New Propeller Removal Tool

I just saw this. It's called a Propchock. It makes it easy and fast. Looks like we don't have to use a 2x4 anymore. I saw it at propchock.net, think I will order one and try it. Has anyone else see this?

Looks cool, but unnecessary for the budget conscious. I don't know. We might try it, considering the amount of props we remove.Let us know what you think if you get one.

what is the purpose of this, i have never had issues removing a prop, if you grease the splines they just slide on and off, are the newer model motors different?

ohh i see it stops the prop from turning, the prop isn't supposed to be so tight on there that you need to do this, only need one hand on the wrench and one hand to hold the prop, you over tighten it and you are gonna break stuff, Cade will confirm that your prop should turn easily, if you spin it and it stops abruptly it is too tight

You are correct, it locks the propeller so you can take the nut off without hunting a 2x4 to jam in the prop to keep it from turning. I saw one being used at a local boat dealer shop and it's fast and safe. They love it. Hopkins propeller in Covington sells them. Guy's that are always pulling there prop's for service, and or changing them out for better ones, could use one of these
