6 Superb seatbox accessories

by Angling Times |

Daiwa Seatbox Cover

What they say: Protects your seat and trays in transit. This 42cm x 30cm x 17cm cover has a Velcro adjuster to ensure a snug fit.

What we say: Why spend good money on a box, only to see it get bashed about it transit or in the shed? It also keeps trays and drawers in place on bumpy rides, and stops water ingress on the way from the car to your peg.

What they say: Available in three sizes, these trays will fit all round-legged 36mm seatboxes on the market, providing vital protection for your bait, rig bits and any other essential items.

What we say: Rain or shine, this easy-to-fit tray cover will keep your bait in tip-top condition for the duration of the session. Held in place by a solid clamp, it’s super-simple to take down when not needed, and four handwheels make removal a doodle for those trips when it’s not needed.

What we say: Vital for when multiple keepnets are needed on summer commercial matches. Extra knuckles can be bought separately to attach other accessories.

Maver Signature Double-Braced Umbrella Arm

What they say: A robust and super-secure attachment for your umbrella. Fits 25mm, 30mm or 36mm legs.

What we say: The length of the arm means your brolly pole can be positioned far enough from the box so that it doesn’t get in the way, yet close enough that you don’t get wet. Be careful your box doesn’t take off in windy weather, mind!

Price: £18.99, www.mavermatch.co.uk
