Default Tired of the Captain Morgan

Put this together to stop having to close the lid and hold down with my foot to remove flounder from my gigg. Only took a piece of half inch poly board and a 4 foot stick of 1 inch angle aluminum. The hardware is stainless. I'll let you know how it works soon. Cost is about $20.00

Cool idea, let us know how it works out. The inner edges of my coolers are all chewed from doing the Captain Morgan with all thread gigs.

Looks great. For $20 seems like a good deal. Does that include shipping costs?
What kind of warranty?








j/k thanks for sharing

Doug @ B&D Welding and I put this together last year. It works VERY
Well.

You need to install these corner chocks to hold the cooler in place and hold it down also.

You can get it at Academy Sports in P'Cola.

Default corner chocks

Evening XSHARK
What to the tie-down straps connect to? Couldn't tell from the picture and your right it will need to be secured to be able to pull against. If I could cut metal like that it would be the way to go.I'm hoping the lips on the angle will help in getting them off.

Those corner chocks screw down to the deck. The strap hooks to the chocks and to that little loop in the middle of the handles on the cooler.

Bama, if you haven't already make sure to hit those bolts going through the ice chest with a good dose of silicon. It don't take long to get some water sloshing around in the cavity of the ice chest. Been there, done that.
