Stainless steel drop-in adapter turns a standard flush-mounted rod holder into a swivel rod holder. Fits inside any holder that has a 1-9/16" or larger inner diameter. Secures over gimbal bar. Smooth release clutch has adjustable resistance.


Features:

  • Drop-in swivel gimbal cup instantly converts a standard fishing rod holder into a swivel rod holder
  • Easy to install and remove - just drop it into the tube of your flush-mounted rod holder
    • Notched at the bottom to fit securely on top of the gimbal bar
  • 360-Degree rotation in either direction
  • Adjustable-resistance clutch lets you control the amount of pressure needed to turn the swivel gimbal cup
    • Smooth releasing so it won't jerk your rod
  • Heavy-duty 316L stainless steel construction is rustproof and corrosion resistant
    • Single-piece, precision-machined swivel gimbal cup is strong and durable
  • Built-in gimbal bar helps keep your rod from spinning independently of the swivel cup


Specs:

  • Application: flush-mounted rod holders with a 1-9/16" or larger inner diameter
  • Overall dimensions: 2-5/8" tall x 1-1/2" in diameter
  • Built-in gimbal bar dimensions: 1/4" wide x 5/8" tall


The CE Smith drop-in swivel fits inside the tube of your existing rod holder.

This drop-in swivel adapter instantly turns any standard flush-mounted fishing rod holder with a minimum inner diameter of 1-9/16" into a swivel-bottom rod holder. To install, simply drop the adapter into your holder. Notches are cut into the bottom of the adapter, allowing it to fit securely on top of the gimbal bar inside your rod holder. This adapter provides a cost-effective way for you to use a swivel holder without having to replace your current, standard rod holder.


Strong Swiveling Action

This precision-machined, cast swivel gimbal cup rotates a full 360 degrees in either direction, allowing your rod to turn in the direction that the line is pulled when you get a big bite. This reduces the risk of your line breaking. It is also ideal for high-speed trolling when using a fishing rod with a bent butt. And, the drop-in adapter has a sturdy 1/4" wide x 5/8" tall gimbal bar to keep your rod from spinning independently of the swivel cup.


The swivel gimbal cup remains stationary until it is triggered by the adjustable, smooth-release clutch. The clutch will activate when a certain amount of pressure is placed on your fishing rod to turn. This occurs when a fish pulls your line with enough intensity to pull your rod in a different direction. The clutch releases smoothly so the swivel cup, and your rod, turn to follow the line without jerking. You can adjust the amount of pressure it takes to activate the clutch by tightening or loosening the threaded nut on the bottom of the adapter.


Sturdy, Rustproof Stainless Steel Construction

The swivel adapter is made of 316L stainless steel, which is highly resistant to corrosion and rust, even when exposed to saltwater.

  • Is CE Smith Drop-In Swivel Adapter # CE53690A Compatible with Other Brand Rod Holders
    The CE Smith Drop-In Swivel Adapter # CE53690A referenced in your question will fit any flush-mounted rod holder that has a 1-9/16 inch or larger inner diameter, not just those from CE Smith. The adapter allows for 360-degree rotation in either direction so your rod can turn in the direction of your next potential catch. I spoke with my contact at CE Smith and she said the adapter will work perfectly in a 15 degree rod holder (assuming it features dimensions matching the above specs).
