"The mounting strips are excellent and easy to use."
By: Dave F
Does everything as advertised. Throws Dokkens PLENTY high and far to give dog a good look at the arc and fall easily out to 250 yards on flat terrain. This particular box launcher definately outperforms the two other main competitors' box launchers. The mounting strips are excellent and easy to use. No tools.

"Throws birds hard."

GSP,Pointers,Labs,Pudelpointers. Hunts. Competes. Throws birds hard. Perfect for Versatile Gun Dog Training, probably a little lacking for competition labs.

"These truly are the only launchers that a person needs for birds, dummys, and serious bird dog training."
By: Mark Rossow From AZ
Retrievers,Pointers,and Flushers. Hunts. Family pet. Although I have a big Zinger Winger I've now purchased two of the Uplanders as they are fantastic. So far I've yet to use one of my Uplanders to launch a live bird, but I'm fairly certain that reducing the launcher from 4 springs to 2 springs will launch a bird with minimal issues. To date I've been using my Uplanders for retriever training with canvas fire hose dummy's and the launcher tosses them somewhere between 10 to 15 yards and easily high enough for a dog to mark the dummy. My use of the launchers is with the Dogtra remote releases, and the entire system is truly excellent...place one launcher close and another far away. Fantastic, quality made, versatile launcher. These truly are the only launchers that a person needs for birds, dummys, and serious bird dog training.

2. Align the metal arm bushings to the box frame holes and install all four bolts and lock nuts. Make sure the bolts are facing inside and the nuts are facing outside. Tighten the bolts so that the metal arms still pivot freely.
