The roller does not reach out far enough to stop the boat
An Example of the Roller not being in a position to stop th e boat. Hence use the Roller Extender for a quick fix. You could alter the angle of the Winch Post … but this is a bit more complicated.
       How do I correct the Wrong Snare to Latch Angle ? One of the most common problems for not getting the best results is having the wrong angle of the Snare to the Latch. This is where the bow is at an extreme angle and/or the trailer has an odd winch post angle.
  A quick solution with the Wedge Kit

Example … here is an Easytow Boat Trailer options...made for Boat Latch.
How to change the Latch angle…. if it is not right [1]  Use the L & R ‘Wedge Kit’ which allows you to alter the angle in either direction by 14 0       See the Brochure “The ‘Wedge’ option” on website - under “Installation - detail version” [2] OR change the winch post or winch platform 
Use a replacement from your local trailer supplier for one that has a more suitable angle.

Our guide to the right parts that cope with a range of boats, that you can take to your trailer supplier for correct selection OR have produced to suit your needs. Click here to open. However it should be noted that the Fibreglass boat copes more easily with a winch post that is more laid back, as opposed to a aluminium boat with a towing eye where a more vertical post gets the roller in the right position.
