PowerStick-53" Gen2 UNBOXING [The ONLY Powered GoPro Boat Mount Designed Specifically for Your Boat!] Click Here to Learn More

 

LOOPING: Built-into most every GoPro, VIRB and other action camera is a feature called Looping. Because you have PowerStick-53" and constant external power to your camera, you can use this powerful feature. Looping allows you to:
1) Always Be Recording, so you Don't miss the shot!
2) Only Save Good Video, so bad video won't fill up your SD card.
3) Edit and Share Movies FAST!

 

Silicone Rainproof Putty: Keep your GoPro, VIRB, other action camera and your YOLOtek gear dry with SRP.  Click Here to Learn More

 

External Power from PowerStick-53" to GoPro Hero 7, 6 or 5! The same as when you apply external power in your truck or at home, remove the camera from the "frame" (wrap around plastic), then remove the power door and place the camera back into the frame. First time you remove the power door, it will seem a bit odd, but after a few times you will be an expert. Without the power door, the GoPro is NOT waterproof. Use our available Silicone Rainproof Putty to keep everything dry.

Bow/Front Navlight Port 3-pin to 2-pin rewire About 5% of boats have a 3-pin connector for the front red/green bow light navlight port, due to a "Map Light". Very rare for anyone to use that feature and it must be re-wired to use YOLOtek products. The good news is, it is a simple re-wire. Click here to download a one page 3-pin re-wire.

A great customer made a video to show how to perform a quick re-wire to make it work like a standard 2-pin to power YOLOtek gear and all standard red/green bow lights. Let us know if you have any questions. Thank you!

 

Troubleshooting: Having Trouble Compressing Sections & Feels Like Wires are Binding [This is rare, but simple to fix. Extend the stick fully, then compress the top section and lock quick release. Then and only then, compress the bottom section. Do NOT force the sections together with force, as you may kink the wires and may be permanent.

If this doesn't work, then extend fully and lock quick release and leave overnight. In the morning release the top quick release and slowly compress the top section. Once this is done, then release bottom quick release and slowly compress the bottom section. If this does not work, then call us 800-488-5512.]
