What People Are Saying
When hauling our boat on different occasions, we discovered a loose propeller two different times. After some research we decided to install the Prop-Tight Locking Nut System. The first thing I noticed was the quality of machine work and that they were made of Nibral. With their design incorporating multi position cotter pin slots, there is no chance of the nuts backing off to produce any more loose propellers.
After having some issues over the years with loose propeller nuts and cracked shafts in the keyway, we have found our solution. We came across Prop-Tight Nuts and have now installed them on all our crew boats ranging from 50’ to 115’. We have thus eliminated these issues for our Port Engineers and, more importantly, have removed the cost of additional shafts and unwanted haul outs from our bottom line. A very well made, Made in the USA product.
Throughout my career, I have had propeller nuts back off on occasion. I no longer have that concern now that we installed Prop-Tight Nuts. A great design that gives me one less thing to worry about while traveling or fishing.
During a four-day cruise on the St. John’s River with our boat club, the propeller backed off my boat while in reverse. Luckily, I was able to borrow a propeller and finish the cruise. A few years later, I saw the Prop-Tight Locking Nut System and ordered a set for my 37’ Rybovich and my 30’ Whiticar Walk-Around. Did I mention new propellers aren’t cheap!
After having my old propeller nuts come loose years ago on a 100-mile trip from Barnegat Inlet to Ocean City, Maryland, I now have peace of mind after installing Prop-tight Locking Nuts on my 45’ Ocean Yacht two years ago. This past month we fished two tournaments and put over 1500 miles on the boat and it’s one less thing to worry about going wrong when I’m 80 miles offshore. I will never own another boat without Prop-Tight Nuts on them.
For the first time in 19 years the propeller nuts on my starboard shaft didn’t loosen thanks to Prop-Tight Locking Nuts. Your system was easy to install, the craftsmanship is great, and it really works.
