Why a SUP Lock? This paddleboard lock system is a great, simple way to protect your investment ($$$$) in your SUP. We know there are times when you'd like to leave your SUP unattended - outside on the dock or pier, on your car's roof rack, behind your house, and more. This SUP lock will deter would-be thieves and give you some peace of mind while you grab a cup of coffee, pick up a few groceries, or leave your paddleboard stored in your yard.
What are the parts of the Paddleboard Lock? The Dock Locks SUP lock consists of 2 essential components:
How does the Paddleboard Lock work? The SUP lock works like a typical cable bike lock, but since a paddleboard doesn't have a place to loop a cable lock through (like a bike frame), the system includes a unique way to affix the lock to your paddleboard, that's the Dock Locks Jaw. The Jaw is about the shape of a key. Its metal tip clamps open or shut, and clamps shut on your paddleboard in either of 2 places (leash plug or fin box, explained below). When the cable lock is threaded through the metal loop of the Jaw, the Jaw's tip (clamped shut) cannot be opened. Together, the system prevents removal of the Jaw from your SUP, and so you can't remove your paddleboard from whatever the cable is locked to.
How do I set up the SUP Lock? To lock your paddleboard, (1) clamp the Jaw to your paddleboard (leash plug or fin box), (2) thread the cable lock through the loop on the Jaw, and (3) lock the cable to something strong (a tree, your roof rack, deck or dock, etc.)
Where do I clamp the Jaw to my paddleboard? 2 options:
How do I lock multiple SUPs together? To lock up multiple paddleboards you can use 1 cable with multiple Jaws (add Jaws at checkout). Clamp separate Jaws to each paddleboard, thread the same cable through all the Jaws, and lock the cable to something strong. This is a practical, functional lock solution for multiple paddleboards like SUP yoga studios, paddleboard rentals, and when you have multiple SUPs on your car's roof rack. But remember, the cable lock is 10 feet long and coiled, so depending on your SUPs and setup you'll need more than 1 cable lock.
If you need ONLY an additional Jaw (no cable), get one here: Dock Locks Jaw | Locking Clamp
Paddle Lock. New for 2016 is a paddle lock so you can lock up your paddle with your SUP. The Paddle Lock is a sold-separately aluminum piece that clasps around the circumference of your paddle's shaft. When clasped shut, 2 holes line up through which you thread the cable lock. Once threaded, the Paddle Lock can't open, so your paddle can't be removed from the cable. The diameter of the lock is wide enough for all paddles but not too wide so that it can be slipped off your paddle, and the interior of the lock is padded to protect your paddle from damage. You can buy the Paddle Lock here or add it at checkout.
Can a paddleboard lock be used with this rack?
Yes, for this 2 SUP stand, you could use a SUP lock to secure the boards, to the stand, and/or with the stand to another stationary item. Dock Locks works well: https://www.storeyourboard.com/sup-lock-system-dock-locks/ - the base system comes with a locking cable, and one jaw clamp to attach to one board's leash plug or fin box, and the locking cable; if you have more boards to lock up, you can purchase additional jaw clamps, 1 for each board, and use the same locking cable to secure them together.
I'm very happy with this product. It was easy to set up and install and now I can lock my SUP anyplace (on the car, to a friend's car, to a pole, etc). I feel this is much more secure than the locking straps with wire reinforcement I was using previously. I just wish there was a adapter so I could also use this for my kayak.
Very pleased with our purchase. The product matched the description and is a quality product.
Little bit hard to “uncurl the cable” but all in all , I think this system is good!!
The patented part that attaches to the boards works great. The spiral cord is too short and I will probably have to get a longer one.
Does exactly as advertised.
Very simple but effective system.
All of the components are very high quality and hold up to adverse weather conditions.
Easy to use
I'm very pleased with the customer service I received from STORE YOUR BOARD! When I called about the SUP locking system, which was not shipped in the same shipment as the 2 board stand, I received the SUP system, with 2 locking 'keys, within only 2 or 3 days! Excellent Customer Service!
Item came as described but lock had no instructions on how to set the code. Had to buy a separate lock to run through the part that attaches to the paddleboard. Other then that it works great.
Living at the beach, we need to lock up some of our boards that are outside and for travel. This solves the problem of theft, although someone could conceivably destroy the boards in the act of stealing them.
Haven't gotten to use it yet but it seems like a great product
I was looking for a way to lock up my board since I have to store it outside. This is really easy to use and very convenient if you need to lock your board when you are on the go.
Very happy with the product. It is as advertised.
Would be better if it was longer. I had to reorder another and put them together to get the right length.
Great quality and simple to use now I simply lock the boards to our beach walk way and leave them protected!
Flexible -- and easy to use.
lock works well...just have to remember to take it off the board before you paddle as if it is stepped on, it will damage the board.
The idea is great but the clip on locks do not stay on as the cord is too thin and they fall out! So now I use the cord without the clips to tie my kayaks!
Your SUP Lock System is an absolutely terrific product. The design for attaching the locks to the board is incredibly clever in its simplicity and ease of use. The high quality of the materials for the lock and cable will ensure years of reliable use. Your SUP Lock System is well worth the price. Everyone who owns a standup paddle board should have one.
Easy to use. Working well.
The cable coil tension is very strong. The cable should be straighter or have less coil tension. Hard to manage and feed thru locking loops.
The SUP lock works well. It would be nice if the piece that fastens to the board was attached to the cable somehow. I'm afraid I will accidentally drop it in the water at some point. So far so good, ghP
Well made product. Video was helpful on how to install. My SUP is Safe!
I love the Dock Locks SUP lock system. My wife and I leave our boards locked up under our house now without fear. Makes grabbing them for a quick ride so much easier than when we had to lock them in our storage room. I highly recommend this locking system!
Could not be easier!
This product is the BEST. It is extremely well made and durable. This combination lock is so easy to use and gives you a peace of mind when leaving your board while you are away. Lock it to a tree, pole, or anything available. What a great invention and so easy to use.
Exactly what I need for securing my paddleboard when out of town on trip. Excellent price, quick shipping
I originally bought this to lock up my paddle board in the back of my truck, but also found it is a great way to secure my board when its at home as well. I decided to get 3 more locks, 2 for me and one for my niece. she loves it as well... great product!
