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 over-travel 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 jackplate as well as the kick up function limited by stainless steel chain in the event of hitting a log, stump or earth below.

No springs to break and no replacement parts necessary as the JPL9650 is made of aircraft quality aluminum and 3/8 stainless steel chain, grade 316.

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.

Trailer Your boat:

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.

Here are the pre-drilled hole dimensions listed below in inches for standard outboard engines:

  • Pre-drilled holes for 1/2'' stainless hardware
  • 12 7/8'' across the top two holes from center to center
  • 9 7/8'' across the bottom two holes from center to center
  • 8'' of vertical distance between the top holes and bottom mounting holes

If your holes do not match this configuration, you can drill into the aluminum plate. However, by modifying the unit returns will not be accepted.

    Kick plate

    Posted by Julius lovasz on 14th Nov 2020

    Just put this on my 16/48 weld built with 50 Tohatsu straight forward install. but you cannot trim the motor all the way up or it will break off the tiller handle on the transom, also can't trim up enough to get to prop if something gets wrapped around it. the whole purpose of getting this was in case I hit something it would hopefully save the foot, but it will kick up enough to hit the transom also and break the tiller. Plate and motor are mounted as high as possible.

    I ordered my breakaway and transom wedges @ 9am on a Friday and they were at my front steps @5pm on Saturday. Great customer service!! all my question were answered before I placed my order. Everything was packaged great and seems to be built with high quality materials. Bolted up to my boat like it should can't wait to get it on the water this weekend to try it out! Highly recommend this company!
