    • Designed for 3-Ram Trim / Tilt Systems
    • Thanks to advances in boat-building technology over the last decade, modern transoms are created to withstand torque
    • That's why the m-y wedge™ is so long overdue
    • It's only eight inches long, so it fits in any boat storage compartment, unlike the old style transom saver
    • It works with manual or hydraulic jack plates, and regular or long shaft models
    • It's virtually indestructible as well as UV and saltwater resistant
    • It won't harm the trailer, outboard or boat and perhaps most importantly, it completely eliminates the need to lean underneath the boat for installation, nothing to hold on to
    • Manufactured in the United States of America
    • One-year limited warranty against manufacturing defects
    • Safe, convenient, and easy to use and store, the m-™ is the answer to every outboard boater's needs
    • The technology behind the m-™ is fiendishly simple
      • Constructed from EPDM rubber and high-tech plastic, it simply fits over the outboard's trim & tilt piston
      • When the motor meets the rubber as it's tilted down, it self-centers to form a cushioned stable platform that seals on both ends for safe, dependable trailering at the correct height
      • Eliminates "Trailer Shock"

    Installation Instructions for 3-Ram Trim / Tilt Systems:

    • Installation Notes:
      • Install on Trim / Tilt Switch Side (Normally Starboard Side of Mercury / Honda / Johnson 4-Stroke, Johnson / Evinrude Outboards)
      • Install on Trim / Tilt Switch Side (Normally Port Side of Yamaha / Suzuki Outboards
      • F300-F350 V-8 models need 2 m- units, port and starboard)
    • 1. Trim outboard to up position
    • 2. Simply slide M-Y Wedge on Trim / Tilt switch side normally Port side (see note) of Yamaha / Suzuki and normally Starboard side of Mercury / Honda / Johnson / Evinrude over Trim/Tilt piston rod of Lower unit
      • Note: (On Yamaha/Suzuki the trim/tilt switch may be on the Starboard side, if there is a grease zerk where the m- meets the swivel bracket, the m- must go on the Port or Starboard side depending on where the grease zerk is)
    • 3. M-Y Wedge will position and self-center, slide completely down.
    • 4. Trim outboard down until the rubber begins to compress
    • 5. To remove M-Y Wedge simply trim outboard to up position and remove
    • 6. Store M-Y Wedge in any boat compartment for convenience
    • Note: Manufacturer recommends that you rotate M-Y Wedge, 1/4 to 1/2 turn after each use
      • This helps even the compression of the EPDM Rubber on the unit.
