View Full Version : ? for all box anchor owners

Just got my new box anchor in the mail and was excited that I found an anchor that will fold down so it stores out of the way under the bow cushions. However I wasnt too happy when I realized this thing is a complete pain in the a$$ to to pull the tension rod and fold up. The damn rod is nearly impossible to pull up out of the eyelet on garage floor. I cant imagine doin this inside the boat and scraping the hell out of my gelcoat. I think the problem with it is that the tension rod wants to catch on the eyelet as you're trying to pull it up. Anyone else run into this prob?

I noticed that when mine came also. The best way I found to do it is stand it up on edge and put it between your legs. After doing it 2 or 3 times, I've gotten used to it and have no issues.
