How to use the Swivel Pedestal
Cannon’s swivel base downrigger pedestals allow you to rotate the mounting plate for optimal positioning. To rotate the mounting plate, disengage the lock pin by pulling the lock pin handle down. Turn the plate to the desired angle and release the spring loaded lock pin making sure that it reengages. Check to make sure the swivel is in a fixed position.
Swivel Base Break Away Reset
The Cannon Swivel bases feature a unique break away system which allows the top plate to rotate while in the locked position. The break away feature will help prevent damage to the downrigger and boat in the event that the downrigger boom or ball would strike an object. If this should occur, the mounting plate of the swivel pedestal will turn, giving way to the unexpected load. The mounting plate can be reset back to any position by following these steps:
1)Locate the 3/8” bolts on the bottom of the top plate (See Figure 1).
2)With the pedestal locked in any position, loosen the bolts
3)Rotate the mounting plate back to the desired position.
4)Tighten the 3/8” bolts to 25
Note: The downrigger weight must be stowed before resetting the swivel pedestal mount.
