There are two styles of Bow Mount Locks.
The first style replaces the factory knob in the mount. The lock allows you to make height adjustments as you normally would but with the turn of a key the mount is locked securing the motor inside. This lock allows you to remove and reinstall the motor for storage and repairs easily without special tools.
These models include:
MKA-EDGE Fits Minn Kota® Models Edge, Riptide Edge & Pontoon Hand Control Mount
MG21 Fits MotorGuide® Models x3 & x5 Fresh and Salt Water
MKA-RIP Fits Minn Kota® Riptide SC w/ latch & door, Riptide SM w/ latch & door
GHOST Fits Lowrance® Ghost
The second style is a unique locking knob that replaces the single cap screw that allows you to remove the motor from the mount. It adds security for your trolling motors while you are away from the boat and allows you to remove and reinstall the motor for storage and repairs easily without special tools.
These models include:
MKA-ULTREX Fits Minn Kota® Ultrex
MKA-FORTREX Fits Minn Kota® Fortrex, Riptide Fortrex

Gives me some piece of mind in keeping my trolling motor secure. Would definitely recommend to others.
The concept is notable, but execution needs work. At $50 I expected more. A small Philips screwdriver bent at the tip puts a dumb thief in business. No lock is 100%… I’ll give this Durasafe Ultrex lock 3stars... We’re talking about a $3,000 trolling motor… I’d spend more for a better system that will protect my motor while in a hotel room for the night. For a quick stop at a burger joint it could help, but give the thieves more time than that and your motor is gone. One step above a cable… I’ll stick with my U-lock for the night….
I will sleep better at fishing lakes away from home knowing electronics n trolling motor should be protected during my stay
Can you get replacement keys for these???
Added piece of mind to protect my expensive equipment. Great products and convenience of "one key for all" on multiple locks. I have them on my Ultrex, graphs and gimbal mounts. These locks are perfect for a tournament fisherman who travels across the country and super easy to install ! I love the fact that they are made in the USA ! Love my Durasafe locks
