What Are Monster Studs?
Monster Studs are an adhesive marine fastening system that revolutionizes the way marine equipment and devices are mounted to boats and yachts. Our adhesive marine fasteners are a type of marine hardware that will allow anyone to mount anything anywhere on boats or yachts without drilling holes, using screws or damaging surfaces. Our permanent fastening system eliminates the need to use two hands with screws and a screw gun, while also trying to hold whatever you're mounting in place! The best part about Monster Studs is that whatever is mounted will reliably stay where it's supposed to, while also still being capable of quick and easy removal and reinstallation as needed; without affecting the permanent mounting points or mounting surface. Typically, once Monster Studs have been installed, removal and reinstallation of any device can be performed with one hand and a small wrench.

How do I Mount my Equipment?
Installing Monster Studs is super quick and easy. Watch our easy-to-follow How To videos with step by step directions on how to reliably mount all your marine equipment and devices efficiently and safely. When you install anything using Monster Studs, rest assured that whatever it is, it will stay mounted and never come loose unless you intentionally remove it. Studley has your back!
Which Adhesive Works Best with Monster Studs?
Studley recommends using 3M 5200 for horizontal mounting and JBWeld MarineWeld for vertical mounting, where a fast set up or curing time is critical. Remember to thoroughly prep all surfaces prior to installation. Leaving gelcoat or paint in between Monster Studs and your mounting surface is definitely not the correct way to install Monster Studs. Sanding to bare fiberglass or non painted/coated material is essential in guaranteeing a permanent and reliable bond to your mounting surface.

Yes! This is one of the best features and one of the major benefits of using Monster Studs! Our adhesive marine fastening system allows you to quickly and easily remove and reinstall whatever is mounted and typically with only one hand; any boat accessories, devices, pumps, or rigging without compromising or altering the strength or integrity of the actual mounting points of contact to the mounting surface. Our worry-free adhesive marine hardware eliminates complicated and often physically strenuous, time-consuming removals, replacements, reinstallations and arduous maintenance tasks and repairs.
