ShadeFin™ Telescopic Rod Holder Mount
Wherever you are onboard, ShadeFin can follow! The Telescopic Rod Holder Accessory for ShadeFin – a versatile attachment option that inserts into standard gunnel rod holders for portable, adjustable boat shade. Made from high-quality, lightweight anodized aluminum, the Telescopic Rod Holder Accessory extends from 42" to 67" tall – elevating ShadeFin over the deck for boaters to comfortably stand underneath. For boaters at the dock, sandbar, or in the water, the Telescopic Rod Holder Accessory can also be adjusted to position ShadeFin over the side of the boat – keeping you protected from the sun.
As the sun changes position, the angle and height of this accessory can easily be adjusted at two points along its body – the bottom joint and the throw latch. Toward the base, the bottom joint features a Sure-Grip Knob and Pull Pin Lock that enables the adjustment of the accessory's upward angle. The throw latch half-way up the body is used to adjust the height and 360° rotation of the ShadeFin. If using this accessory with the Adjustable Rod Holder Mount, the angle of ShadeFin can also be adjusted from the Sure-Grip Knob at the top.
To use the Telescopic Rod Holder Accessory, simply insert the solid gimbal butt into any standard rod holder on the gunnel, remove the Pull-Pin, adjust the upward angle using the Sure-Grip Knob at the bottom joint to the desired 0°, 15°, or 30°, and reinstall the Pull Pin. Then, at the top, simply insert the Fixed or Adjustable Rod Holder Mount into the opening. The mount will secure in place when its gimbal butt seats into the Accessory gimbal pin. Then attach ShadeFin into the Mount, as directed in the Instruction Manual, and deploy. Use the throw latch to adjust the ShadeFin height and horizontal rotation.
