The TotalBoat Trailer-Mounted Boat Lift is a safe, stress-free way to raise a boat weighing up to 10,000 pounds up to 12" above the bunks or rollers, by yourself. Do routine maintenance with your boat still securely attached to the trailer.
This simple but ingenious system uses four lifts attached to your trailer and positioned under the four strongest areas of the boat: hull chines, stringers, and transom. While raising the boat, it's easy to keep the load balanced by turning the adjustable rod on each lift one half turn at a time. As your boat lifts up off of the trailer, it remains stable and secure because the lifts are attached firmly to the trailer itself.
Sturdy, adjustable lifts are extremely easy to configure to accommodate a wide range of boat shapes and sizes. No more hoists or dangerous improvised solutions! See below for fit information.

Important Fit Requirements
The Trailer-Mounted Boat Lift System requires minimum clearance heights where each lift is mounted:
Make sure there is a minimum of 12" clearance from the ground to the bottom of your trailer frame. Additionally, the distance from the top of the trailer frame to the chines must be no less than 10".
Boats with very low trailers and or low rise from the trailer to the boat may lack sufficient clearance. The lift is designed for use on trailer beams 2" to 3" wide and 4.5" to 5.75" tall.
Please inquire if you have any questions whatsoever.

Do you make the bolting plates larger to accommodate a wider trailer frame? I have an aluminum trailer with 3" wide flange.
JD cannot recommend any alterations that have not been tested.
My Boat is 12,000 lb , can I just add more lift kits ,like two more ?
It's not recommended.
I have a 21 ftt, 2010 Cobia center console. On a custom Ameritrail trailer. The trailer beam measures 3 and 3/8 acros and is 5 and 1/2 tall. WIll the trailer mount boat lift mount on the beams?
You will need to look at the measurements for the productI Purchased to use with my 20 foot glasstron on an easy loader trailer.They worked great allowing me to sand the bottom prime and paint.
The lift is designed for use on trailer beams 2" to 3" wide and 4.5" to5.75" tall.You are 3/8" to wide..., yep had the same issue and made custom 1/4" steelplates. Someone else posted the idea here in a review, worked. Now itdon't matter what trailer I can use.Make sure there is a minimum of 12" clearance from the ground to the bottomof your trailer frame. Additionally, the distance from the top of thetrailer frame to the chines must be no less than 10".
Will this product fit and support a 1988 Catalina 22 with a wing keel?
No, because these lifting devices are for raising flat,chine boats, notround bilges. I have a set I'd sell best offer.
Probably not, there needs to be a flat on the hull bottom and that is pretty curved at the chine.

I have a 23 foot Searay bowrider. The trailer is a Load Rite 5 Starr Aluminum Tandem axle skiff with I-Beam frame. From looking at it I can't find a place for the rear lifts. Was wondering if it will work with this trailer. Hopefully. Thanks.
Hi, it is up to the customer to measure the trailer dimensions and determine whether it will fit. This system works wonders when it will fit your trailer/boat setup, but this is not a universal system for every trailer or every boat unfortunately. We do not recommend purchasing this product if you have uncertainties that it will not fit.

TotalBoat Trailer-Mounted Boat Lift.These are sold in a set of 4? I assume so just want to be sure.Looks like they would make servicing my boat bottom way easier.
Yes, they are sold in a set of 4, worked great to paint the bottom of my 25 Hydra sport
They come as a set of 4. Works great!Get Outlook for Android
Yes, I received a set of 4.
They come as a set of four and work well. I have a 28 foot boat which is a little big for this equipment and I never put anything that I would mind losing between the trailer and the boat. Be sure to lift every corner evenly.
That is correct, you will get 4 jacks! Please make sure you measure thetrailer to ensure the jacks will fit and read the Tech Specs along with allsafety warnings! Make sure the boat is level before attempting to jack andonly spin them 1 turn per jack when raising or lowering. I love mine andthey work great!
Hi Larry, these come in sets of 4, yes. We have found these to be incredibly useful, but it is very important that you measure and they will fit your boat/trailer.

If the lift is inverted with the large pipe up. What is the distance from the top of the trailer frame to the top of the pad with it cranked all the way down?
The minimum working distance between the trailer frame and the hull is 10", if I remember correctly it is 9.5" - 9.75" or thereabout to the top of the pad.

