Flush Mount Pole Holders clean up any skiff

Push poles have always presented challenges to anglers in skiffs. While the tool is effective for maneuvering in shallow water, the upright prongs used to stow it in transit often get in the way when fishing and can be easily damaged. Flush Mount Pole Holders from Accon Marine provide secure storage, then retract into the deck when not required.

Made from cast 316 stainless steel and UV-resistant, glass-filled nylon, the 708 series Flush Mount Pole Holder is built to last. The system works best with three units, with the middle one facing opposite the others. This securely holds stowed poles 27mm off the deck, eliminating the need for riser shims. When off duty, the hardware simply pushes down straight into the deck, protected from damage.

Installation is easy and requires only basic tools. After covering the mounting location with painter's tape to protect the boat surface, use the supplied template to outline the holder with a pen. Drill out the corners of the cut-out area, then use a jigsaw to finish the opening.

Check the fit by placing the pole holder into the cut-out, while marking the location for its mounting bolt holes. Drill out the bolt holes, remove the painter's tape, and carefully lower the pole holder into position, securing it with four #10 stainless bolts, stainless washers and nylon-filled stainless lock nuts. An optional waterproofing cup protects against water intrusion.

Accon Marine's 708 Flush Mount Pole Holder comes in both ring-style and clip-style models. For locations where cut-outs may not be possible, Accon Marine offers the innovative 710 Folding Push Pole Holder for surface mount applications. Also made from sturdy 316 stainless and UV-resistant, glass-filled nylon, it folds flat when not in use and installs with only three #10 screws.
