17 Inch OFFBOARD? Shields

(Locks sold separately)


Pest Restriction for Small to Medium-sized Boats


Banish Unwanted Guests OFFBoard Marine Vermin Shield?

OFFBOARD? is a spring-loaded device created to lock onto your mooring lines to keep the critters off board. The OFFBOARD? Pest Restriction Device has been selected as one of 10 companies to receive Houseboat Magazine?s 2005 Ultimate Accessory Award.?


NOTHING ELSE CAN DAMPEN a day of boating like discovering unwanted guests on board - furry unwanted guests.


Pests, such as mice and rats, can gain access to your boat via mooring lines, and once they're on board, they're not easy to get rid of. Treating the problem at its source, the OFFBoard Marine Vermin Shield attaches to and surrounds your mooring line with a disc-like shield and creates a simple, yet effective barrier for pests.

Benefits of using OFFBOARD?:

  • It easily fits on mooring lines of various sizes.

  • Can be inserted or removed on a mooring line that is in use. First secure the boat, and then attach the devices where they are most effective.

  • The devices will always remain perpendicular to the mooring line even when the line is in the water.

  • They can be locked to prevent theft in an unattended environment.

  • They will not dent or bend with repeated use.

  • They can be stored safely when not in use.

  • They can be used in both fresh as well as salt water environments.

Note: All components are stainless steel and can be used in a salt water environment. The lock for the 15 inch shield is only for FRESH water and can not be used in a salt water environment.

How to determine the right shield?

The shield are available in 10-, 15- and 17-inch sets specially designed for mooring lines attached to larger boats.

To determine which shield is the right one, look at the mooring line sizes used on the boat.

If the line is 1 1/2 inch to 2 1/2 inches, use the 17th shield. These boats are typically larger than 100 ft in length to over 300ft).?Otherwise get the 10?or 15 Inch shields.?


(If the line is less than 1/2 inch Use the 10 inch Shield.

?If the line is from 1/2 to one inch, use the 15 inch shield and select one of four inserts for line sizing. The inserts are used to enable the user to use the shield if their line is 1/2 inch, 5/8 inch, 3/4 inch, or 7/8 inch in diameter. No insert is needed if their line is one inch.?We include all four inserts with each shield so that the boat owner can select which one they need. Sometimes 5/8 inch line isn't 5/8 inch depending on ware and age of the line.? The 15 inch shield will fit on boats from 26ft to 80ft in length).
