The trailering strut allows the top to be stored down lower, closer to the deck, providing better storage for travel. The brace kit keeps the top up and out of the way in the stored position when not is use. The brace kit can be used for travel. The trailering strut is often used in combination with the brace kit to provide addition support while trailering. A brace kit and/or trailer strut can be used for any style of boat and comes with a pole clip.
