The patented Z-LAUNCH™ Watercraft Launch Cord makes solo watercraft launching easier than you've ever experienced. The no-hassle launch cord, made of premium elastics, uses automatically adjusting tension when you back your boat, jet ski, or tow tube into the water, so it won't jerk your watercraft around when you pull the trailer forward. Expandable to more than 20', the Z-LAUNCH™ Watercraft Launch Cord attaches in just 3 steps. Fasten a hook to your boat, connect a steel ring to the winch, and lock the winch. You're ready for the smoothest watercraft launching on the water.

Endorsed and used by professional angler Timmy Horton. Used by the majority of BASS and FLW fishing professionals.

  1. Attach the spring loaded clasp to the Eye hook of your watercraft
  2. Attach the stainless steel ring to your trailer winch hook. (We recommend pulling out approximately 2-3 feet of your winch belt before locking the winch)
  3. Lock your trailer winch

After steps 1, 2, and 3 are complete, detach all safety and tie down straps from your trailer to prepare your boat for launch. Slowly back your trailer and boat into the water until boat floats backwards. Slowly pull vehicle forward. This will cause the Z-LAUNCH™ cord to expand as well as pull your boat towards the ramp. As the craft comes to rest at the boat ramp, continue to pull vehicle forward until trailer is clearly out of the water. Now you can detach the Z-LAUNCH™ cord by releasing the trailer winch and unsnapping the ring and clasp from the trailer and watercraft. Secure your boat to the dock or shore and park your vehicle.


  • Available Lengths: 10' (Boat to 16'), 15' (Boats to 22'), 20' (Boats to 35')

Wish both ends had the snip clip my only complaint

Easy launch

I purchased the 20ft one so it would not come back and hit the trailer. It works great.


Needs a better way t o connect the ring, the metal is to weak.

John E.

Works as advertised now I have no problem at the boat ramp alone

Works great, get the next size up.

I just wish I had gotten the longest one even though I did get the right one for my boat size according to the chart. You have to let out quite a bit of the boat strap from your winch. If you get a longer one you won't have to do so much of that.