Hello, among the other answers you mention that the product comes in two packs of about 60 pounds each. I'll have this product sent to friend who's moving internationally, and the mover's asking for the box sizes; if you could share the sizes of the two boxes that would be great. Thank you.
Each box is roughly 6.75" high x 24.5" length x 24.5" wide.

Do you see any issues using this on a hull with lapstrake? I own a Montgomery 23.Thanks.
Very nice boat! This product is generally not recommended for most sailboats. If the pad sits on one individual strake, it may exert too much force in one area. We have found that the angle on many sailboat hulls where the pad meets the hull is also too steep to use this product properly or safely.

Can I double up the amount of lifts to get more lift capacity? Need to lift 12000 lbs?

Working great for my bottom paint job
The trailer lift system is allowing me to prep, prime and paint the entire bottom of my 20' center console boat. Based on another reviewer with a similar EZ Loader trailer I decided to buy the lift system. As the other reviewer mentioned I bought a box of 50 washers so I could add 4 washers to each bolt so the nut didn't reach the end of the by thread. The beams on my trailer are about 2.5" high so it almost worked without the washers. Fortunately the width of the trailer beams (3.5") allowed for a good (but tight) fit so I didn't have to modify or replace the included brackets as some have mentioned. Also, the space between the top of the trailer and the boat transom is about 8" so that made for a very tight fit for the aft jacks. After maxing out the jacks at the bow I ended up with about 8" of space between the bottom of the hull and bunks which is enough room to use my orbital sander on all areas of the hull. Working around the trailer structure isn't always easy but I was able to reach everything one way or another.

Could use improvement
This would be an awesome product if the plates were an inch longer to fit many of the trailers that have 3 1/2" beams. The cost to modify the plates for a work around starts to make it not worth it. Seems to me it would be only a slight change in the manufacturing that would have minimal additional cost and make it appeal to many more buyers.
Works as advertised
Does what it decribes. Paint is a little thin, but that's no what you buy them for. They lift he boat safely and allow you to work under it while still on the trailer. Trailer will still be under the boat and you'll have to work around it, but everything is accessible.

I was able to paint the bottom of my boat by myself including all of the trailer bunks. It paid for itself on the first use. I did replace the bolts to better fit my trailer and I was able to slide it in between my boat and trailer with only 8.5" of space.
Worth every penny

Great Idea but hampered by faulty design work & shoddy MFG.
Ok first it is a great design and will worgreat once you fix the manufacturing design problems. First Brownell didn't design the mounting plates to mount on any trailer with rails ladger than 2 1/2 inches. This excludes most heavy duty aluminum trailers manufactured today such as Magic Tilt which rails are 3 1/2 inch aluminum I beam. So to get these to mount they have to modified. This is really irritating since the problem could be avoided by making the plates 1 1/2 inches longer and adding an extra hole for the larger trailers. I have included some pictures of the problem and the modifications that had to ne made. also the paint sub standard and they plates had already started to rust.

Ok future buyers be warned that is your trailer rails are wider than 2 1/2 inches the mounting plates supplied with this will not work and you will have to make some new plates or come up with another way to mount these U bolts, etc. That is a real bummer that you are going to have to spend additional money on top of already spending $700 for these when it would be so easy for the manufacturer could make the plates an inch larger to accommodate wider trailer rails. Then there is the finish and the paint was so thin that the steel had already started to rust. The design is great but the manufacturing is sloppy and it is obvious that Brownell doesn't care about quality control or adjusting to the needs of their customers since I am not the first to complain about the mounting problem.
Very close to being awesome
As others have said you have to have a very narrow trailer beam for them to fit. Mine is like a small I Beam, I think most trailers these days are. They would not fit without a lot of effort and some engineering. Once they are on they work well and are solid.
Handy and innovative design.
Thought the painted finish a little cheap, could've been a little better quality finish. Thought the lifting pads would've had maybe a rubber pad.

How did I live without it!!!!
This is the best tool I have bought in a long time. This is a must have item for both the professional and Diy'er as well. The ONLY negative is the threads are not long enough to accommodate all trailers and a 2x4 block was used between the lower plate and trailer to take up the space. Just supply different bolts and it would be perfect.
