outboard trim cylinders are much shorter and are still near the transom pivot, that a transom saver would offer more support for an outboard application.
