How do you install BōT RōP®?
A seven inch hole saw will work the best, as it cuts a perfect circle and cuts down on installation time. A jig saw and reciprocating saw are great options for installation. This type of reciprocating saw blade is essential for a perfect cut. BōT RōP can be installed in composite, PVC vinyl, aluminum, and wood decking. The pier mount model may be installed on any wood, steel, pvc, or aluminum piling. (See Instructions)
What size boat can BōT RōP® support?
Anywhere from 35 feet and below or 7500 pounds and below. If you are looking to tie up a house boat or large cruiser, we recommend changing out the rope to a 1/2-3/4th's inch diameter line.
What is BōT RōP® made out of?
The device is made out of stainless steel, steel, and aluminum all coated in an epoxy resin that is powder coated and baked in an oven to preserve the integrity of all the metals in order to restrain corrosion, rust, and damage.
How do I change out the rope?
Changing out the rope is simple. Pull the existing rope completely out and lock the spool into place with the set screw. From there, unscrew the rope attachment and install the new rope. lastly, unscrew the set screw to release the rope back into the canister. (See Instructions)

BōT RōP® can be used in fresh or salt water. It has stainless steel and aluminum that is coated to prevent corrosion and rust.
With what type of line does the device come?
It comes with a 7/16 inch white, double braided, nylon rope that is "end whipped" at the base of the splice for extra support. The
9 1/2 foot line will either have a coated customized snap hook or an eye at the end for mooring.
May I use my own rope?
Yes. If you want to install a larger or smaller line made from different material, that is fine. Just make sure the line can extend all the way without exceeding the spring's elasticity.
