In a sport as competitive as tournament fishing, a tenth-of-an-ounce can mean the difference between cashing a check and going home empty handed. That is why New Pro Products developed the patented V-T2 Livewell Ventilation System; a unique, low-cost livewell modification that will simplify your fish care management by addressing all stressors that harm fish in the livewell and eliminate costly dead-fish penalties.
The New Pro Products V-T2 Livewell Ventilation System allows continuous oxygen to flow inside of your livewell and provides a release for heat and other metabolic gases, which can be harmful to fish. Incredibly easy to install, the V-T2 mounts flush to your livewell lid.
In addition, the V-T2 needs no electricity, so it won't tax your already-overloaded batteries. Universally adaptable to any livewell, the V-T2 is an easy and cost-effective way to ensure that your fish make it the scales in optimum condition.
To install the V-T2's, you will need a hand drill, a drill bit set, a Phillip's screw driver, a 5/16" wrench, a 3" Bi-Metal hole saw and a garbage bag to be placed in your livewell to catch the shavings from the cuts.
It is recommended to cut the holes in your livewell lid(s) as close to the middle or center of the livewell lid and directly over the water to provide optimum circulation. The can be placed a little forward, to the back, or to the sides as needed to meet your individual needs, but as much over the center of the water as possible. For livewells with two individual lids place one V-T2 in each lid.
For livewells with just one large lid, install both V-T2's in the lid and evenly space them out. Be careful to allow for needed clearance, so that the sleeve of the V-T2 will clear the livewell frame or any lid lift or locking mechanism. It is recommended to make the first few cuts or revolutions with the hole saw in reverse to cut the carpet, then place the drill in forward to cut through the lids. This will keep the carpet from threading out and make a clean cut. Place the V-T2's in the cut holes and use the VT-2 as your pattern for drilling the holes with a 9/64" drill bit. Attach the V-T2's with the provided marine fasteners. Tighten the nylon nuts by hand and do so slowly to prevent gallowing, which is a process that will cause the nut to meld and break the bolt.
