I’ve used 12 of these for my floating dock and 1 on the dock ramp...really easy to install just 6 screws and some washers. Also used the ones with bumpers. Great product and can’t beat the free delivery.

The floats are great, just as advertized and so far they seem to work really well. One of the three we ordered came with a two-inch puncture hole in it — looked like a forklift end or something like that, since they shipped naked, not within a box. We patched with caulking and hope for the best.
