Installation
Can the tower be moved to another boat?
Once the final steps of installing the tower are complete the width between the rear legs is permanently set and can not be changed. The only way a tower can be moved to another boat is if the rear leg mounting width is exactly the same.
Do I need to reinforce my boat for a tower?
Most competition ski and wakeboard boats, as well as more expensive boat brands like Sea Ray and Cobalt, have decks which are at least 3/8" thick and do not need to be reinforced. If your deck is thinner than 3/8" you should reinforce it with additional fiberglass to build it up to 3/8". Fiberglass kits are available at many online stores including www.WestMarine.com, www.iboats.com in addition to local boat supply companies. Some of our customers have added a 1/4" or 3/8" piece of plywood under the deck attached with 3M Model 5200 Marine adhesive and then covered this with fiberglass. This is the best possible solution as it adds significant strength for the mounting location. This would be recommended for Bayliner, and similar brands where the fiberglass thickness may be closer to 1/4" or 3/16" thick.
How do I mount the base of my tower to a curved surface?
We asked other tower companies how they address mounting to curved surfaces and heard it was no problem to mount a flat plate to a curved surface. That was not a good enough answer to a bunch of engineers so we developed another industry first, the Monster Paws. These are mounting pads that not only contour to the curve of your boat they also greatly reduce the stress at the holes which further protects your boat.
How do I run speaker and light wires through my Monster tower?
Holes for running speaker wire can be drilled one inch from the welds on the front or rear legs. MTK towers come pre-drilled. Holes can also be added to the top section three inches in from the welds in the straight cross bar of the top section. If you add top section speakers or lights the wire will exit the top of the rear legs and enter the side of the top section. This short "bridge" will connect the top section to the legs electrically. Detailed wiring instructions are included in our speaker installation manual.
What if I need help installing my tower or want someone else to install my new tower?
All that is needed to install the Monster Tower is a drill, drill bits and an adjustable wrench. All other hardware and Allen wrenches are provided along with a step by step instruction manual. We do recommend using socket wrenches instead of an adjustable wrench but either will get the job done just fine. If you have questions about installation we are happy to help, give us a call at 877-77Tower or email us at Support@MonsterTower.com. Some our customers prefer to have their towers and accessories professionally installed and locally supported. Please contact an authorized preferred dealer for local support as well as innovative tower accessories from leading manufacturers.
Will I be able to install the accessories on my own?
The accessories (speakers and wakeboard racks) are very easy to install and will come with instructions to assist you. The Garage Wakeboard Rack requires attachment to your wall with screws. The wakeboard racks attach to your tower with just the use of hex wrenches. The speakers will require some wiring and some drilling, but again that will be outlined in the installation instructions for that specific product.
Will the tower crack my gel coat or damage my boat?
The most common cause of a tower damaging the gel coat is abuse. The more accessories you put on the tower (racks & boards, speakers, lights, etc) the more stress there will be on the boat. Also, never let someone climb on a wakeboard tower; not only is it very dangerous but it could cause damage to the boat's gel coat. The Monster Tower is very durable and uses Heim joints which greatly reduce the possibility of stress cracks. Monster Tower is not liable for any incidental or consequential damage caused by installation or use of the tower.
Can I purchase a new center section only in order to place this in a different boat?
Yes! We Do sell the header sections if you need to replace one. Please just give us a call to place the order.

Product Info
How can the Monster Towers cost so much less than comparable towers?
We are able to produce the highest quality tower possible and make it affordable by leveraging relationships and capitalizing on "economies of scale." As part of the Marine Accessories Corporation family, we have access to our sister company Great Lakes Boat Top for custom development and great deals on our canvas.
What do I need to do to maintain my Monster Tower wakeboard tower?
The only maintenance needed on a Monster Tower wakeboard tower is to occasionally use a mild soap and water. If you use your boat in salt water we recommend spraying the Heim joints with CRC or WD-40 after each use. You should also check the bolts periodically for tightness.
What is included with each Monster Tower?
Your new Monster Tower will include everything you need to install and enjoy your new wakeboard tower. Each tower includes the top section (called a header) with swivel tow point, two front and two rear legs (MTK has only one starboard and port leg), four Heim joints and bases, backing plates, and all the hardware needed to attach the tower to your boat. Allen wrenches and our detailed tower specific step by step instruction manuals are also included. The wakeboard racks and other tower accessories are not included but can be ordered separately.
What is the wakeboard tower tubing size and what is the material used?
All of our towers are made from 2-1/2" diameter aluminum tubing. (excl. HS1 Tower)
