The Patented BEACHMASTER Autolock system is light and strong as well as being extremely fast, easy and clean to operate without touching the wheels.
Beachmaster boat wheels unique over-centre locking mechanism compactly encapsulates and locks the wheel against the transom when retracted, then extends in use to form a cross braced frame for high strength in all directions.
They are designed to be used with outboards in shallow water drive mode so they can be operated close to shore.
Their very fast and easy to use auto-locking action up and down is an essential feature for launching and landing on surf beaches and fast flowing rivers or when conditions afloat are rough.
A reassuring click instantly lets you know the wheels are securely locked home in both the up and down positions.
The retracted wheel is locked and prevented from spinning which provides a secure handhold for safety when working around the outboard.
The easy to reach non-jamming up-and-away motion of the mechanism enables the wheels to be deployed and retracted in the shallowest possible water. Beachmaster dinghy wheels are not jammed by the buoyancy of the tire or grounding as can be the case with other systems.
The low visual profile and compact retracted position of beachmaster dinghy wheels against the transom allows for normal unhindered operation the boat and outboard motor.
They have quiet and smooth running, large, quality, Nylon reinforced, 4 ply rated pneumatic tires (10.5" diameter) with polypropylene rims and nylon bearings for durability in marine environments and Butyl tubes for reliability.
Being self contained there are no separate parts to stow or lose or pins to fit. They are always instantly ready for action.
For strength, durability and light weight the wheel system is manufactured with marine grade boat building Aluminum.
The mounting bracket measures 5.5" x 8" and is effectively designed to distribute the wheel loads to 4 widely spaced bolts.
Recommended for boat lengths up to 12 feet. (3.6 m)
Recommended for outboards up to 15 hp.
Recommended working load 220 lbs/set. (100 kg)
Maximum load limit 440 lbs (200 kg)/set on hard smooth surfaces for both fixed and removable mount types.
Recommended tyre pressures 5psi (soft surfaces) to 15psi (hard surfaces).
Fixed Mount Weight: 10 lbs (4.6 kg) set of two.
Removable Mount Weight: 10.5 lbs (4.8 kg) set of two.
Two mounting options are available: Permanently Fixed mount or Removable mount.
Both types are shown below.
FIXED MOUNT OPTION
REMOVABLE MOUNT OPTION
REMOVABLE MOUNT OPTION DETAIL
The removable mount option is the ideal solution for use with roll up inflatable boats and other applications where it is desirable to easily remove the wheel system from the transom. 8 small stainless steel mounting studs (3/4" diameter) remain permanently attached to the transom. The wheel brackets are placed onto the studs and locked in position with thumb catches. See video here.
