Good for dropping fenders

Good addition for putting bumpers off the front rail and it can be set up in no time flat.

Ordered two for wood rails and two regular. After looking at the strap material decided not to put them on my newly finished wood rails. I think they would be too abrasive. One of the twist lock snaps broke off in my hand during installation. The idea is grand but the method of attachment has a lot to be desired, particularly strength. I removed them and went back to tying until I can find a better way to afix them to my boat.

          I wanted some way to make fender handling easier on my wife. This allows for quick adjustments and holds securely. They are well made. There is a bit of a trick to getting them on and off, but once you have done it, it is easy enough.

              Comments about Taylor Made Tidy-Ups Fender Adjusters:

              I had bought some Big B bumpers with ropes. I needed a device that would make it quick and easy to use bumpers. These are quick, but poor design breaks easy at the snaps. for $19 bucks, you would expect more. Do not waste your money !
