Illinois bass pro Chad Morgenthaler has partnered with EPCO Products Inc., maker of the SNAPPER Remote Control Boat Latch, a device that allows virtually any boat and trailer combination to exercise the launch and retrieve efforts with minimal effort and with maximum security.
“It’s a really cool addition to all kinds of boats, but especially bass boats,” he said. “As someone who has left a boat on the ramp before, believe me, the SNAPPER captures your boat and locks it on in wind, current, any conditions you can encounter. It doesn’t matter if the ramp is deep or shallow, the SNAPPER will get the job done and it’s a lot cheaper than fiberglass work.”
The SNAPPER is easy to install and easy to operate. A simple push of the button on a remote control key fob is all it takes for the device to release or capture the boat. That’ll make any angler quicker off the ramp and faster to the fish, even when launching alone. You’ll never have to wade in again. Additionally, it’s theft proof, tested for impact resistance, and will secure up to 10,000 pounds.
“We’re happy to have Chad on the team,” Said EPCO Sales Manager Dwight Creger. “He’s worked diligently with us to design a pivot plate that will hold the SNAPPER Boat Latch in the correct position every time.”
“It’s a privilege to work with a longstanding pillar of the marine industry like EPCO,” Morgenthaler concluded. “The fact that they sought out my input is a real honor.”
The SNAPPER Boat Latch will be especially helpful for physically-impaired boaters. EPCO is a proud sponsor of Paralyzed Veterans of American and the National Bass Anglers Association.
