The following review was written by the editorial department of Chesapeake Bay Magazine.

The V-Lock is a strong, secure, low-profile mounting system that can hold just about any accessory you might need on a boat. Made of marine-grade aluminum the V-Lock consists of a receptacle, or base, that mounts on a flat surface with four screws or bolts and a separate locking insert plate that can be adapted to hold most boating accessories, including electronics, grills, drink holders, rod holders, bait trays, floodlights, antennas, you name it. The base and insert set is $48, additional inserts are $15, extra bases are $35.
