Video Transcript for BoatBuckle Boat Accessories - Fishing Rod Storage - IMF15435 Review

Today we're going to review part number IMF15435. This is the BoatBuckle Rod Hold-Down PLUS System. This is a hold-down system that will keep as many as eight fishing rods handy and secure on your boat's deck or gunwale with this rod tie-down kit. This rod tie-down kit will protect your fishing rods from damage and from going overboard. They have a sturdy polyester strap, with a hook and loop closure, and a foam-molded insert, which will keep your fishing rods in place. The straps will loop around the foam insert, and hook together.

You can slide up to four handles on this side and then four handles from this side. When they're across from each other, the tips of your fishing rods would fit in to the smaller holes on top. So, you'll be able to hold four rods facing that way and four rods facing the other way; a total of eight rods. The polyester webbing is seatbelt quality polyester webbing. It does have a sure-grip rubber coated release handle; makes it easy to grip and control with one hand, and just again to show you this foam insert, basically there's the four larger holes, for the handles of them fishing rods; and up here, the smaller holes are split so you could lay in the tip of your fishing rod.

The way this would be installed is it comes with the mounting hardware. Each one of these hold down systems come with four plastic mounting grommets and the four screws. Basically, what you would do, is you would slide these, there's a little slot here and then there's a screw right here. We'd push this into the slot and force it until this hole would line up there. Then once it's inside, you would drill a pilot hole down through there to wherever you're going to mount it and that would keep it when there's four of them, one for each hole.

Then that would keep it mounted and then you put your fishing rods in, close the hook and loop, and just tighten it down. Again, it has the capacity of carrying eight fishing rods with reels. I'll give you the dimensions on this. The width is going to be 2-inches wide and the overall length is 11 inches. This part does come with a one year limited warranty and that should do it for part number IMF15435..

Very durable yet light weight. I have had these on my power drifter and they still hold up good even after having them for 2 years. I like this system cause I can simply secure them and not worry about them flying out of the boat or getting in the way of clients stepping on the rods. It really made more room in the boat to free up floor space not to mention there's no hard plastic on these so they don't rub or wear on the rod blanks. Highly recommend these for your boat. You will not be disappointed.


I have used these for years in our small fishing boat. Just added them to our blazer river boat to hold our salmon and steelhead rods. These rod holders work great. holds the rods where you put them. This is my third set of them. Had them mounted in the boat the same day I received them



Got them today. They seem like they’ll work great for my jet boat. Looking forward to installing them.


Installed in my bass buggy pontoon boat since there were no fishing rod holders designed into the boat. The holders were easy to install, securely holds the rods in place, and are easy to use. Good quality material.

The covers have been exposed to the elements and does not show any fading or deterioration. The boatbuckel rod holder gets lots of use and is starting to show some wear. However the level of wear is expected and is still in overall good condition. I expect to get several more years out of it before needed to replace.

I purchased these Boat Buckles to use as rod holders for the top of my SUV. After a year of using them i wouldn't change a thing. Not only do they hold down the rods securely enough to drive on the highway with them, but they hold enough rods that i can transport my friends rods as well.

I'm starting a project boat, and will most likely include these on the deck for when im moving to my secret fishing spots.


I have bought 2 sets of these one I put one in my boat. The other I put in my ice fishing rod holder box. I modified it slightly and glued it in the Ice rod box. These buckles protect the poles way better than anything supplied with an ice fishing rod holder box. Also the price is more than worth the value I highly recommend!!


I do mostly fly fishing and run a guide service. I have been looking for a way to mount rod holders in my boat. I don't have a lot of room and when I saw the Boat Buckle rod holder I decided to give it a try. Great product and perfect for my boat and holding my fly rods.

The boat buckle is perfect Im very happy with the product.

The product has held up well. It holds the rods secure. You can put the product where it doesn't take up a lot of space. It is difficult to get more than 3 rods in the Boatbuckle.


mounted on the inside lid of dock box. They are too flimsey. Not a good choice for that.


