Trolling motor accessories company, ProControll, has come up with a solution for storing hand operated trolling motors popular with anglers.
Although trolling motors are best stored upright to avoid damage to the shaft and to take up less space, this can prove difficult because all the weight is in the bottom and the skeg prevents it from resting flat on the floor.
But not any more, says ProControll. The US manufacturer has introduced the EZStand, a space-saving device designed specifically to keep the motor upright, stable and safe.
The EZStand has a small footprint, approximately 12 inches by 12 inches, which allows it to fit anywhere from the corner of a closet to an out-of-the-way place in the garage.
The stand is made from strong and durable nylon and is designed so the trolling motor’s skeg fits into a slot to help secure the motor, which is itself cradled solidly above in the stand’s v-shaped base.
The positioning of the motor also protects the prop by keeping it off the ground. A stainless steel ‘fork’ rises vertically from the base to support the motor’s shaft.
The EZStand comes ready to use right out of the box. At its retail price of around $25, the innovative product is a small investment to make for taking care of a vital and valuable piece of fishing equipment.
