Detwiler Industries manufactures the most performance driven compact line of jackplates within the industry today. Due to its patented revolutionary design, Detwiler jackplates provides ease of installation and years of trouble-free use. The Detwiler line of jackplates is recognized throughout the boating industry for their durability and their reliability in the harshest of marine environments. The Detwiler plate design features three patents on the unique tongue and groove design. The plates are assembled using the finest in marine grade stainless hardware and supported by solid 1 1/4 inch stainless steel guide rods. If that’s not enough, what really separates them from their competitors is the fact that their hydraulic jackplates use a self-contained pump cylinder that is actually mounted in the jackplate.

Installation is quick and easy. Simply mount the jackplate to the transom, the motor to the jackplate and you’re ready to go. There is no need to install, fill or bleed separates hydraulic lines or mount the pump reservoir in the boat. Service labor and shop time is therefore drastically reduced plus with the sealed self-contained pump cylinder it makes Detwiler jackplates environmentally friendly.

As an added bonus you recover more room in your transom or storage areas because you don’t have to mount the pump or a reservoir. I have my choice of three options to control exactly. The rocker switch OBD model or I can upgrade to the gauge return signal which is the OPT or the exclusive exact dial system, the OEZ.

Detwiler jackplates provides dependability and durability while offering load adjusting capabilities second to none. And as you can see from our demo boat the enhanced performance is simply awesome. Detwiler hydraulic jackplates come in 4, 6 and 8 inch setback. They also feature a full line of manual 4, 6, 8 and 10 inch jackplates. All mechanical and hydraulic Detwiler jackplates are backed by a 3 year limited warranty. You can visit us at for other jackplate accessories as well.
