On many boats, coolers are kept under leaning posts, gunwales or other hard to reach areas. Cooler Slides make it easy to load and unload the cooler. The slides are made of non-corrosive starboard material with stainless steel spring latches which secures the slide in the retracted position. It is designed to be simple and functional, but allows better access to your cooler. The space required to install the coolers is the length of the cooler plus 2" inches and the height of the cooler plus an 1 1/4".
