Those are great features. Gets the unit up where you can see it better. Adjustable height and will work with any brand or model.

These mounts are not unit specific. The unit in the pic is a HDS 7 to give you a example. I did not drill any holes in the top plate, this way you can drill holes to mount any bracket. When running across the lake just lower the unit to the floor. If you want to remove your unit when leaving the lake just loosen the top set screw and slide it out, no more messing with the two screw on the unit.
I built the first mount so I could see my graph better, and not have to bend over to change pages.
I field tested this mount for a year and made only one improvement.

finding a way to secure the units would be great. By secure I mean to keep thieves from getting at them. If something similar to a lock lug on a car could be made, that screwed into the unit where the mounting knobs go, it would work.
Or have bolts with eyes welded on and once the bolts are screwed into the holes on the unit, run a cable or bicycle lock thru them then they cant be unscrewed.
That is how I would secure my small outboard s on. once the mounting handles were tightened, run a gun cable lock thru the holes, and lock it. you cannot turn the handles after that.
Then where the unit mounts to the floor of the boat, put a clevis pin with a hole thru it for a padlock.

I just slide the top off with my graph by loosening the top locking handle. A thief would have to unbolt the base to steal it. This is to much trouble.

Looks like they would rust. Maybe if they were made out of stainless or aluminum.
