Removable outboard pull handle

Hi all I'm new to the forum so apologies for anything I am doing wrong.
I am looking to purchase one of the removable outboard engine pull handles that a member (Cotemar)posted details about some time ago but not where one could buy one.
I have searched the web but can't find one, I think it would be a great security feature to any outboard, preventing bad people from starting the engine easily??
Hope someone can help?

Is that a big problem in your area?

Bad people going around starting up outboards?

Re: Removable outboard pull handle

I didn't Cotemar's original post but that sounds like a great deterrent!

Re: Removable outboard pull handle

I believe he made his removable handle, wherever that post is, it explains how to do it. If not, he had lots of pictures so it can be duplicated easily I would imagine.

Well I may be a bit cynical in my 'old' age but there seems to be more of them these days. We are taking about someone stealing the dinghy and outboard when they are left unattended!! .......aren't we??
Anyway, do you know the bit of kit I am referring to??

There are several pics of this removable pull handle posted and is sure doesn't look home/hand made??
Have a look and let me know
Cheers

Hi Nicomal,

You will not be able to purchase my Dinghy Removable outboard pull handle as I only made a few for my own use.

It is hand made and I guess I could make you one if you are not able to make one of your own.

I did not post my blueprint as I wanted all you DIY guys to make them all a bit different, so as to enhance the handles security.

I am a boater at heart and Love to share good ideas to make boating better and safer.

We have been using it for over a year now and it works great. Its simple and easy to use.

Hi Cotemar
Many thanks for your reply, you must have a workshop or facility to make this bit of kit??? I am envious, wish I had one.
If you have the time and are willing, I would be very grateful if you could make me one. Let me know together with the costs inc shipping to the UK and I can do you a bank transfer or cheque or just pay into your bank.
All the best
Nick

Re: Removable outboard pull handle

Great idea, but our Tohatsu 18 is so easy to start you could do it without the T handle.

The handle was actually made with hand tools and a vise.
Aluminum is just so easy to work with and is still very strong.
