Riptide motors are built saltwater tough, with premium-grade marine alloys, including aluminum upper arms that are impervious to rust. Metals undergo a rigid multi-step cleaning process before being anodized or coated with a zinc dichromate armor plating. All components are then finished with a durable powdercoat paint for excellent protection against corrosion. This Latch and Door model features non-binding nylon inserts and anti-seize lubricant for a lifetime of trouble-free use. Motor removes quickly and easily for safe storage. Easily detaches for added convenience.
