mine is being delivered today after being on backorder. you can still swivel the racks but they won't stop at the 90 degree angles.

honestly... a T handle broke on my old boat and i liked it better without them. I freaking hate the stops at 90 degrees... we never use it. much quicker if you forgot to spin the racks when going to dock...
of course i've never done that before. ever....

Me either... (Forgetting to spin racks) Broke one under warranty, just replaced the second one... Should only be $56, not $90 from your dealer... Agree with Willy, probably will not replace again, just remove the guts and the racks will spin freely, no real need for the stops. They break because people don't spin the locking knob all the way and try to spin the rack, put's stress on the little pin and it is destine to break!
