Default taking off my outrigger poles....

Just got a pair of Taco Grand Slam 270 Outriggers installed.

I know there must be a way to take the poles off and just leave the mounts. I just dont know how to do it. The boat is on the water and I figure that if the poles dont need to be exposed to the elements, the longer they will last.

Anyone can help teach me how to get them off? Are they meant to be kept off or should they be kept mounted?

Thanks in advance

There is some sort of knob-like thingie on the base. I dont know if Im suppossed to pull on it before pulling the poles or if that is some sort of line holder for when the riggers are retracted.

I just dont want to bust the poles or the mounts when they are days old.

Pull the knob out and slide the poles out.

Just push the little button on the side of the holders on the base and pull the pin out that holds the poles in. Should have a small trace of wire attaching the pin to the bases. Real Easy!

Leave them on and use woody wax . . . not a very big job . . . maybe less than constantly removing and replacing them

If there is a set screw, constantly loosening and tightening it will cause wear and render it ineffective, especially if it screws into an aluminium or other soft metal part
