Two inexpensive block magnets on either side of the post for that little tool will hold it in place.

Agree that the c-clamp idea is impressive. Fortunately, my Dorsey trailer has a switch that locks out the actuator.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
