The 12 Volt Female transom plug is a flush mount female plug. This plug requires a 1 3/4 drill bit for installation as well as a 1 1/2 inch rear clearance. The outer diameters are 2.25 by 2.25 inches.
Our 12 volt plugs provide simple "push in" and "pull out" connections. The blue cap on the female plugs secure the male in position. Our plugs do not require a rotary action to secure the plug in place. Plugs that "twist on" and "twist off" wear out quickly, eventually leading to poor connections, as well as decreased performance from the electrical components that require the electrical source.
Electric reels are particularly sensitive to poor connections, such connections will result in decreased power, poor performance, and will eventually lead to costly repairs. Our plugs eliminate this common problem. Fishing lights that incorporate ballasts, are also sensitive to poor connections. We recommend using our plugs with all Kristal, HydroGlow, Precision, and Magnum tackle accessories.
The wiring of our plugs is very simple. There is a positive and a negative channel, the wires fit into each of these channels. Each channel has 2 screws, which when tightened, secure the wires within the channel. We recommend sealing these with silicone caulk to protect against environmental hazards.
The male and the inline female plugs feature the strongest strain relief system in the industry. Within the plug you will find a built in clamp that allows the main wire to be securely fastened to the inside of the plug. This incredibly strong screw down clamp will keep the wires from pulling free should someone pull the plug from the outlet incorrectly.
Like all marine electrical connections and components, a fresh water rinse is imperative after each trip offshore. We recommend spraying down all your electronics with either of these products:
- Super Slick Stuff
- 386 Nano Tech
* Soap is NEVER a good idea. Soap reduces the surface tension of the water, allowing salt to enter and cause corrosion.
The products outlined above are also excellent to spray down your tackle, as well as your engines. We strongly recommend using any of these.
