The Scotty Gimbal Mount with Gear Head Adapter has a quick and easy drop and lock system transforming the existing Gimbal Mount on your watercraft into a fully adjustable mounting point for post mounted Scotty rod holders and accessories. Complete with the revolutionary Scotty 428 Gear Head, this system allows you to quickly change rod holder positions with a simple “twist”. You can use your favorite, fully adjustable Scotty rod holder and adjust it to any vertical or horizontal position without having to drill permanent mounting holes. Light weight, yet incredibly strong, the Scotty Gimbal Mount with Gear Head Adapter is manufactured with engineering grade composite materials.
The 435 is a great gimball mount drops right in my Ocean Kayak Trident and doesn't rotate. Offers a secure adjustable platform for any Scotty Mount.
I replaced the old Scotty 253 gimbal mounts on my Trident with these. The deeper notches and two rubber fit discs really provides a tighter and more secure fit. These mounts are not going anywhere should you accidently hit them with your paddle. The twist lock on the gear head works great, it makes for a quick install or removal of the rod holder. I got two of these for what other retailers charge for one...thanks ACK!
