        Days are getting longer and the weather is getting warmer. You know what that means… Summer is just around the corner! 


        For many of you, this also means that it's finally time to take out your boat. There are many important steps that you should take in order to properly care for your boat. As a current or soon-to-be boat owner, you’re likely aware that a boat should be drained after every use. Not only that, it should also be safely stored and stabilized. Below, we’ve explained how the Lynx Boat Trailer Pack will help you complete these steps quickly, easily, and most importantly– safely.

        1. Securing Your Tongue Jack

        It is important that you properly store your boat after every use, for both short-term or long-term storage. The Lynx Boat Trailer pack makes securing your boat hassle-free, and it is also safer than using unreliable wood or rocks that may crack under pressure. 


        To safely secure your tongue jack, simply place the wheel or post inside the well of the Chock ‘R Dock. For added height, you can interlock up to 4 Lynx Levelers under the chock.

        2. Draining Your Boat

        There are numerous reasons why it’s important to drain your boat after every use, the main ones being: 


        • It helps prevent mold from growing
        • It rids your boat of any aquatic invasive species that could be spread to other bodies of water
        • It prevents damage that could be caused by the water expanding when it freezes in the winter

         

        To drain your boat, you will actually need to unlevel it. Ironically, our levelers can help with that! The Lynx Boat Trailer Pack makes this a quick and simple process. Use one of your chocks to secure at least one wheel while draining. If unleveling front to back, place your other chock underneath your wheel or post. If unleveling side to side, place your Lynx Levelers and Lynx Cap underneath the wheels, on the opposite side of the drain.

        PRO TIP: You may want to place a bucket underneath the spout to catch any unwanted debris.

        3. Securing Your Wheels

        Another step to ensure that your boat trailer is properly stored is securing the wheels. If the front of your boat trailer is level or tilting downhill, position the Lynx Chock 'R Dock under the front of the wheel. If the front of your boat trailer is tilting uphill, position the Lynx Chock 'R Dock under the back of the wheel.

        Additionally, the Lynx Boat Trailer pack comes with the Lynx Stay Put Plug Holder-- a user-friendly, heavy duty plug that keeps connections clean and off the ground. To use it, simply place the plug holder where you want to install it, mark the holes for position, use a drill to create a pilot hole, and screw the plug holder into place.

        Easy to Clean 

        Another perk of using Lynx Products is that their porous interior makes them easy to clean and won’t retain any moisture or dirt, unlike wood or rocks.  



        If you are looking for a way to safely and efficiently drain, store and secure your boat, you’ve come to the right place! The Lynx Boat Trailer pack is everything you need to care for your boat trailer conveniently bundled into one package.