Just an awesome company to do business with. Excellent thanks all the way around if you're wanting old School quality with today's technologies buy the rod rack they sale. Honestly. Randl Mc


These boat buddies worked great. Mounted horizontally on a jon boat. Middle and back seat. Hardware worked like a charm. Very pleased so far.


I’ve been use it for a while holding up good


Great transaction, good shipping and the product I obtained is what I was expecting. Great communication and tracking of the shipping. Thank you for the wonderful experience.


Very nice and secure rod holder. I like the hidden fasteners on these better than the Rod Saver brand that these are replacing.


Excellent product to keep rods protected and stored neatly


Appears to be a good product. Easy to install. Installation hardware included. I have not had the item long enough to rate quality or endurance.


Fast service! Great place to do business with.


i havenot used the rod holders yet.


Holds Rods in place. Dont have to worry about them flying out of the boat. Great product Very Happy with them. Had them now for a year, so far so good.

Thanks, the products are still working Great in fact one of the motivating factor of buying these from you was the low price you sell them for in fact Im going to order some of the same to outfit another boat i bought for my Fishing Guide Service. Thanks again for checking in with me really appreciate it.

Great product and excellent service. They shipped promptly. Looking forward to buying from them again.


Rod holder fits my boat just right. I am very pleased.


Easy to install and good quality

After a year in service, the bucket works as designed. Showing some wear and tear but will last for several more years.

Just what I was looking for. Fast shipping!


Good product. Well made. Keeps my rods organized and untangled.


Works great

Ask the Experts about this BoatBuckle Fishing Rod Holders

  • Type of Mounting Hardware Included with BoatBuckle Verticle Rod Hold-Down Styem
    The hardware included with the BoatBuckle Vertical Rod Hold-Down PLUS System # IMF15435 that you referenced consists of self-tapping stainless steel black finished screws, so you should not have an issue with corrosion. As long as everything is properly installed, there is no particular reason an aluminum rivet couldn't be used in the screw's place. This shouldn't be necessary though since the included screws are indeed stainless steel. I have attached an installation video for this system...

  • Does the BoatBuckle Hold Down # IMF15435 Come with 2 Foam Pads
    Each BoatBuckle Verticle Rod Hold-Down # IMF15435 comes with two foam closures to secure your rods down. So if you buy one BoatBuckle Hold Down, you will have two foam pads to secure up to 8 rods. You will not need to buy two BoatBuckle Hold Downs for one application. I attached a review video of the Hold Downs you may want to check out.

  • Can The BoatBuckle Fishing Rod Holder Be Cut Down To Size
    It is possible to cut down the BoatBuckle Vertical Rod Hold-Down PLUS System part # IMF15435 to fit the space that you want to mount them in but the strap that holds the rods into the foam piece will not be able to properly fasten so I do not recommend it. The foam piece of the holder measures 11 inches long by 2 inches wide.

  • What is Diameter of Larger Holes of BoatBuckle Vertical Rod Hold-Down PLUS System
    The diameter of the larger holes of the BoatBuckle Vertical Rod Hold-Down PLUS System # IMF15435 that you referenced is 1 inch.

  • BoatBuckle Fishing Rod Carriers for Use on 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    The BoatBuckle Rod Hold-Down PLUS System # IMF15435 is intended for deck- or gunwale-mounting but it absolutely could be installed, using appropriate alternate hardware you'll supply, to other surfaces such as the inside of a camper shell. You'll just need to source sutable hardware for the particular material at the installation point (metal vs. fiberglass). We also offer the RodBunk Deluxe Fishing Rod Carrying System for Trucks # IMF17727 which is shown in the linked video.

  • Should BoatBuckle Vertical Rod Hold-Down be Used on Vehicle
    The BoatBuckle Vertical Rod Hold-Down PLUS System # IMF15435 is not designed to go on top of a car, it is meant to be mounted inside a boat so there really is no telling how it might hold up and I would not recommend going this route. It sounds like you have a roof rack on top of your 1995 Honda Civic and instead of using this I strongly recommend using the Rhino-Rack Ski and Fishing Rod Carrier # RR572, which holds up to 4 fishing rods. This will clamp onto your roof rack's cross bars...
