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

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.

                  Mounted my stainless steel whip VHF antenna on the side of the console of our boat. Very well made, design allows for adjusting the angle that the device travels when folding it down. The locking ratchet is solid and holds position in rough water.

                    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.

                          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.
