      • Flanging Short Tubes

      Comments about Moeller Marine Flanging Tools:

      This flanging tool will work great for tubes less than 3 inches long, however if you expect to flange a 3 1/2 inch tube, you will have to visit a hardware store to purchase a longer bolt. This is not a big deal if you know ahead of time.

      Comments about Moeller Marine Flanging Tools:

      I bought your flange tool and drain tube installation kits (from this website) to install in my aluminum fishing boat.

      Someone around there or at the manufacturer needs to address a few issues with these products.

      I'm giving you the feedback in hopes of sparing other buyers the frustrations I experienced, as follows:

      1) The instructions show the bolt threaded all the way to the end. But what came in the package was a partially threaded carriage bolt. The threads stopped about an inch too short. I had to go to the hardware store and buy another bolt AND washers just in case the bolt snapped during installation and I had to use the carriage bolt provided. Given the high price of your product, that extra gas, time and expense was rather annoying.

      2) The instructions in your drain tube kit do not match the instructions in your flange tool kit. One says the O-ring goes on the inside; the other says it goes on the outside. It'd make more sense to have one on EACH side. But at the very least one would think the instructions would be the same since these things come from the same manufacturer.

      3) There were no recommendations as to what other sealant product to use to further secure and seal the connections. I used JB Weld. But if you know something else works better for these parts, one would think you'd give buyers a clue about that.

      My fishing buddy and I did finally get it to install once I bought the parts you failed to provide (and once I flipped a coin on which side deserved the one O-ring), I am happy with the result. But in my opinion it was far more frustrating than it should have been. And these fixes seem rather simple by the manufacturer. They might start by providing the correct bolt for the job and some unified instructions. The implication in your marketing suggests that the kit was complete, and it certainly was not.

      All in all, I'm pleased now that it's done. But I was not a happy camper yesterday about this.

      Finally, I strongly recommend future buyers installing in bare aluminum boats plan for this contingency; it's gonna be a drag if you don't. And I'd also urge you to go for the brass tube rather than the aluminum one. The aluminum one is flimsier than I'd prefer.
