TACO Marine Showcasing New Products in Booth 1433 at IBEX, Oct. 2 – 4!

Leading up to IBEX, we’re excited to announce that we’ve submitted two new products for Innovation Award consideration!

HIDEAWAY CHILLAX HINGE

In partnership with Malibu Boats, we developed the Hideaway Chillax Hinge– a ratcheting hinge that allows a standard square cushion to ratchet up out of the lounge seat and become a Class-A backrest. Its unique below-the-deck design gives the appearance of no hinge. The curved design of the ratcheting arms allow a standard square cushion up to 7” thick to fit snug in the lounger and still rotate up into a backrest.

The Hideaway Chillax Hinge is easily modified for wider or narrower seatbacks. A long seatback can also be separated into multiple backrests that operate independently. Additionally, other applications can benefit from this hinge design, such as fold-down transom seats, hideaway tables and access doors.

Features & Benefits:

  • Ratchet ups in three locking positions that can be easily adjusted or added to by changing the side plates
  • The clean look of the below-the-deck mounting make it invisible when stowed
  • Low profile, below-the-deck design and only 4-¼” thick
  • Top- or side-mount design with multiple backrest positions
  • Adaptable to any width backrest
  • Manufactured from Stainless Steel Type-316L and electro-polished
  • Designed for thick cushions for extra comfort
  • Allows a backrest to be added anywhere in a lounge or sun pad
  • Effortlessly return the cushion to the lounge position
  • Multiple backrests can be added that operate independently
  • Returned into the lounge position with no sign of a hinge
  • Patent number US8875347

GRAND SLAM 900 ANCHOR LIGHT

 

 

Our new Grand Slam 900 Anchor Light was created specifically for the safety and convenience of today’s boater. Climbing on the boat gunnel to raise and lower an anchor light is dangerous, time consuming and frustrating. The GS-900 allows boat operators to lift and descend this navigational requirement from the safety of the deck, right under the top and without ever having to climb on the gunnel again. Simply extend the crank handle and rotate the light to the upright position or back to its stowed, towing location.

The light runs on 12 volts and consists of four 3-watt LED Cree chips driven by two Mean Well drivers. Its smooth operation, attractive machined aluminum frame and cast stainless-steel rotator make this item a must for any boater.

Features & Benefits:

  • Machined / Anodized aluminum body
  • Light brushed finish
  • Polished Type-316L stainless steel crank handle
  • Folding crank handle locks flush into base
  • USCG Approved, 2-nm LED light and shaft included
  • Threaded shaft for consistent lift and descent
  • Delrin bearings for smooth operation
  • Roller bearings in crank assembly
  • Mounts through up to 2″ thick hardtops
  • Includes 4″ x 1/4″ round backing plate (hardware not included)
  • Light tube length allows for modification by installer to exact height
  • No more climbing on T-tops or gunnels
  • Safe, no-hassle raising and lowering of an anchor light
