I am trying to decided what is the best way to prevent platform movement in the bracket. I see that they have basically drilled holes near the top and inserted retaining screws on the new brackets. What have others done and do you have pics?

Since I only remove my platform once a year when I put it away for winter I tap composite shims between the 2 pieces of the bracket. Rock solid, but difficult to remove.Dan

I don't even notice or worry about it, every tournament boat i've had the platform moves.2007 Mobius LSV

it's sad that when I go to the boat dealership, the 'bu's don't seem to exhibit the same movement that all the skiers products do.
I have done the shim thing as well since I don't have to remove the platform in the current garage setup. I'll post in the am. simple, cheap, but a pita to remove..'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

So i gotta ask, why is this an issue? What's the big deal if the platform moves?2007 Mobius LSV

Aside from the annoyance of it rattling, or moving every single time someone steps on it?

As a few others have done, I also used the plastic toilet wedges and they work great. Pound them in and snap them off, you are good to go. I never remove my platform and it has been rock solid for the past couple seasons. If you remove your platform often it might be a little bit more of a problem.2008 SUPRA Launch 22 SSV
