Quick release brackets are a popular option to easily attach or remove the trolling motor from the boat. These brackets also make it easy for a thief to tamper with your trolling motor. By replacing the factory side screw of the bracket with an E-LOCK® the bracket and your motor are protected. Once installed the E-LOCK® prevents the bracket from sliding forward securing your motor to the bracket.

The E-LOCK® differs from a standard padlock because it sits flush to the bracket, making it impossible to cut off. Nothing is exposed. In addition, a padlock can damage the boat from the rattling and jarring that is created when your boat is underway. E-LOCK®’s smooth, circular design prevents any damage to the boat making it the best option available.

Product Features

  • Replaces factory site screw to prevent removal of bracket

  • Flush mounted to offer unparalleled security

  • Designed to eliminate scratches and damage a padlock causes from rattling around

  • Can be keyed to several other DuraSafe Locks for added one-key convenience

    The quick release brackets make trolling motor removal a piece of cake but that cuts both ways with security being a concern. I wanted to protect my $2,200 investment and this product was perfect for doing so. There support was responsive when I entered my address incorrectly the first time and revised it to make sure it was correct before mailing out. Made in the USA and family owned, a lot to like. Thanks!

    I have been looking for a convenient way to lock my MinnKota quick release bracket. My custom boat cover required the trolling motor be removed, so having the quick release bracket makes that job simple. The E-Lock is a brilliantly designed lock that keeps my expensive trolling motor safe and secure at all time. Super fast shipping and easy installation. Recommend for all your boating electronics.

    I purchased this for a MINN KOTA quick release MKA-16-03. I have an ULTERRA attached to the quick release and this lock will not fit inbetween the trolling motor and boat surface. Its a very nice lock and i wish it had worked. Even though this did not fit, after advertising that it does, they would not pay for the return shipping.

    A great solution to the problem of quick release Power Drive brackets on Minn Kota. I have to remove the unit from time to time but leave in on in an most of the summer. Easy to install in minutes, looks good and now it’s safe. Highly recommend.
