I've been thinking about getting one of these, as I fish alone the majority of the time, and I'm getting older, and contorting myself over the trolling motor to un-hook/hook up, the boat is getting tiresome. Does anyone have any experience with these? It appears that Drotto was the original, and sold them on the Boat2Trailer website, but now Boat2Trailer has their own version. I'm not sure which might be a better option.

Hey Bryan , i got a drotto ''stratos/ranger'' model a while ago and would suggest a ramp-n-clamp from Boat2trailer depending on your boat . Mine is a fiberglass bassboat style hull and the angle of the keel was not best for the drotto . if getting a new one i woud get the ramp-n-clamp . for aluminium boats the drotto seems good .

It's the exact same thing.. Pick one.
While looking quite similar, one look and you can see they are not exactly the same.
Since they are not exactly the same, I thought I would ask others, if they have experience with one or the other. I'm sure both will work.

They used to be the same but as of Jan. 1, 2023 only Drotto sells the latch they have been making. Boat2Trailer has never manufactured a boat latch. They had been relabeling Drotto's latch and selling it. Drotto claims their latch is designed and made in USA. I'm not sure where Boat2Trailer gets theirs now.
