Boat motor transomThe shipping was quick and on time easy to purchase and recive.
Problem is that one arm on the transom is defective and does not move. I need it ASAP and that is the problem with purchasing on line as it's hard to return in a timely matter

Will this work on smaller [9.9hp.] non power tilt outboards? What is the lenght range?
Asked by: fixmix
For the Attwood® Shock-Absorbing Transom Saver(006160618), it has a length range of 27 – 36 inches. As far as compatibility is concerned, some trailers may not have the brake support in the back to be compatible with this transom saver. It is mainly designed for bigger motors. If you have the necessary roller down at the bottom of your trailer, this product might work but usually smaller trailers do not have anything extra at the bottom for support. One option you might consider (if you have the capacity) is to put a bolt-bracket at the bottom of your trailer and you could possibly use this item. This product does contain both. You might want to consider overall, an adjustable, heavy-duty transom saver that is more geared towards smaller (jon) boats. For current availability (which is subject to change), please contact your local Academy Sports + Outdoors store directly or our Customer Service Center at (888) 922-2336 for current availability.
