    I put Loctite on ours, I have them adjusted so you can remove the platform without moving the set screws. Not crazy about the design either.

    The noise bugs me as well. I have a 2012 and when I dock it with the transom out the platform is constantly bouncing as waves roll in. I can hear it from far away. Dealer says the slop is so the stress isn't fully translated to the transom??? I considered tightening the screws up but haven't yet. I believe the bouncing resulted in the loss of one locking clip already...

    Yeah, good concept but poorly executed. Apparently they thought so to since the '14 models have a new design. Sadly the new brackets don't retro to the older boats due to required reinforcement to the transom. The bouncing will just get worse over time as those pin holes open up...

    My pin holes have no opened up at all and mine is 5 years old, I have also not lost any pins due to this issue either or any other issue

    oh boy, up at 530 to get the kids off to school on the first day...... mine got so worn down that I laid down a couple weld beads on the back and front of the platform brackets. ground them down for a snug fit.

    Since no set screws were installed on my boat... my platform has had the opportunity to move around a lot more. You may be fine since it sounds like your boat was properly prepared at delivery. I still think the design was poorly executed though.

    I had a chance to take a look at a '14 Mobius this weekend at I noticed the platform was solid, they've gone to a new design of bracket which I think would be fairly simple to swap out. It's all steel and there is no play in the design at all, very good improvement.

    As I was looking at my platform I noticed some empty threaded holes... should these have set screws in them or something?

    I have the same bracket and get the same slop.

    !st throw the screws from the factory in the tool box and save for something else. Go get SS screws that thread in there with a nice bolt or scew head.

    Third time out and the factory ones striped out and the dealer had to drill and extract them out.

    Now i have the screws and they work pretty well.

    Also i would suggest tossing the little spring loaded slide pins on the platform.

    In july at WTW i sheared one right off and the platform tried to come out of the bracket and gouge the rear of the boat. Thankfully i noticed it and called an end to the day at 530pm.

    I went and bought bolts with nylon in them to use for the lower bracket.

    I think what happens is when you tighten the adjustment pins it puts so much pressure on the spring loaded pins it just broke it in half.

    On my LSV i never had an issue with the spring loaded platform pins, but on the Mojo i can only assume it broke in half.
