These machined aluminum T-Bolt Brackets allow our tracks and fishing accessories to securely mount on a boat’s gunwale. Each package comes with stainless steel T-nuts that are heat-treated and machined to securely attach the brackets to the boat. This allows any length of our track to mount to the top of the brackets to build your system without having to drill into the boat.
T-Bolt Bracket Features
- Heavy duty aluminum bracket with stainless steel screw, washer, and T-slot nut.
- Sold in pairs, these brackets allow the use of our tracks and all the accessories to be securely mounted on a boat that otherwise would not be very fisherman friendly.
- Any length of track we offer can be used with these brackets, we recommend one bracket per set of mounting holes for maximum strength.
- The T-Bolt Brackets are brand/model specific and the degree angle will vary between boat brands and models.
How many T-Bolt Brackets do I need per track?
Multiple brackets are needed to properly support the track length you choose and to get the most strength from your boat’s gunwale. Use the chart below to determine how many brackets you need. If you are going to use this mounting method for vertical trees or downriggers, our minimum suggested track length is 24” with four brackets for proper strength from the boat’s wall. The longer the track and the more brackets you use, the stronger your setup will be.

|6” (MT-6 or BMT-6)||2 T-Bolt Brackets/1 Package|
|12” (MT-12 or BMT-12)||3 T-Bolt Brackets/2 Packages|

Which T-Bolt Bracket Do I Need?
The angle of T-Bracket you need corresponds to the angle of your boat's gunwale. For example: if your boat's gunwale is 45 degrees, you will need our TBM-45.
|Angle of Boat Gunwale||Bracket Needed|
|58 Degrees (Starcraft Boats)||TBM-58SC|
|90 Degrees (Tracker Boats)||TBM-90T|
