I have a pair of LD Marine 19 ft outriggers mounted on my cabin roof with thier roof mounts.I have a problem when trying to put them out to fish,I have a hard time trying to get them to seat and lock in position.I have to really work at shaking and bouncing them to get them to lock in position.Anyone else with this problem or any ideas how to make the operate easier

I have the same ones and 2x a year I take them out of holder and clean and I also give them a light sanding. Before I put them back into the holders I apply grease to them, and work them a few times. Seems to be ALOT better.

Do the ld's go out at a 90 degree angle like the cj's did or less?

LD Marine's are sort of the only game in town for a big heavy bar towing rigger without going with spreaders right?

They are incredibly stiff compared to my old Lee's. HUge difference in being able to both pull a heavy bar and get it way back due to the height of the clip at the top.

i had the same problem, take an grind the slots on the bottom of rigger just a little doesnt take much then file the edges to round them over a bit. made a world of difference. no more wrestling trying to get them seated. just lift swing an they drop right in. 4" electric is what i used

I have your fix...
1-don't run with riggers in trolling mode.
2-don't use tight halyard cords
I have used my 19ft. for years now never have issues.
thanks Luis
