Transom savers are designed to protect your boat's transom from road shock, vibrations, and other undue stresses while the boat is being towed. This is particularly important for boats with heavy motor-to-boat weight ratios like johnboats, pontoon boats, and other small vessels. This type of support will be more effective than your boat's standard tilt-lock feature, which wasn't specifically designed to deal with the stresses of road travel.


Installing the Transom Saver

This transom saver includes an easy-to-use twist-lock bracket that bolts onto your trailer's frame. With a typical transom saver, you'd have to bend down and secure the support to the bracket with a pin or a bolt. If you have a trailer that hauls a pontoon boat or one that has a hard-to-reach crossbeam, accessing the bracket can be a real pain.


But with this twist-lock bracket, all you have to do is insert the bottom end of the extended transom saver into the bracket and twist it to secure the support in place. This means that you don't have to crawl down beneath your boat to secure a transom saver.


Setting Up the Transom Saver

Once you have the trailer-end attachment of the support mounted, you can set up the support to prop up your boat's motor. The V-shaped end of the transom saver is what will cradle your boat's motor. It fits around the lower portion of the motor. To get started, engage the twist-lock connection on the transom saver and telescope the support out until it spans the area between the trailer-mounted bracket and your motor. There is a pronounced bend in the support that makes engaging the bracket much easier, especially if you have a hard-to-access crossbeam on the trailer. If your motor is equipped with a hydraulic tilt and/or trim, you will want to have it raised while positioning the transom saver.


Once the support is in the proper position, secure the transom length and lower the motor to ensure that there is enough pressure on the transom saver to hold it in place. Then hook the included rubber strap around the motor to hold it in place in the V-shaped cradle. This will help ensure that movement during travel won't cause the transom saver to slip or lose its position. Be mindful to remove the transom savor from the motor once you have arrived at your destination to prevent damage to the trailer, motor, or other equipment as you launch.

Video Transcript for Jif Marine Boat Accessories - Motor Support Bracket - 315-GAX Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Pontoon Boat Transom Saver. This support bracket protects the transom, motor, and steering components of your boat from shock and vibration while it's being towed. It attaches to your trailer frame and then extends out to support your boat's outboard motor. So, it's got the support right there. That's a rubberized support, so it really absorbs shock and vibration. This is great for pontoon boats or boat trailers with hard-to-access frames.The unit features a telescoping shaft, so that makes the unit a adjustable to match the distance between the trailer and your motor.

We're looking at a nice galvanized steel construction, so it's very strong and durable, and it does a great job at resisting rust and corrosion. It does come with a rubber strap with the hook. So, that goes around your motor, holds the motor to minimize movement. That strap connects to the bracketing here on this end.It's a pretty a fast and easy installation. It features this twisted portion down here.

This is twist-lock engagement for quick connection to the trailer frame. It can mount a few different ways. You can secure to the trailer frame by rotating the insertion shaft into the slotted hole in the rear crossmember of the boat trailer. If your trailer has a keel roller bracket, you can insert into the vertical adjustment slot, or you can use the included mounting bracket.So just to show you real quick how that works is you just do a half turn. So right now I'm just going to flip it over, and then this portion would slide into the elongated hole on that bracket and then it rotates into position, and that locks it in.

If you ever want to remove it from the bracket, you actually got to slide it back out. So, that's that twist-lock engagement that we're talking about earlier.It does come with detailed installation instructions, and when it comes to the telescoping length it does come with bolts and nuts to get everything secured, but each of these slide into each other and so you can actually take off the hardware, adjust it to where you need it for your application. It telescopes anywhere from 28" all the way out to 59", so you got a lot of room to work with in there. It should be a really great option for you. That's going to do it for today's look at the Pontoon Boat Transom Saver..

So far so good had to drill a hole in my trailer crossmember And the bracket that they gave me Have not driven anywhere with it on yet plan on driving 1200 miles Only reason for four star instead of five as I had to drill a hole in their bracket to match what I have on the trailer 572141

It appears to be very strong. I don't think there will be any problems with it breaking or bending. The reason I gave it three stars is because the kit came with nothing to mount the bracket to my trailer and the strap is too long for my 50 hp outboard. Not a huge deal but I had to make something up myself. 564118

Installation was straightforward and simple. Easily adjusted to fit my trailer setup and outboard. As always, delivery was fast. 552940


Comments

I am very satisfied with how the transom saver is working out. It is holding real well. Easy to attach and remove as I need to. It has never failed and it gives me peace of mind knowing that my engine is safely supported during transport.
