Dual Axis Ratchet Mount, Chromed Zamak

$35.99

Model # 1986827 | Mfg # 6060A

Standardized footprint for easy replaceability

These popular mounts are the standard for marine antennas, but since they have traditionally been made by different companies, they end up with different hole patterns and appearances. We've taken the nylon version and duplicated it in Zamak for inland users, and in stainless steel for ocean users. One can easily replace another if needed. Fits all standard 1" marine antennas. Features 4-way ratchet design.

  • Base measures 2 1/2" x 3 9/16"
  • Mount with 1/4" FH fasteners

              Comments about West Marine Dual Axis Ratchet Mount, Chromed Zamak:

              The only complaint I have is it was really difficult to unlock the second axis. My antenna mounts to the side of my boat so I needed to unlock the 2nd axis to flip base upwards. I ended up using my 20 volt impact gun and a crescent wrench to open it. It was even more difficult to retighten it to lock it in place. In fact, after several minutes and several attempts with the impact gun and wrench, I was finally able to get it JUST tight enough to hold it in place. It's a little lose and rattles some but it is locked in position. This is probably just an isolated incident but it did prevent a perfect installation which robbed me of a little pride in my workmanship.

              I am satisfied with the first axis (the one that locks the antenna either up for use or down for storage) as it is simple and fast to use.

              Service and delivery comments:

              I had a question which prompted me to call Customer Service. After answering my question the rep offered to take my order which made redeeming my 28 $10 reward certificates a breeze. She also applied a $50 off coupon for spending $300 or more. Thank you to her again!

              The FREE shipping was fast!!! I ordered a total of 5 items late on 2/9/15 and received my portable VHF radio on 2/11/15. The other 4 items (including an 8' antenna) came the next day. AWESOME JOB WEST MARINE!!!

                  I used this mount to replace thre cheap plastic broken one that came with the boat. The holes matched right up and installation was a breeze.

                      Most things at West Marine cost a fortune over the competitors, but this was actually priced fairly and is a quality product. Heavy duty, seems like it will last some time. Naturally, it didn't come with mounting hardware so I still had to go out to pick that up, had it come with quality screws, I would have given it 5 stars.

                                  Replaced some old plastic mounts with this type. Certainly added a much better look and they appear to be a lot more durable than the ones that were on the boat.
