Comments about Clamp on Grouper Anodes:
Want to eliminate electrolysis on your outdrive? Then, this product is for you! Boats that are berthed in salt water conduct electronic currents that are in salt water and these currents erode metals that touch the water. This product absorbs those electrolytes and keeps them away from other base metals. As time passes, this device becomes smaller and smaller as it is eaten away so you know it works.Can you picture your outdrive being eaten away in this fashion? Cheap insurance for a reasonable price.....get it now!
Perfect for the end of a season. When there is only a couple of weeks left in the year. You don't have to haul the boat to be protected. Just clip this bad boy on and you are good to go a couple more weeks.
What an amazing product - so simple and works great!
I have used this for at least 5 years. It used to last until the fish melted to about three inches long still attached to the cable. I just returned one to the store with the fish almost the original length and width but with three of the four cable strands disattached waiting for the fourth to let go. It appears the manufacturing process has changed in the last two years by moving the cable attachment outwards to the side as opposed to being in the core. The life expectancy is therefore reduced by at least 50% due to the failed cable connection.BUY IT BUT BE AWARE.
