Add extra stability to your bimini and dodger frames or just provide an extra handhold for guests with support struts and grab rails. Sailrite® stocks grab rails and struts in a wide variety of sizes, all of which are made from top-of-the-line materials to ensure long-term performance and corrosion-resistance, including 304 stainless steel tubing and 316 stainless steel hardware. This ensures that your hardware will maintain its bright finish and stand up to constant exposure to the elements.
Our support struts come in either rigid or adjustable styles in various sizes from our store. The rigid option provides the best strength, but comes at the cost of easy knockdown. Choose the collapsible struts for easier tear down, as they feature a patented design that folds flat for easy storage. To install a collapsible grab rail and rigid support strut, you can reference this video series put together by the experts at Sailrite. Using these hardware options in your dodger or bimini also eliminates the need for webbing straps.
We also offer complete grab rail kits that are designed to help you increase safety on your vessel by adding an extra hand hold anywhere you find yourself reaching for stability. These grab rails for boats are also commonly implemented in do-it-yourself dodgers as an added safety feature. Each kit comes with enough materials to install one grab rail, including the tubing, side mounts, leather, thread, hardware and installation instructions.
