Kollar - Spokane, Washington
just bought my first boat and had been searching for a good transom saver for
my 90 HP Mercury. After searching all around, I stumbled upon the
Lock-N-Haul. Scared that it would not work with my engine, I sent some photos
to the number on the website and within no time I had an answer. It was even
around 10 at night. What great customer service! After setting it up, I went
out for the first time and it was awesome! The engine did not more at all! I
felt so confident trailering the boat and going over those rough back roads.
I am a customer for life and will recommend to all my friends that have

best thing I can say about the Lock-N-Haul – the boat and motor become
ONE! There is absolutely no movement of my motor when stowed with the
Lock-N-Haul. That is, of course, unless the boat is moving!"

brother and I were rushing to get on the water for a half day to practice for
a local tournament. We forgot to remove our
"Lock-n-Haul". We made our 8 mile run @ 68 MPH to the
practice area! When I made my first cast from the
"back-of-the-boat" I heard something knocking, it was the
Lock-n-Haul, this is one tough product!! The only thing we had lost was
one of the black end caps (Lower Unit) end!!

you again for the Lock-n-Haul, it is simply awesome!It's given me one less thing to worry about
while trailering on Louisiana's missile tested roads. Two of the guys on our
trip are buying one and the third is too old school toknow better and too tight!p.s. I love that I don't have to bring it
all the way to the truck and it fits in either of my back deck
compartments..... Handy !
Pinsonat - Baton Rouge, Louisiana
wanted to let you all know that after a couple fairly long drives on fishing
trips my new Lock-N-Haul has performed perfectly.My motor would be turned at least half way
on every trip I took on our good backroads here in Missouri, but since the
Lock-N-Haul the motor doesn't move AT ALL. Thanks for a great product.
Garrison - Louisiana, Missouri
just came back from a tournament in Detroit and that was the ultimate test on
the Lock-n-Haul.They have the biggest
potholes I have ever seen up there and my engine was always safe and never
rocked back and forth.One of the
best things about it is how small it is, you can easily store it in your back
compartment and you don’t have to carry around a huge piece of metal and put
it in your truck.It costs less than
others on the market and I never had any doubt it would fit my engine.I recommend them to everyone no matter what
size or brand engine they have.”
Martin -FLW Tour Professional - New Hope, Alabama
can say that the Lock-n-Haul is the best product I’ve used to date in
securing your motor. No more motor movement while travelling, no more damaged
or scratched gearboxes from other brace-type products. Easy and convenient to
stow away and attach.
Hawman - SA Bass Professional-
Boksburg, South Africa
got my unit in the mail last week. LOVE IT!!!!! The motor has never been this
solid. I drive some bumpy roads everyday, well 5 days a week to fish and this
will save my boat motor a lot of banging around.I have been asked about the unit everyday
at the launch, many good responses, I think I'm going to have to carry some
contact info with me from now on as I getting tired of writing down the info
on a pad of paper for people.Thanks
for a great product!
Carlson - Bay City, Michigan
- I just wanted to drop you a line. Obviously I haven't gotten to use the
product that much, but I can tell you it's exactly what I needed. I had been
using the My-Wedge for years, however I winter fish a lot. When it's cold the
darn thing contracts, and sometimes it takes 2 of us real big boys to get the
thing off of the trim rod. I've been so worried about damaging the trim rod
or any of the seals around it getting that darn thing off in the morning.
Well, the Lock-n-Haul came, I adjusted it to line up with the Yamaha, and
bam... it's as easy as trimming up and or down the motor, thats it! Good
deal, and awesome idea my man, I hope you make millions... something so
simplistic, but yet so darn practical! "

Lock-n-Haul is a great product! It is easy to take on or off and holds my
YAMAHA SHO 250 solid rolling down the highway. I store it in the in the rear
compartment of my new Legend making it an easy grab to get ready to roll. The
Lock-n-Haul is light weight and takes up basically no space. It is definitely
a must have in my book!
Ashmore, Bassmaster Elite Series Professional - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma
my boat dealer (Boats Unlimited in Baton Rouge) made it easy for me. Sense
they sell them now, she let me take one to try on my boat. 2006 Yamaha 90
4-stroke, it doesn't have the ideal pockets on the bracket to sit in but, it
does work. After a 200 mile round trip on bad South Louisiana roads yesterday
it stayed in place. After seeing the difference it makes I would say anyone
using a traditional transom saver attached to the trailer would be better off
not using anything at all. All the shaking truly does come from the trailer.
Seeing is believing!

my Lock-n-Haul today, thank you Jim it’s a marvelous product and I will let
all my friends here in Aussie know about your product. Regards

a Yamaha 250 on a Ranger 521. Ordered your lock and haul a couple weeks back
and all I can say is thanks. This is much better than the transom saver that
there is not even a fair comparison. Please let me know if there is
anything I can do to help you promote this product. Again Thanks Don

