The weld on plates are 1/2" thick aluminum and have threaded holes, (5/16-18) , which allows you to weld them onto the bow of your aluminum boat, then mount your Anchor Caddie, PRO, Original or Cadet directly to the plate with the included hardware.
See our Product Support page for included hardware and installation guide for the Anchor Caddie, Original or Cadet. Each weld on plate will come with all the hardware needed to install your Anchor Caddie, once welded to your bow, plus Locktite Thread Locker to make sure the screws stay put. this is in addition to the lock washers for extra locking power.
It is recommended that you enlist a certified welder to mount your plate. Anderson & Anderson Engineering cannot be held responsible for damage or injury resulting from poor installation of the Weld On Threaded Plate.

What our customers are saying!
Anchor Caddie is high quality products indeed! Hands down the best customer service I've ever dealt with and the shipping was crazy fast. Paul answered all my questions and made sure to only sell me what I needed for MY boat. I recommend Anchor Caddie to anyone looking for topnotch anchoring systems at a good price!

I had looked for some time for an anchor nest… and it fit the bill perfectly. I have used it many times now and I am really impressed with the setup. Just as impressive was the customer service I received from you on the order…

The anchor caddie is an awesome addition for our boat. It makes anchoring a breeze. Love the way it locks in place and allows us to travel rough water without the concern of the anchor banging around in the boat.
