WEST MARINE
Dual Axis Ratchet Mount, Heavy-Duty Stainless Steel

$49.99

In stock online.
Model # 1986868 | Mfg # 113C

Product Description

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, Heavy-Duty Stainless Steel:

    Product description states, . "We've taken the nylon version and duplicated it" No so. The holes do not match that of the nylon mounts so I had to elongate the mounting holes already on my boat. What a pain.

        Best Uses

          Comments about West Marine Dual Axis Ratchet Mount, Heavy-Duty Stainless Steel:

          This unit offers great promise but poor execution. As a result the antenna handle will work itself loose during rough seas.
          We go off-shore a lot. Our boat runs 200-300 hours a year and unless it's calm the antenna is prone to fall.

          West Marine makes good stuff so I'm sure someone will rework this item.

            mounting bracket was very nice, heavy duty and built strong. mounting was easy. Only problem is the lever needs to be tightened in choppy seas. antenna kept falling down. once tightened, problem solved. Very nice.

                Antenna Mount, vertical adj. caution

                Pros

                • Strong Signal

                Cons

                • Hardware fitment
                • Vertical adjustment

                Best Uses

                • Surface Mount

                Comments about West Marine Dual Axis Ratchet Mount, Heavy-Duty Stainless Steel:

                Use caution if trying to use the vertical adjustment bolt. The Counterbore for the Stainless Steel Nyloc hex nut is in a deep Counterbore which does not allow proper wrench (or Socket) fitment or even a proper washer placement. Remember that Stainless Steel is typically soft and it is very easy to strip or round the edges of this nut thus not allowing adjustment. Once this nut is stripped it is very difficult to remove and replace this nut. Also, this is a West Marine product so the surface mounting bolt pattern does NOT match other manufacturers; it is close, but will not interchange.
