Product Description

Safety first! The Universal Canoe Locking System is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to keep your canoe safe and secure from the bad guys. It is a pair of steel cables that work together to wrap around your boat and a fixed object to allow you to lock your boat in place. If you're like us at StoreYourBoard, you have a huge time and monetary investment in your canoe and a stolen canoe would be devastating. With so much at risk, there is no excuse not to properly safeguard your boat. 

The Universal Canoe Locking System consists of (2) 3/16" coil steel cables - thick enough that most cable cutters will never get through. These cables have been Vinyl coated to protect any scratching on your boat, rack, or car. Each cable has two loops to it: a locking loop and a boat loop. The locking loop is a small loop in the cable that is used to pass the pad lock through to lock up both cables together. The boat loop is a 16" diameter loop that is designed to loop over the nose and tail of your kayak.

This canoe lock system is great for use in a variety of situations. For instance:

  • Lock your boat to a tree or pier support post
  • Lock your boat to an outdoor rack you have
  • Lock your boat to a roof rack on a vehicle


Sizing: This lock system comes in three different sizes. The Small Kayak Lock is 9ft lock and is designed for smaller kayaks. The Large Kayak Lock is 12ft long and is better for longer kayaks. The Canoe Lock is 14ft long for canoes. 

How it works:
The key to this canoe locking system is that canoes are tapered in size from the center out to the bow (nose) and stern (tail). Meaning, the width of a canoe in the center is always greater than the width of the canoe at the bow and stern. This allows the boat loops (discussed above) to slip over the bow and stern of your canoe, but not all the way over the center. Therefore, you can slip the boat loop of each cable over the bow and stern, then loop the long cable around a fixed object (like a rack, tree, car roof rack) and lock the two cables together on their locking loops. As long as there isn't enough "slack" in the cable, the boat loops can't come off your boat and your boat will be safely locked down! See the image below for an illustration.

Q:
How do the lock work, when securing the kayak on a dock that has dock posts?
A:
For these Kayak Locks, the system includes two cables, that each have a small loop at one end and a larger hoop at the other end. One cable is longer than the other - but you will be using both to secure the boat to your dock posts as follows:

  1. Place one of the cable's large loops over your kayak's bow;
  2. Then place the 2nd cable's large loop over your stern;
  3. Use the longer cable to wrap around your dock posts or around another stationary item;
  4. Once you have done so, take that cable's small-loop end, and meet it up with the small loop end of the 2nd cable
  5. Attach a pad lock to the two small loops, securing them together.
Your boat is now secured to a stationary object.
Q:
My canoe is 18 feet long. Will it work for that?
A:
This Canoe Lock is the longest one of this type that we carry, and works for canoes up to 17' long... so a bit shy of the length of your canoe. It *might* work, since its close, but we can't guarantee it. It would depend on how the long cable sits on your bow or stern and how far away or wide the object is that you are securing the canoe too, for whether it will meet up with the loop on the other end, where you padlock it. Again - it could possibly work, but we couldn't guarantee it.
