How to Mount a Lowrance Fish Finder

The Lowrance Fishfinder Mount is designed to replace the factory base of Lowrance Hook2 4 and 5 devices. This mount improves on the factory mount by allowing one-handed display adjustment. It features the LockNLoad Mounting System for maximum rigidity and versatility. The Lowrance Fishfinder Mount can be used with most other brands of mounting systems such as RAM Mounts and YakAttack MightyMounts. fishing Kayaks for sale

To mount your Lowrance fish finder, you must first connect it to a power source. The transducer provides SONAR information to the device, and it needs to be connected to an electrical power source. Because these devices are not battery operated, you should install a fuse box underneath the console so that you can easily access it in case of a power outage. Likewise, make sure to secure the wires at every twenty inches, so that they do not come loose.

A binnacle mount is another common option. It is best for lower-speed vessels under 30 feet. The mount should be installed with the transducer parallel to the transom and extend at least 1/8″ below the hull, which is the most common boat type. To avoid interference with steering and other navigating devices, you should place the mount in a location where it provides a comfortable viewing position. To attach a binnacle mount, you should use a template. You can drill the required holes on the mounting bracket.