Lock-n-Haul works perfectly on all outboards. It is a very simple, functional
device that completely stabilizes the motor."

wanted to take a minute and give a special thanks to Jim with Lock-n-haul
transom savers. He helped on my recent group trip and is a stellar
individual. Most importantly, his product is incredible. First, let me say
that I am not sponsored by Jim and paid retail for my Lock-n-Haul. I have
been using a regular transom bar and let me tell you, I wish I had switched
sooner. The problem with a standard bar is that it puts a lot of stress on
your lower unit and they cause the paint to fail (my pet peeve) which only
gets worse over time. The Lock-n-haul is lightweight, easy to use, and won't
stress the lower unit or ruin the paint on your motor. For around $60 I
highly recommend you get one!!! Bassin Dave - Professional Bass Fishing

just got back to Nebraska and installed a custom pin to use your Lock-n-Haul
device as you suggested. I must say I am extremely pleased with its design.
It works very well with the pin I made.I purchased a 5/8" pin and used a cap nut on one side and a
removable pin on the other. It’s just an axel pin I purchased at the Academy
sports store. It can be removed as easy as the Lock-n-Haul but it’s the
second to last pin hole on the motor so I might just leave it installed. I
don’t think it will affect the performance of the motor. If I find it does, I
will remove it and keep it with the the Lock-n-Haul. Thank you for
designing such a good product. After the installation, I noticed a major decline
in trailer noise. The motor also remains stationary with no movement like the
old saver I used before. It is so much easier to install and remove - good
job! In addition, thank you for meeting me at Bass Pro as it saved a few
dollars on shipping. The Lock-n-Haul is an extremely good design, made of
good materials and is very reasonably priced. I am so pleased with its
design, I will be personally advertizing your product to other boaters with
Williams - Omaha, Nebraska
Lock-n-Haul device is the best piece of equipment I've used to lock my
motor down for traveling. It's light and small enough to fit in the back
compartment of my boat while fishing. In the past, I've had to use 3
& 4 foot long motor toters which are long & bulky and I had to always
store these in my vehicle because they could fit in any of my boat's
compartments. The motor toter also scars your lower unit and removes the
paint. I'm a guide on Lake Fork and everyone who has seen my Lock-n-Haul
device has been impressed."
Bryson - Professional Fishing Guide - Lake Fork, Texas
own an Evinrude 225 H.O E-TEC. I have always had problems with it
turning or “falling over” and resting on the steering hydraulics’ using the
factory engine tilt lock while trailering my boat. I have seen PVC
clips that snap onto the steering hydraulic rods, but these again place
stress on this expensive system which I was trying to avoid. My boat
dealer said Evinrude does not recommend using the bar type transom savers
because it places too much pressure on the engine’s lower unit. I was
stuck with my motor falling over and no solution. That was until I purchased
your Lock-n-haul unit a year ago and it solved all my problems. There
is no stress on my hydraulics’ and it drastically cuts down on the time
needed to ready my boat to launch or trailer. It is extremely easy to
install and remove and it is very small and compact and stores just about
anywhere. Thanks you very much for inventing a better mouse
Martens - Bonaire, Georgia
my Lock-n-Haul over the winter and finally have been able to use it the past
6 weeks. Love it and it stays put when trailering and we have some
pretty rough roads up here in Ohio. It's about time somebody desigend
something for Yamaha motors that works the right way"
Thomae - Richwood, Ohio
product Jim. I use it on a 250 ProXS and it handles the gnarly roads, RR
tracks, etc. Takes maybe 5 mins to set up - and I like the strength and small
size. BTW my old school last 'motor toter' bounced off the trailer connection
(stayed on motor) and jacked the motor when the bracket end hit the road and
blew out the main ram top bracket and seals. Do the math."
Matherne - Houston, Texas
product, worked great, I can get rid of my 4.5' transom saver bar. Probably
gonna order another one for back up"
Kinchlow - Suffolk, Virginia
love the Lock-n-Haul. Holds motor very steady during travel, no
shaking, no movement. Extremely light weight and conveniently small to
Tran - Omaha, Nebraska
spending way too much time trying to find a support for my Mercury 115
Optimax and trying to make something myself, I came across the
Lock-n-Haul. This is one of those products that is simple yet works
perfectly. It took about 2 minutes to adjust for my application and has
worked flawlessly ever since."
Shea - Long Beach, California
nice product.. Have been using with my Ranger 520 and Yamaha 225 HPDI for a
couple of months. I used the larger white one sold by one of your competitors
for about a year but didn't like how it would not clear the mounting location
on a Yamaha. Your product solves this issue."
Denton - Clayton, North Carolina
you for the upgrades to my Lock-n-Haul and the clear concise instructions on
how to install them. This unit works like a charm and does just what it
was designed to do. I am very happy with your product and the
upgrades that were sent free of charge. Good luck to you, Jim and those
who provided input to make this product even a greater investment."
