Split and sliding side mounts

Extend your possibilitites

Our stand-offs stand out

Our unique stand-off type mounts either slide over the end of tubing or clamp on by opening the hinged jaw. Originally designed for mounting solar panels, these mounts dramatically increase the possibilities for updating and adding all kinds of attachments to dodgers, biminis, davits and rails.

No disassembly required with our hinged slide mount.

Unlike sliding side mounts, which must slip over the end of a tube, split jaw mounts can attach anywhere, including on frame bends, without disconnecting frame structures. This makes additions, installations, removal for storage and upgrades a breeze – even midseason.

Our sliding side mounts are less obtrusive than our split mounts (and a little easier on the pocketbook). Great for new builds or removable installations.

Outstanding product. We mounted our solar panels to Bimini frame and also created strapless Bimini and dodger. This is our second order and we are extremely pleased with the products and service

Excellent product, a little pricey but they have it. Only downside was the import duty and taxes are not done at checkout so be prepared to pay for this.

This worked perfect for attaching to our rail. We attached a stainless steel flag pole to it.

Great product.

used the fittings to install a storage box between my dinghy davits – all the fittings worked perfectly – I did drill out the set screws and installed bolts to prevent failure
