Question: How do I measure?
Answer: If you do not have access to a set of calipers the simplest way to get an accurate measurement is to use an adjustable wrench. An adjustable wrench has jaws that move in and out by turning a screw with your thumb. Adjust the wrench until the jaws are snug against both sides of the round tube and then lay a tape measure or ruler across the jaws to get the diameter of the tubing. All of the binnacle mount accessories such as the cockpit tables (M0011 and M0012) as well as Model #’s M005, M0023, M0027 and M0027M require a center to center dimension from one tube to the other as well as the diameter of the tube. If you do not know the center spacing on your pedestal guard, simply use a tape measure or ruler and measure from inside to inside and outside to outside of the tubes and provide us with both numbers.
Question: If I mistakenly order the wrong size can I exchange it?
Answer: Yes, provided the item is in new condition, has not been modified and you are willing to pay postage to and from. Taking the time to provide accurate measurements will save you time and expense.

Question: What is the main difference between the Snapit! (M#), TwistIt! (T#) and Versatile (V#) product lines?

The original SnapIt! design is furnished with a “U” clamp that can be used to secure the unit in a permanent location and to help avoid theft. The Versatile line mounts permanently in one location and was developed with a mounting system that fits the most common round tube sizes or a flat surface.

Question: Do SnapIt! products float?
Answer: SnapIt! does not guarantee the floatation of its products. However, the HDPE is buoyant and the governing factor regarding the floatation of a specific item is the amount of stainless hardware used in assembly. If floatation is a concern we recommend initial tests in a controlled environment before installation.
