Depends on the boat. My Skeeter seems ok for the last 18 years using a Yamaha stick on the trim rod. Pro Rule makes a good one. Some guys like the ones that force the lower unit to the trailer. I guess any of them pretty much do the job.

Pro Rule for sure. Tried the others. Over 10,000 miles trailering cross country not one problem.

Best I’ve used is MotorMate. Call them direct and see if they have one for the new 4 stroke Merc’s. Great company: https://motormateusa.com/

Motor Mate doesn't have one for your motor. I waited a year and I gave up on them. They couldn't even tell me when they might have one. I bought a Tote Rite without the side brace (I already have steering locks). Here it is : https://www.toterite.com/store/p1/Tote-Rite_Regular-4Stroke.html#/. It's very well made and fits perfectly.

Maybe just paranoid but I had one on the trim rods on a previous but didnt want to chance damaging or scratching them on my new one. I had to replace seals before and that was expensive.

Just use an old style transom saver. They have worked for ever.
