Installation

 

 

Thank your for your purchase of Top Notch Troll

The ultimate steering controller for trolling motors.

 

This unit comes standard with a 1 1/8  in. shaft block that fits directly on most Minnkota shafts.

 

For 1 in. shafts or most Motor Guide trolling motors, a plastic bushing is provided (snapped on the handle) and is to be placed on the shaft under the head and the shaft blocks then attach over it.

 

1 ¼  in. blocks are available for Motor Guide

Vari-Max  or 1 ¼ in shafts

 

DIRECTIONS

 

  1. Loosen the 2 bolts from shaft blocks leaving 1 block and bolts halfway through keeping the block on the bracket.
  2. Place the unit over the trolling motor head and on the shaft of the trolling motor.
  3. Holding unit in place, insert the other block and push the bolts through and put nuts on. 
  4. Space the unit evenly around the head not touching the trolling motor head and tighten nuts in place. 

TIP: Locking handle in the notch 90 deg. of bracket and aligning handle with the handle of the trolling motor will square the unit to the motor head.

WARNING
