T-H MARINE INTRODUCES REDESIGNED HYDRAULIC STEERING LOCK
Huntsville, AL – August 6, 2019 – T-H Marine Supplies, Inc., of Huntsville, Alabama, announces the complete redesign and reintroduction of their STEER STOP® Outboard Hydraulic Steering Lock. Using two stabilizer clips that attach to an outboard motor's hydraulic steering rams, STEER STOP® works by keeping the engine centered and preventing damage that occurs when a motor swings left and right during transport. The new and improved STEER STOP® is now available online and will also be available through a variety of retailers.
“The original STEER STOP® paved the way, but it was time to make improvements so it could be even more reliable, more durable, and easier to use,” said T-H Marine President and CEO, Jeff Huntley. “Now boaters will notice several ways the new STEER STOP® stands apart from imitation and performs better than any other hydraulic steering lock on the market.”