Obreiter - Toledo, Ohio
being an owner of Ranger Z-Series Boats with their built in Jack Plates and
then along with the extra 8” plate I have mounted I love your Lock-n-Haul.
The typical transom saver just does not work well with the length required to
get down to the trailer & then where do you store it when removed. Your
system is not only easy to mount providing protection, but when I remove it I
can store it anywhere. Love the size & the way it works on my Etec 250
HO!!! Thanks for making a great & user friendly product."
Jasper - Pantego, Texas
Lock-n-Haul for my 01 225 Evinrude. Product works great, used to use the
factory brace, but motor kept tilting. Lock-n-Haul keeps it from tilting side
to side and is very sturdy. I would absolutely recommend this device."
Grabo - Burnt Hills, New York
as advertised and money well spent. I would absolutely recommend this
Montgomery - Odon, Indiana
I am quite impressed with the Lock-n-Haul. I have used it for almost 2 months
and my motor has never been so secure. The motor doesn't shake, rattle or
turn. It is an outstanding product."
Duval - Shrewsbury, Massachusetts
switched from a standard transom saver to a lock-n-haul and I’m VERY
impressed with this device. It really locks the motor down and stops all
sideways movement. I would 100% recommend this product! Both friends and my
mechanic were impressed and are also looking to purchase one for their
Henry - Ontario, Canada
am completely satisfied with my unit and wanted to know if you had any
decals, etc. to put on my boat windshield and/or my GMC Yukon ? My boat is a
21 TRX Triton with a 250 mercury.”
Godwin - Shreveport, Louisiana
think the Lock-n-Haul is an excellent design. With its small size but very
strong structure its easy to handle and does not take up hardly any space. I
broke two transom savers before switching the the Lock n Haul and have not
had one issue with and its nice that my lower unit is no longer taking all of
the road shock from the trailer."
Sauble - Willow Park, Texas
purchased the Lock-n-Haul about four weeks ago. Since then I have towed the
boat over 1500 miles and the lock-n-haul works great. I don't have to worry
about the motor or steering components and it's so much easier to use than
the old motor toter products available. Great product and I will continue to
recommend it to others."
Phillips - Columbia, South Carolina
Lock-n-Haul is a well thought out and functional device. I was a little
sceptical about how it "locks" the engine to boat but after
watching the engine through the rear view mirror while towing, I understood.
When hitting bumps or holes in the road and boat bounces, the engine doesn't
move at all in relation to the boat as with the standard transom saver. It's
"locked" in place and doesn't vibrate, wobble, or wiggle. And,
that's a good thing."
Lehmann - Richardson, Texas
a great product to secure my Yamaha. Does the job in seconds....just as
Stamos - Cupertino, California
am not sure what product you are using, but you need to check out the custom
transom saver product from "Lock-n-Haul"! I picked up one of these
and love it! It is very simple to put on and remove and it will not damage
your motor or boat. I will never go back to a traditional transom saver
again. This unit also absorbs all of the shock and vibration from normal
travel instead of having your lower unit risk potential damage from
traditional transom savers! Check out http://www.locknhaul.com"
Gordon - Emcee Oakley Big Bass Tour -Grapevine, Texas
absolutely LOVE using the Lock-N-Haul. It makes my HPDI sit still on
these bumpy roads here in Western North Carolina. No more pulling
over to straighten the motor up, like with the old style transom saver."
Stewart - Asheville, North Carolina
was by far one of the best purchases I have made for my boat. My engine would
move from side to side even with the transom saver that came with my boat. It
was also a hassle having to worry about storing the old transom saver inside
my Yukon. The Lock-n-Haul is compact enough I can store it in one of
the compartments in the boat. The roads are not the most
forgiving in some parts of Texas but with this product you can rest assured
your engine will stay in place and absorb anything the road brings you.
Purchase this in confidence."
Milam - Lewisville, Texas
saw your booth at the Arlington Convention Center back in January. I told you
then that I didn't have a boat, but that I might be buying a friend one.
That's what this is for. The Lock-n-Haul beats the heck out of all of
the other transom savers on the market as far as ease of use and
Johnson - Fort Worth, Texas
have been using the Lock-N-Haul device for over 2 years now and love it! It
is so convenient, light weight and easy to stow that I couldn't imagine going
back to the old style transom saver. I also like the fact that going down the
road I'm not watching my engine bouncing all over the place wearing out my
bushings and loosening my transom bolts. I'm a sold customer!"
Caldwell - Plantersville, Texas
only is the lock-n-haul effective and does what it claims to do, but the
convenience of putting it on and taking it off is worth the price
alone. I am glad I am not pulling and tugging on my old transom saver
to release it from my lower unit anymore as I would get road grime and grease
all over my hands. I like how it stores right in my boat."
Romaguera - Mansfield, Texas
had the Lock-n-Haul for short while but seems to be working fine. The
price was great compared to the other brands."
