About the Prop Alert

The Prop Alert is made with a bright material with reflective strips that easily fits over the prop making the motor more noticeable. This helps the autos following the towed boat gauge the proper stopping distance and avoid hitting the motor.  The reflective strips are visible at over 100 yards when headlights shine on the reflective material providing even more safety.  There is even a space for a logo to showcase your hobby.

Prop Alert now features bright orange material with a reflective strip around the sides of the product. This allows for more visibility from the side and makes your motor more noticeable when it is parked to avoid people walking into the sharp prop. Plus, the new side strip adds more durability against a nicked prop.

Advantages:
• Highlights the motor sticks out beyond the trailer highlights.
• Increases visibility at night, in rain or bad weather.
• Can be seen up to 100 yards away.
• Helps avoid repairs, personal injury and higher insurance rates.
• Protect your children from a sharp prop in the water.  Cover you boat prop while it is parked in the water and not in operation.  Don’t forget to remove it before turning the motor on.
• Conforms to current state laws.
• Can be used to carry your belongings when you take it off to get in the water.
• Available in three sizes

Boat Motor Danger Zone

“Danger Zone”

When your boat is being towed, the motor sticks out approximately 4-6 ft beyond the trailer and the caution lights. This makes it very difficult for the automobile following the boat being towed to gauge the actual stopping distance. The result is an accident waiting to happen; ruining your day on the water and possibly longer.
Hazardous conditions:

  • Any Automobile following your towed boat
  • Driving in high traffic conditions
  • Stop and go areas
  • Early morning or night time
  • Rain or bad weather
  • Protect your prop in parking lots and storage
  • Help protect your family from accidents while beached or stowed
