NavPod AngleGuard & StraightGuard

AngleGuards & StraightGuards are for mounting SailPods, SystemPods or InstrumentPods at the helm. We recommend StraightGuards for mounting a single InstrumentPod, or when forward space at the helm is limited. Although we typically recommend AngleGuards for mounting a chartplotter at the helm, a StraightGuard can also be used for this purpose (and thanks to the more forgiving viewing angles of modern electronics displays, an angled mounting surface is more preferred than necessary). A StraightGuard can also be the preferred choice when electronics will be more frequently viewed from a seated position (rather than standing). We recommend Single-Bend AngleGuards for mounting a single chartplotter display in a SailPod, or a chartplotter display with up to two instruments in a single SystemPod housing. The angled mounting surface of Single-Bend AngleGuards provides the optimal viewing angle for a skipper standing at the helm. For mounting a chartplotter and three to four instruments, we recommend Double-Bend AngleGuards. The chartplotter is mounted on the lower, angled section of the guard, and three to four instruments can be mounted in an InstrumentPod on the upper, straight section of the guard. Most commonly, pedestals will accommodate a pedestal guard with a width of either 9.5" or 12" (measured from center to center of each tube).

When purchasing a new StraightGuard or AngleGuard, it's important to make sure that the width of the guard matches the width of your existing pedestal, and when purchasing a NavPod, it's important to make sure that you're choosing a NavPod that matches the width of your pedestal guard (9.5" or 12" wide). If your existing pedestal is neither 9.5" nor 12" wide, please call or email us to discuss some potential adaptive options. Pedestals are also designed to accommodate different diameters of tubing (most commonly 1", 1.125", and 1.25"). When purchasing a new StraightGuard or AngleGuard, it's important to make sure that your existing pedestal will accommodate the diameter of the new guard. We do have Top Plate products available that allow for a pedestal with existing 1" or 1.125" diameter tubing to be upgraded to a 1.25" diameter guard. We offer StraightGuards and AngleGuards in 1" and 1.25" diameters. Guards with a 1.25" diameter provide a sturdier handhold in rough waters, and allow more space for running wires and cables. Our 1.25" guards come with mounting feet included, while our 1" guards do NOT come with mounting feet.
