Simply the best idea ever for the adventurous sportsman! This plate allows access to the previously unreachable fishing or hunting ground with a standard tiller engine without worries of prop damage.

Here's how it works:

The jack plate is designed to swivel on the rugged stainless steel shaft in case of an obstacle such as a stump or rock while carefully trolling back to the hotspots your buddies can't reach!

Simply tighten the side swivels to desired setting for your rig size and you are protected from a potential lower unit or prop BOO-BOO! Also included are two safety cables to prevent overtravel swiveling of engine when an obstruction is encountered.

Tightness is determined by engine reverse requirement. The larger the engine, the tighter the swivels for preventing flip-up during reverse.

This is the only Kick-Up plate manufactured by any manufacturer that has vertical travel similar to a jack plate as well as the kick up function in the case of hitting a log, stump or earth below.

No springs to break and no replacement parts necessary as the JPL9638 is made of aircraft quality aluminum and 3/8 stainless steel chain, grade 316!

Proudly manufactured and assembled
100% in the USA

This unit is compatible with clamp on engines by adding the accessory star-board plate. If you have a clamp-on engine that is not standard BIA Bolt pattern and wish to use this unit, in the options tab add the star-board plate for clamp on engines and it will come installed on the unit so you can use your clamps and have a solid mounting surface. The starboard plate adds 5 more pounds to the weight of the item. The plate is made from marine grade plastic that is resistant to freezing, corrosion, and rot. It is 1 inch thick and spans across the entire mounting surface so that you have plenty of room to mount your engine.

Locking pins and similar are not necessary for your Vance Manufacturing Kick-Up unit to trailer your boat. Click Here for more information and instructions on how to your boat with your new Vance Manufacturing Kick-Up Plate.

WARNING: The JPL9638 Gen/3 is rated for outboard motors up to a maximum of 60 H.P. Do not encounter obstructions at speeds over 5 M.P.H and only in the forward direction. The JPL9638 Gen/3 is not designed to encounter obstructions while the boat is being operated in the reverse direction.
