SeaStar Solutions/Teleflex Safe-T Quick-Connect Rotary Steering System 

The Safe-T QC rotary steering kit provides quick and responsive three-turn steering with easy installation using a patented, no tools process. Note: requires cable connection at the helm.

Traditional SeaStar Solutions mechanical steering is a popular choice for sterndrives, inboards and other power assisted applications. It is ideal for power-steering boats where No FeedBack systems are not required. The Safe-T Quick Connect Steering System, a rotary steering kit, will cut installation time by 50%. In addition, its compact design requires a minimum space behind the dashboard. This safe, reliable steering system’s unique design offers ‘no tools’ installation.

How to Measure Steering Cables “Measure Twice. Order Once.”

Replacement of Existing Cable: Locate the part number stamped on old cable’s plastic jacket. If this is not possible, measure for the replacement cable as follows:


For Rotary Steering Cable Replacement, Measure Existing Cable as follows: Measure plastic cable jacket (“Y” dimension, shown in above drawing) in inches, add 18″, and round up to the next foot. Order that cable length.

New Rotary Steering Installation: Measure cable routing path from wheel center line to engine connection, as follows:

  • A = Center line of wheel to gunwale (or deck, if routed downward)
  • B = Dash to transom
  • C = Gunwale to centerline of cable connection at centered tiller.

For Cable Installations through the Engine Tilt Tube: Add A, B & C + 6″, then round up to the next foot. Order that length cable.

For Cables Mounted to Transom, Splashwell or Stringer: Add A, B & C, then subtract 6″ and round up to the next foot. Order that length cable.



The diagram above shows a single-cable, starboard drive push-pull mechanical cable system. If your mechanical system is different than the one depicted and/or you have any questions about mechanical steering after reviewing this guide, please contact Teleflex (Mechanical) Technical Service at (610)-495-7011 or

Cable routings (such as those found on pontoon boats) may vary from this drawing. Confirm length by laying a garden hose or similar object) along cable path and measure run from wheel to engine connection point.
