Home / Product Catalog / Self-Leveling Tabs (SLT)



Even small boats need trim tabs! Now you can enjoy the durability of Bennett trim tabs in a quick and easy, transom-only trim tab system. There are no hydraulics needed – simply mount the two actuators and trim tabs and you’re on your way to a smoother ride.

The SLT reacts instantly to boat speed and water pressure by adding trim when it’s needed. At slower speeds, when the boat is trying to get on plane, the actuators hold the trim tabs down, which lifts the stern and simultaneously puts the boat at planing attitude. On plane, and as the boat’s speed increases, water pressure pushes the tabs up. You will enjoy a smoother ride while the SLT does all the work.

Self-Leveling Tabs (SLT)
