Frog Hooks has provided thousands of private boat owners and marina operators with the best boat docking equipment on the market. Our docking systems aren’t just innovative, they’re also safe, easy, and tremendously durable. Frog Hooks makes the boarding and docking process both safer and easier for family and pets. Eliminate lines and better protect your investment.


Frog Hooks system provides flexible configurations from 20″ to 84″ away from the dock allowing your engine(s) to be up out of the water. The boarding platforms are made of galvanized steel with non-slip treads for safer boarding. Platforms attach to brackets which are secured to the dock using galvanized screws. Frog Hooks are ideal for docking in tidal locations, as well as lakes, rivers, and ponds. Frog Hooks can be adapted for high-docks using special “drop-down” brackets. Key Sets are the mechanism we use to secure the platforms to the towing rings of your boat.

Frog Hooks also offers adjustable docking systems to accommodate variable boat beams.


Frog Hooks have survived storms and hurricanes including Camille, David, Andrew, Floyd, Hugo, Bob, Gloria and Sandy. Because our product is strong, the docks and boats came through undamaged.

Our Founders: The Delauras

In 1977 Paddy and Fred Delaura enlisted themselves on a mission to find a docking solution to many of the problems they faced. They spent years perfecting what we know Frog Hooks are today, and we owe her and her husband many thanks for such an amazing product. In 2019 Paddy decided to pass along the business to a family of passionate boating enthusiasts to carry on her Frog Hooks legacy. We are extremely proud to be able to carry on the business and continue providing solutions to our fellow boaters.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I know what size I need?

Figuring out what size you need is actually easier than you think! All you have to do is use a measuring tape and measure the distance between the transom towing rings on the back of your boat to the dock. Always make sure to take your measurement when the engine is raised.

Are all the parts galvanized?

Yes, all of our parts come with standard galvanization at no extra charge.

Will my marina allow them?

It is important to check with your marina before making a purchase because sometimes they are not permitted for use.

How long do they last?

All of our models last a very long time because of their anti-rusting capabilities. After a couple of years, some of our customers like to replace their treads or key sets at a low cost, which may have worn out over the years. The platforms and brackets rarely need replacement and will last as long as you keep your boat!

Do you offer replacement parts?

Yes, we offer many options for replacement parts which can be found on our parts page. We suggest replacing your treads every couple of years to maintain superior safety.

What payment options do you accept?

All major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express) are accepted. We also accept Venmo, Zelle, check or cash (for pickup orders).
