All King Pin brackets are equipped with a proprietary, integrated pole lock. Just flip the lever to secure the pole in the bracket. There is no maintenance required and no loose parts that can fall in the water.
King Pin offers a convenient anchoring system for a quick way to hold your boat in position in shallow water without heavy anchors and wet, cumbersome ropes. King Pin is ideal for precision bait presentations, especially in windy or high-current conditions. With no power, switches or wires, this system is the perfect complement or alternative to power-actuated pole anchors. Available in bow- or transom-mount with a wide range of anchor pole selections.
For anglers who have a power-operated pole anchor on the transom, King Pin provides a cost-effective solution for the boat-swing that is inherent with a single, rear-anchoring point. One offset anchor point on the transom and a point on the bow will stop the swing and keep you off the trolling motor and your bait in the strike zone.
A camouflaged King Pin version is perfect for the serious waterfowl hunter or the back-country angler. Holding your boat in a stable position is absolutely necessary for an accurate shot as you follow the movements of your prey. Using a pole anchor adds boat stability that conventional anchors can’t match.
King Pin’s two-piece poles feature a pool-cue-style stainless steel butt collar for quick breakdown and easy storage or transport. The poles are constructed of 3/4" diameter, high-impact fiberglass and equipped with molded foam grips and stainless steel tips for easy bottom penetration. Rubber storage clips with mounting screws are included. (8 ft., single-piece pole also available.)
With a quick pull of the plunger pin and a short twist, the King Pin bracket can be removed leaving only the mounting plate for a clean, obstacle-free deck. Includes mounting hardware and integrated O-rings, eliminating the need for sealant. Available in 3" or 6" rise for safe and easy gunnel clearance and your choice of clear anodized or black powder coat finish.
